Nepal Earthquake Response

Out of chaos, hope

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is working with ACT Alliance and other partners to initiate a rapid assessment and emergency response plan to the 7.9 earthquake that struck Nepal near Kathmandu.  

Go to www.pcusa.org for the latest information and for opportunities to  give and make a difference.  100% of your donation to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance that is designated for Nepal Earthquake relief will go to just that.

Holy One, you are our comfort and strength in times of sudden disaster, crisis, or chaos. Surround us now with your grace and peace through storm or earthquake, fire or flood. By your Spirit, lift up those who have fallen, sustain those who work to rescue or rebuild, and fill us with the hope of your new creation; through Jesus Christ, our rock and redeemer. Amen.

Safe Church Policies for Children & Youth
Most every Sunday morning you hear me stand in front of the congregation and tell you that “this is a safe and sacred place…”  We wanted to inform and reassure you that we have put into place safe church policies that are guided by the policies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and reflect current practices nationwide for activities involving minors.  Here are the steps that we have taken to seek to insure the safety of our children and youth. 

·        All children are supervised by at least two adults at all times - in Sunday school, children’s and youth activities,  choir rehearsals, youth group meetings, confirmation classes, and youth overnight retreats, mission trips, and pilgrimages.

·        Infants and toddlers are cared for on Sunday mornings during worship by two or more professional adult babysitters who have undergone thorough background checks.

·        Youth participating in overnight retreats or events are supervised by at least one adult of each gender.

·        All adult chaperones of overnight trips will undergo a standard background check.

·        It is our practice to maintain a smaller youth-to-chaperone ratio than is required by the hosting organization during our pilgrimages and mission trips.

·        Ordained pastors, elders, deacons, and Stephen Ministers are considered mandated reporters by the Presbyterian Church (USA), as well as the state, and are charged with reporting any concerns immediately.

These measures contribute to the safe and sacred place that is First Presbyterian Church.  We appreciate your understanding and support of our safe church policies.  Together we will provide for the well-being of our children and youth, truly make this a sanctuary where all God’s children will not only be safe but will flourish. 

Grace & Peace,

Paul & Kibbie

Adult Education Class, Wednesday, May 27

Join us this Wednesday evening as the 8 amigos – Beth Hersam, Barbara Wentzel, Sherman & Peg Bull, Linda Martin, Jeanne Hart, Judy Hopkins & Paul – share about their journey to Guatemala to work with Common Hope.  Guatemalan fare will be provided at $10 per meal.  There will be pictures a-plenty.  You will hear first-hand accounts of how Common Hope is making a difference in the lives of the Guatemalan people and how you, too, can discover your own life renewed as you help to bring hope and joy to God’s children in this particular part of God’s world.
