Stepping Up: Stewardship 2016

Dear First Cong Family,
 
Before becoming involved in  the Executive Council a couple of years ago, I did not pay much attention to the church's finances.  They seemed pretty complicated, and I figured that knowledge was the purview of a few experts-the treasurer, the book keeper, and a handful of really dedicated members who actually read the annual financial reports.

Rainbow People Regrouped

Ten plus years ago First Cong had a group of LGBTQ Friends and Allies called Rainbow People that met monthly after worship for potluck lunch together. Sometimes the group had programming. Sometimes it was just a social gathering. Over the years, attendance at these gatherings diminished. The unspoken word seemed to be that the group was not needed anymore. Everyone felt comfortable and at home in the congregation.

Jazz Worship Returns

Last summer we experimented with a Jazz Worship service. By popular demand, Jazz Worship is returning THIS summer! The worship is an informal service lasting about 30-40 minutes. (Even the ministers don't dress up!) The focus of worship is to experience the Holy through a different style of music and liturgy. There are a few familiar parts of liturgy, but there are some additions too. Each week, a member of the church will share a 5 Minute Faith Journey. Last year these proved to be a highlight. The people who shared last year found it fascinating to put their journey into words, and those of us at the service learned new insights into people we thought we knew so well. Communion will be offered each time we worship.

White Priviledge: Let's Talk

In issues of anti-racism, it's important for white folk to do their own work. 
Understand your own spiritual autobiography of racism.  
Understand the cost of privilege. 
Ally-ship doesn't mean you are doing it for their sake. 
You do it for all of us - none of us are free until all of us are free.

Justice and Witness Ministries
