One Great Hour of Sharing

FPC will collect the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering on Easter Sunday.

In Mark 12, Jesus explains that the two most important commandments are to love God with all our heart and to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Through One Great Hour of Sharing, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) responds to these commandments by helping our neighbors in their time of greatest need. Whether we’re offering relief in the wake of a devastating storm, providing food or access to clean water, or assisting in the empowerment of our oppressed and marginalized brothers and sisters, One Great Hour of Sharing is an annual opportunity for us to show our love globally to our neighbors in a very tangible way.

Thank you for joining Presbyterians across the country as we share our love with our neighbors through the work of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People ministries.

Advent, Day 10 – Not So Random Acts Of Kindness

The thing about kindness is that you have to decide to do it. Reflexively we have two responses to most situations that do not give some form of anticipated or imediate reward - fight or flight. What if our default position was to be kind  might that not transform the world? It has been said that kindness is within our power, even when fondness is not. Today, take time to be kind to someone with whom you do not have a reason to be kind. Make eye contact. Don't just ask how they are doing, find out how they are doing. Do what you can to acknowledge another soul, and you may find that you are the one who feels less alone at the end of the day.

Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another" Zecharia 7:9
