Happening this Week at FPC

Upcoming Events and Announcements

Part-time Position Opening:  Session has approved creating a part-time salaried position for a sound board technician to replace the volunteer approach we are currently using.  This individual would be responsible for providing technical, audio and video support during the course of Sunday worship services, weddings, funerals and other church activities.  The position could be filled by a single individual or shared by two individuals.  If you are interested, please contact the church office at 660-747-5731 for additional details.

Plan to stay after worship next Sunday (November 24) for our Stewardship Luncheon.  Bring desserts and side dishes to share as well as your pledge to present in worship.

There will be a LGBTQ Fellowship group gathering at First Presbyterian Church in Fellowship Hall on the second Tuesdays of the month at 5 pm. 

Marine Corp Toy’s for Tots box has been placed in the Fireplace Room at FPC.  Please place new toys in box.  If you wish to donate money, make checks payable to Toy’s for Tots and place in offering plate or bring to church office. 

“You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”  (Deut.10:19)   Some have asked how we, in Warrensburg, Mo., can support refugees on our southern border.  PCUSA has supported refugee resettlement for decades according to a statement by the Rev. Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, the stated clerk of the General Assembly.  “We must find justice in the ‘halls of power’ as God works through all of us to transform a broken world.”   Our Mission Committee has purchased printed postcards stating the position of PCUSA regarding the dismantling of the current resettlement program.  We are encouraged to sign and send them to our U.S. senators and representative.  They are available on the table in the fireplace room along with addresses in Washington, D.C.  Postage will be 35 cents.
