Celebrating twenty-five years of musical excellence and spiritual nurturing with
a farewell reception
honoring our Minister of Music Steven R. Jobman - Sunday, June 7, 12:00 noon, Davenport Outing Club
Annual All Church Picnic - Sunday, June 14, 11:00 am
With the congregation’s support, dedication, love, and many volunteer hours, the
Deacons have been able to minister to our brothers and sisters in need through
local, national, and global projects. The Deacons thank you from the bottom of
their collective hearts! To celebrate, the congregation is invited to the Annual All
Church Picnic, June 14, at 11:00 am. All the food will be provided (hamburgers,
hot dogs, veggie burgers, baked beans, salads, chips, beverages, and desserts).
There is no cost to you! If you wish to contribute, please bring two non-perishable
food items for the Sacred Heart Food Pantry so that “they may eat just as we eat.”
There will be games for the kids and plenty of fellowship for the adults. Please
join your church friends for food, fellowship, and fun at the picnic.
In an April 27, 2015, letter written to the congregation of First Presbyterian
Church, Steve Jobman
shared, “By God’s grace, I have served as the Minister of Music of First Presbyterian Church,
Davenport, Iowa, for twenty-five wonderful years. I will be eternally grateful for the privilege of
ministering in God’s name side by side with you from 1990-2015. During these years we have
shared many great joys and also profound sorrows. I have been immeasurably blessed by sharing
my life with each one of you, many for an entire quarter of a century.”
One of the hallmarks of the 175 year legacy of First Presbyterian Church is its
reverence for and
valuation of the role music plays in making our faith journey genuine. Countless men, women, and
children received their spiritual foundation and musical inspiration here at
FPC; and, Steve has
been the instrument for this nurturing path that so many have taken.
We will celebrate his ministry at a Farewell Celebration on Sunday, June 7, with
a worship service
at 10:00 am, followed by a reception beginning at 12:00 noon at the Outing Club (2109 Brady
Street, Davenport). There will be a light lunch and the program will begin at
1:30 pm. Please
RSPV by using this link; the cost is $10 per person. Reservations must be made before 12:00
noon on Tuesday, June 2. A purse is also being collected for Steve as a thank you for his service
to FPC. If you wish to contribute, please note “Jobman Purse” on the memo line of your check, or
make your contribution online under the “Steve Jobman Purse” option.
Steven R. Jobman
Minister of Music (1990-2015)
