What is it to renew? A simple definition is to make new, fresh, or strong again; to make a promise
to begin again especially with more force or enthusiasm. The theme of renewal is identifiable and abundant in
Christian faith and spirituality. We recognize that throughout the Bible the message told is of renewal and
Are we in control of renewal? The answer is ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ We are in control of our actions and setting time
aside for renewal-fostering activities. Committing to taking time in our busy lives to take vacations, providing
our minds and hearts the needed space to gain perspective and be open to seeing God’s will and plan, all offer
opportuties for renewal. However, often we are caught up in the day-to-day cycle of checking off our “to do” lists, not putting
aside time to reflect and renew. Take time to renew by reading the summer issue of FIRST PRESS -- a publication promoting all of the
programming of First Presbyterian Church.

Initiating the Congregational Dream of Envisioning 20/20
Listening for God when we Pray - Join in the Daily Unity Prayer
Follow this link to opt-in to receive the daily Unity Prayer email message. The prayer will also be on the church’s
Facebook page, so “like” and “share” with others. We encourage all members and friends to take a moment to pray
around noon every day. Listen to God when you pray. This is a time when all members and friends ask of themselves:
“Am I living as a Disciple of Christ?” This dream is drawn from our congregation conversations on Spiritual
Development and Discipleship. This traditional of praying at fixed times thoughtout the day was practiced by Jesus
himself. FPC is a community in which all are invited to join in the journey of learning to love and be loved by God.
Battle Hymn Sunday - Sunday, July 3, 10:00 am
The Sanctuary Choir, the Celebration Singers, and anyone else who wants to join,
will sing the famed “Battle Hymn of
the Republic” on Sunday, July 3, for the 10:00 am worship service. We will meet at 9:15 am in the Sanctuary. Anyone
and everyone in high school and older, who is available to sing is welcome to join us. If you can be here, we need your
voice lifted up with us!
Blessing of the Animals - Sunday, July 10, 8:30 am
Bring your pet—large or small, all are welcome!—to the 8:30 am outdoor worship service. There will be unique music,
prayers for creation, and a special blessing for each pet. The Blessing of the Animals is an ancient custom associated
with St. Francis of Assisi. Always at home in the company of the disadvantaged and the dispossessed, Francis
recognized the Divine Spark in the beauty of creation, in the love of the companionship of animals, and in the poor; all
of this has made him one of the most admired monks and mystics in the history of the Church. Pet photos will be taken
following the service. Donations will be accepted for the Scott County Humane Society. Items needed include: dry or
canned dog & cat food, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, pump hand soaps, and office supplies.
