The 2019 Stewardship Campaign

We’re going to do something different for Stewardship this year. For six Sundays, we’re going
to marry the spiritual practice of stewardship with six practical acts of stewardship, in support of
six Deacons’ ministries, based on Matthew 25: 34-40 NRSV: When Jesus gathered the
Disciples on Mt. Olive, just before His death, He said that when the Son of Man comes in His
glory, He will say, “Come you who are blessed by My Father … For I was hungry and you gave
Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed
Me, I was naked and you gave Me clothing, I was sick and you took care of Me, I was in prison
and you visited Me ... just as you did it to one of the least of these members of My family, you
did it to Me.”

Our hope is that, as we all prayerfully consider our stewardship pledges for 2019, we can join together as a thankful congregation in six
practical acts of stewardship. Through these practical acts, we can show our thanks and our faith that God provides for us in all circumstances
of our lives, and we can show that we are part of how God provides for others. Please bring the much-needed items listed above to church on
the Sundays indicated. You will be invited to bring them to the front of the Sanctuary.

First Presbyterian Church and Quad City Arts' Visiting Artist Series
Welcomes Gaudete Brass - Saturday, October 27, 7:30 pm

Founded in 2004, the Gaudete Brass Quintet is devoted to presenting serious brass chamber
music at the highest level of excellence and to encouraging worldwide appreciation of the art of
brass chamber music through live performances, recordings, education, and the creation of
new works. The quintet has been featured on concert series, radio broadcasts and at
universities throughout the country. The group has engaged in live performances at venues
such as Merkin Hall and Symphony Space in New York City and Millennium Park in Chicago,
commissioned new works from noted composers such as David Sampson, Jonathan Newman,
John Cheetham, Steven Bryant and Stacy Garrop, and appeared on radio broadcasts on

WFMT in Chicago and Nashville Public Radio. Gaudete (gow-day-tay) is a form of the Latin word for “Joy.” We support the idea that chamber
music, even (and perhaps especially) the serious kind, can powerfully communicate both the poignant and the exuberant. Tickets for the
Saturday, October 27, 7:30 pm performance are $15 for adults and $10 for students and may be
purchased online or at the door. For more
information, please contact Director of Music Matt Bishop (563-326-1691, ext. 201;
