Make Your Stewardship Pledge Today
Stewardship helps fill this church with prayers of thanks to God. In this church, we are
surrounded by people who pledge their time, prayers, and money to provide Christian care to
others – to the hungry, the thirsty, and the stranger – to the naked, the sick, and the friendless.
We are surrounded by people who have discovered the great gift of God’s love and Christ’s
teachings: When we give of ourselves and our work, we get far more than we give – and far
more than we can ever repay for the gifts bestowed upon us. Thanks be to God. Pledge cards
can be found in the pew racks. You may bring your pledge forward or place it in the offering
plate during worship. Online pledging and giving can be set up by following this link. Give
Thanks in response to God’s grace and call when making your pledge.

Blessing of the Animals - Sunday, July 7, 8:30 am outside on the west lawn
FPC’s Blessing of the Animals annual worship service is Sunday, July 7. 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 and companionship of animals, and in the poor. Francis
became known as the Patron Saint of Animals and is one of the most admired monks and
mystics in the history of the church. Bring your pet, large or small, to be blessed and
celebrated. Pet family photos will be taken after the service.
In addition to celebrating your own, happy pets, you are encouraged to bring
donations for the
King’s Harvest No Kill Animal Shelter in Davenport so that animals waiting for their furever
homes can be well cared for. Items needed include dry or canned dog and cat food, cat litter,
cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, pump hand soaps, and office supplies. Monetary donations
will also be gratefully accepted. For more information, please contact a member of the
Congregational Development & Fellowship Committee.
