Please join the Stewardship Committee in celebrating “419 WAYS WE LOVE AND GIVE”.

During this season of stewardship as we ponder I John 4:19 our goal is to gather 419 photos in celebration of loving and giving. All church members are requested to share photos via Instagram related to our stewardship scripture “We love because God first loved us”. Think outside of the box as you share pictures that provide evidence of the following:

God’s love for us
God’s gifts to us
Our love for others
Sharing of God’s love with one another
Sharing of God’s gifts with one another

HOUSTON RELIEF

posted Aug 29, 2017, 6:25 AM by Christina Barnes   [ updated Oct 24, 2017, 5:41 AM by Beth Carmical ]

We all remember where we were October 8, 2016. We can still ride around Robeson County and see the destruction from Hurricane Matthew. The Houston area has been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. The officers of our church would like to reach out to that community as so many did for ours. So, we are asking members and friends of our church to make a donation in support of those who have been overwhelmed by the storm. 

In response to our tragedy, we were overwhelmed by the generosity of Presbyterian churches all over the country. Likewise, all proceeds from our church will go to First Presbyterian Church of Houston, Texas. They know the needs of the community and we are certain they will be good stewards. You can mail a check to the church, (PO Box 1061 Lumberton, NC 28359) bring it to the church office, put it in the offering plate, even donate by PayPal through our website (fpclumberton.org). Please designate it for Houston relief. We will send a donation early next week and bi-weekly after that. Also, continue to be steadfast in your prayers for all who have been effected by the storm."

God's Peace

Sermon Series

posted Jun 19, 2017, 8:43 AM by Christina Barnes   [ updated Jun 19, 2017, 8:43 AM ]

Last summer, David shared his summer reading list with all of you. What fun to ‘see’ inside his library. It is a way to know a little something about a person when we share our likes and dislikes of what we read. Perhaps that is why book clubs and small groups are so popular; they are more about building community than books. Many of you shared books with me before and during my knee surgery. I loved this time of reading. With summer approaching, I presented David with an idea: what if we preached a series where the topics or thoughts came from our reading of things that challenged or inspired us to study the Bible as a backdrop?

So for the next several weeks David and I will share the pulpit. You may recognize some of the titles of the books we’ve read and some may be unfamiliar. All our sermons will be steeped in scripture. The great Protestant Theologian Karl Barth once said we should always read the newspaper in one hand and our Bible in the other letting our Bible be our interpreter. Perhaps the same may be applied to other reading. Journey with us. I suspect you will learn about us and that God has things to teach us all from the greatest book ever written.
