Mortgage PAID to Enliven Expanded Intergenerational Ministries & Service in the Community
Way back on March 23, 2020, we made the final mortgage payment on the church building at 1901 Vine Street! Finally (after a couple of postponed celebrations), on Sunday, June 5, 2022, we gathered to celebrate this milestone for the First Pres family with a “symbolic mortgage burning.” We gave thanks for all the saints past and present who helped us get to this point in our life of faith! We look forward, with great hope, to expanding our intergenerational ministries and service in the community using all our resources! Read more in this article by the Star Observer.
No Mow May & No Waste Box Embody Commitment to Caring for God’s Creation
Continuing our commitment to care for God’s creation, in May, we refrained from mowing the church lawn to help pollinators get a good start on their important work this year as flowering species in lawns bloom! Learn more about No Mow May! We also partnered with The Purple Tree in downtown Hudson to provide a TerraCycle No Waste Box to help people recycle “hard to recycle” things—in this case laminated paper packaging (ie. paper or cardboard with a waxy or plastic coating).
Three First Presbyterian Church Scholarships Awarded to Hudson High Grads
Congrats to the 2022 First Presbyterian Church Scholarship recipients Noah Bekemeyer, Emily Kleiber, and Kayla Jarppi! They were chosen from 30+ Hudson High School applicants to receive scholarships to support their ongoing learning and growth as they seek to serve compassionately in the world. Embodying our family of faith’s commitments to supporting young people and sharing God’s love in the world, all applications were considered and evaluated for financial need and altruistic commitments.
New Members Formally Welcomed on Pentecost
Just as the Holy Spirit added to the first followers of Christ one fateful Pentecost long ago, we rejoice that the Holy Spirit brought new siblings to our family of faith this Pentecost. We formally welcomed Steve & Joan and Vickie & Glenn (and family)! We look forward to growing in faith together!
