"GENEROSITY SUNDAY"

On this first Sunday in February, “Generosity Sunday," we will once again celebrate the beginning of the annual Stewardship Drive which provides the resources to support our programs and expanded facilities.  Stewardship is a spiritual issue. It is a privilege which allows you to directly link your resources with your most dearly held values. You will have the opportunity to submit your pledge at the service. This year the service will be lay led by members of the Stewardship committee and others including Helen Jones, Michael Paladini, Rachelle Reisberg, Ann Sadler, Bob Selling, and Ann Walker participating. We will have jazz players at both services, and the choir is preparing some special pieces, including the Bruckner Locus Iste, which should make for a great Sunday!

"My Journey with Alanon"

The Rev. Susie Phoenix

Al-Anon is a 12-Step program for people who have family members and/or friends who struggle or have struggled with alcoholism and/or addiction. I will focus on Step 2: “Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.” What could that possibly mean in a culture that prizes self-reliance and individualism? What could that possibly mean from a fuzzily spiritual, agnostic, or a-theistic point of view? Does it imply that I’m insane? Let’s dig in and find out!

Susie Phoenix has been a member of FPC since 1991, and associate member in more recent years. She received her Master of Divinity from Andover Newton Theological School in 2002, and was ordained at this church in 2004. She received accreditation to practice ministry in The United Church of Christ in 2010. She has served 5 churches of varying denominations and blends and has worked in hospice, prison, and nature ministries. More recently she has been working with special needs children as she drives them to and from their programs. She also tends gardens for 7 months a year.  For the past 18 months she has been engaged in Buddhist practice and study and has attended many retreats.  She is in the process of formulating her own unique, emerging community ministry.

"MUSIC MOVES US"

Led by Mike Pfitzer, Director of Music, FPC

From the hymns we sing in church, to playing an instrument while growing up, to being a concert attendee, many of us have been touched by music's moving power in our lives. Have you ever connected with a beautiful melody or an entrancing instrument? Are you ever moved by the combination of a favorite poem and a choral anthem or solo song? Do you ever feel inspired by singing a hymn that connects to a message from a service or a sermon? At these services, we will explore the many ways in which music moves us. The Youth Choir at 9 AM and the Adult Choir at 11 AM will help steer our journey, members of our congregation will share the ways in which music has impacted them, and we'll sing many of your favorite hymns. If there's a hymn you'd like to hear in particular, please let Mike know by Feb.8. (music@fpc-stow-acton.org)
