We, the church, have finished reading Debbie Irving's Waking Up White, but the Lord has not finished with us or our work! Many of you have said, "What's next?"
We will continue seeking where God is leading our church in the fight against systemic racism and prejudice in our next study entitled "Mission" from the PCUSA Engage curriculum.
The resource Engage: Mission has been created to make sharing the good news of Jesus Christ just a bit easier. Putting in a good word for Jesus, especially among people needing to hear that word, is never easy. But joining together to share our faith openly, to enlarge our understanding, to connect our stories with God's redemptive story, to practice various approaches, and to encourage and pray for one another will make our call to be evangelists easier. .....It may not be the easiest thing you have been called to do, but it is by far the most rewarding.
The dates of the study are as follows: Feb. 11, March 4, March 18, April 8, April 15, and May 6. We will continue with a simple snack after the worship as we study and discuss God's Word for us. You will need your Bibles for this study.
May 20 is "Be the Church" Sunday. One of the choices for that day is to participate in a Walk of Faith to observe our community through the eyes and heart of Jesus. The Engage study will help to prepare ourselves for this experience. We will gather for lunch to share our experiences and to pray together for the needs of our community. Study books will be available to you on February 11. No need to sign up, just come!

Around the world, millions of people lack access to sustainable food sources, clean water, sanitation, education, and opportunity. The three programs supported by the One Great Hour of Sharing - Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and Self-Development of People - all work in different ways to serve individuals and communities in need. From initial disaster response to ongoing community development, their work fits together to provide people with safety, sustenance, and hope. More information about the offering and the three programs can be found at:
OGHS is the single, largest was that Presbyterians come together to work for a better world.
Look for special envelopes in the pews in March. Special envelopes are not required, though. Please write check to Liverpool First Presbyterian Church with OGHS in the memo line. We will collect the OGHS offering through Sundays in March and dedicate it on Palm Sunday March 25.

Due to the generosity of our church family with offerings, a generous
memorial fund, and a successful program, we have the funds to add on to
our play yard and replace pieces of equipment. We are putting together a new and improved play yard for our preschool children and our own young children of the church. A dedication of the play yard in honor of Chris will be celebrated with our combined LFPC and FIF families on Saturday, May 5 from 11-12. Rain date will be May 6 from 1-2. We hope you can come and honor our dear sister, Chris Schauer, on this very special day.
Before we know it, spring will be here and at time the Women's Association will have its semi-annual Rummage Sale. The date has been set for Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please think about helping by donating clothing, small knick knacks, children's toys etc. We will not be accepting used shoes or books this year. There is also a need for bakers, so consider making something delicious for the sale. We need many hands to sort the items, work the day of the sale and clean up after it is over. (men helping is always appreciated). If you have never been a part of this ministry, please think about helping. We would like very much to have you join us. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Putman.
A group of LFPC members are putting together an Artisan Fair to be held Saturday, May 19. That is the same day as our annual plant sale for Friends in Faith Preschool. We hope to hold the event outdoors ~ weather permitting. If you are a crafter and would like to join in the fun, please start making and saving up your handiwork ( all types welcome) and become part of our Mission. Our only exclusions will be edible or topical items as we don’t want any allergy issues! The fees of $20 to enter the show and get a table to show your wares will all go to supplement the funds of Friends in Faith!
Each crafter will price and sell their items during the 9:00 - 2:00 show. We are sure to have a wonderful variety of home made craft items from all our talented crafters. If you are interested, please contact Lisa Bricault (315-715-4303).
