Stewardship

2024 Stewardship campaign runs Oct. 22nd through Nov. 5th

Dear Friend of FCPC,

 

We want to thank you for your participation in the ministries of Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church this year. Your participation has helped the ministries of the church to continue to fultill our purpose to joyfully participate in Christ's mission of love and peave, transformation and hope. For example:

 

Over 80 kids and 50 volunteers made Vacation Bible School a huge success.

 

The hard work of over 100 volunteers and staff allowed the Harvest Fair to raise over $110,000-a record amount- all to be given to local service agencies that minister to those on the margins. That's in addition to the $160,000 the church, through the Mission Committee, gave this year to support our long term mission partners. With an associate pastor once again focused on mission, FCPC sponsored its first adult mission trip since 2019.

 

Wednesday night children's programming has begun again. Saturday Tunes for Tots is connecting new families with the church, and both women's and men's retreats are being held this year for the first time in many years.

Our preschool saw record enrollment this fall - we now nurture the learning and faith of 160 preschoolers!

 

This summer, average in-person worship attendance increased to 20% over the previous summer. 

 

In the last year, the youth group participated in 9 service projects, 40 youth grew in their faith by participating in various summer trips, and the youth group consistently impacts the lives of more that 85 youth during the year.

Food Truck Friday welcomed hundreds of community members and church members to connect with each other and enjoy an evening of fun at the church. 

Most weeks more than 600 people come through the doors of our building, and they find staff here to welcome and minister to them; a safe place to worship, learn and grow; and people dedicated to equipping them to use their gifts in ministry locally and beyond.

And there's much more - too much to list in one letter!

And there's much more - too much to list in one letter!

This isn't just what your church did - this is what you did because of the church.

 

This year we celebrate FCPC's 70th birthday. The ministries of 2023 have been built on the foundation of your faithfulness, and all of the ministries of our church have been built on the foundation of Jesus Christ and the faithfulness of his servants here over the past seventy years.

 

The question we need to ask now is: How will our continued generosity help us build faithful ministry for the next 70 years?

 

Imagine our congregation 70 years from now. They will look back on what we made possible. What kind of generosity will they see when they look back? What will our gifts have made possible? What will we do now that they will give thanks for in decades to come?

We hope you will consider making a financial pledge for 2024 by filing out an estimate of giving card. Your pledge helps the church plan well for ministry in the coming year as we seek to build on the good foundation laid by the generosity of those who have come before us.

During the next few weeks please pray, "Lord, what do you want to do through me to help Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church continue to build faithful ministry on the foundation of Jesus Christ?" When we all pray this prayer, we trust that God will open the door to another 70 years of remarkable service and ministry.

We are eager to see what God is able to accomplish through your generosity.

Peace, 

Rev. Ginger A. Thomas and Rev. L. Roger Owens
