MEMBERSHIP | WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A MEMBER OF OUR COMMUNITY?
In this age of myriad valuable claims on our time and attention, we see membership in a church as a way to narrow our focus on what really deeply matters - our desire to grow in love of God, self and other human beings. Making a commitment to a group of people dedicated to these values provides direction and meaning to daily life. We recognize that we belong to one another and are supported in that belonging by the love of God. As church members, we consciously enter a community of mutual encouragement. We sense that experiencing the Spirit in our gatherings strengthens our open-heartedness in all we say and do and increases our desire to serve in the world.
If you are interested in joining with us, know that we regard membership as being commissioned to grow in your relationship with Spirit and to engage in an authentic life of ministry with your own unique gifts.
Whether or not you plan to become a formal member of FPCSR,
do come and spend time with us.
We welcome you.
PLANNED GIVING | WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
All of us are indebted to the past, to those who precede us. We drink from wells we have not dug. We enjoy liberties we have not won. We share faith whose foundations we have not laid.
At the same time, We are seeds of the future, for those who succeed us. We dream and envision and set things in motion. The fruition of our decisions will be known only to others whom we will not meet. We are called to partner in faith with those who have gone before us and to offer the best that we have to give to those who will follow.
