Pastor Eric on Study Leave

PASTOR ERIC ON STUDY LEAVE

For the next few weeks, Pastor Eric and his family will be traveling to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago and working on a new book. The working title for his new book is “Belonging Deficit” and it explores the contemporary problem of loneliness and how people struggle to feel connected to the places in which they live.  Please keep them all in your prayers for a restful and               productive time and he asks that we also be praying for revival here at First Pres.

 



Deacon Supported Ministry – Bridges of Love Northwest

Deacon Supported Ministry

BRIDGES OF LOVE NORTHWEST (formerly Love INC)

Is a network of Christian churches working together to provide help to the poor and needy in Pierce County.  Our church office receives numerous phone calls each week from people in need of utilities assistance. We refer them to Bridges of Love Northwest, whose trained staff carefully evaluates each request for genuine need. Payment is then made by the Deacons directly to the utility.
