Choral Evensong “Seeking the One who found us”

CHORAL EVENSONG – “Seeking the One who found us”

Sunday, February 26th at 6:00pm  Sanctuary

Evensong has been part of Christian worship since 1549 with roots in the  English monastic tradition of the Middle Ages. The Chancel Singers lead the service which includes sung psalms, hymns, and gospel readings. Evensong is an ecumenical service offered to our community – those who are spiritually curious, the religiously overworked, and all who seek a deeper relationship with God.

Please join us for this contemplative service of spirituality and worship.

Our Stories: Suzanne Messenger

Suzanne Messenger, originally from Idaho Falls, has lived in Tacoma since 1971. She has been a member of our congregation since she accepted Christ in 1977 through a friendship with Susie and Bill Givens and also by being a part of the FPC Women’s Bible Study. Her life verse is Jeremiah 31:3, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore, with loving kindness I have drawn you.” (KJV)
 
In her early years at FPC, she was one of the Friday night youth leaders and whole-heartedly joined in with the youth in various activities. She laughs as she says, “I’ve pushed everything with my nose, while on my hands and knees, up and down the gym floor before it was carpeted!” She is currently involved with Women’s Bible Study and the Prayer Shawl Ministry.
 
Suzanne is also a lifelong reader and finds beauty in words and how authors frame sentences. She has fond childhood memories of riding her bicycle to the library every week to get a basketful of books! Last summer she led the Women’s Summer Book Group.
 
Suzanne has learned much about prayer from many people in this congregation who have prayed for her over the years. She is confident that God speaks to each of us and interacts with each of us individually, as well as corporately. “We always have a choice between fear and faith. I listen for His voice and even though I am not in charge, I am not afraid to ask and speak the power of His name.” Suzanne has prayed for many people, including those she has never met and looks forward to seeing them in heaven. “Prayer is such a privilege God has given us to join with Him in our lives and in the lives of others,” she adds.
 
Prior to recent cataract surgeries, she had to stop wearing her contact lenses for a few months for her eyes to regain their natural shape. “Waiting was very challenging, but God is faithful. Pauses in life can give us a glimpse of His perspective on our lives.” Now she exclaims, “It is absolutely amazing to see better than I ever have!”
