Make Your Stewardship Pledge Today

Stewardship helps fill this church with prayers of thanks to God.  In this church, we are
surrounded by people who pledge their time, prayers, and money to provide Christian care to
others – to the hungry, the thirsty, and the stranger – to the naked, the sick, and the friendless.
We are surrounded by people who have discovered the great gift of God’s love and Christ’s
teachings: When we give of ourselves and our work, we get far more than we give – and far
more than we can ever repay for the gifts bestowed upon us. Thanks be to God. Pledge cards
can be found in the pew racks. You may bring your pledge forward or place it in the offering
plate during worship. Online pledging and giving can be set up by following this link. Give
 in response to God’s grace and call when making your pledge.

PAS Presents: Alex Gilson Organ Recital - Friday, February 22, 7:30 pm

FPC’s own Alex Gilson will give his premiere Quad Cities performance on Friday, February 22
at 7:30 pm. Alex is a recent graduate from the Eastman School of Music with a Master of Music
degree in Organ Performance and Literature. He graduated from the University of North Texas
in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in both Organ Performance and Jazz Studies (Piano
Concentration). While at UNT he served as Organ Scholar at the Episcopal Church of the
Incarnation in Dallas. Alex advocates for the organ and its deserved place in the modern world
of concertizing and showcasing its theological implications and purposes. Director of Music
Matt Bishop states, “Alex brings to his playing a rare combination of technical prowess, mastery
of color, and a deeply palpable joy. His love of both the organ literature and the liturgical
tradition is immediately evident. We are excited for the congregation and the Quad Cities
community to experience his passionate and inspired playing.”  Tickets are $15 Adult; $10
Student and may be purchased in the church office M-F, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm or at the door on
