Sunday Worship service is livestreamed on Facebook Live at 10:00 a.m. This can be accessed at http:// facebook.com/fpcpontiac1. After the fact it can be accessed on our website: http://fpcpontiac.com (We had our first parking lot service and plan to hold 1-2 a month. Current plans include May 10 and 31, 2020 for Church in the Parking Lot. Wouldn’t it be nice to wave at one another from safely in your cars? We could even cruise the Woodward loop together afterward.)
Emergency Food Pantry:
We have partnered with First Presbyterian Church of Birmingham in an emergency food pantry for families in need of food. We are currently supporting 15-50 families a week with needed groceries. Birmingham has been bringing over about 25-30 bags of groceries most weeks for the pantry. We also have had people provide food and monetary contributions. Thank you to all who help feed families who are food insecure.
Food Ministry Food Cart:
We continue to provide food from the Food Ministry Food Cart for our community who are not in family units but are in need of food. The supplies for the food cart are from our normal food pantry supplies and they are dreadfully low. We would like to thank all who give regularly to feed hungry people.
Dinners to Go
They take place at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. With the help of only a few people we are preparing dinner for 50 persons. These are all completely packed dinners. Dinner and Coffee with a lid is served by our frontline people who are following COVID-19 food distribution requirements from the county including wearing masks during distribution and practicing social distancing. Thank you for all that come in and cook and others that serve and still others that do both. Without all of you this wouldn’t happen. Thank you!
We are sending out the bulletin and copies of all the hymns to the email addresses we have on hand. Folks can watch all of our services on Facebook whether while live or after the fact. People can also watch the service on the church website (fpcpontiac.com) after it is recorded. Newsletters are being emailed (and mailed.) Currently Bible Study, Family Night and the Session and Deacons meetings have all met on Zoom. However you prefer to meet, we will work to make a way.
We are mailing an annotated bulletin, sermon transcript and Home Touch weekly edition to members’ homes. Newsletters are also being mailed to members’ homes and emailed. We are currently sorting through who are those who prefer US mail service and who prefers email. If you don’t check your email, we would rather communicate with you through the postal service. If you would like to be changed from mail to email or from email to mail, please contact Pastor Laura.
Email List Updates:
Please send us a note by email or call the office if you prefer to get all communications by email only during this Pandemic time.
Silver Seniors and Deacons have identified persons to check on regularly and assigned names to folks to call. We want to make sure everyone has what they need, is healthy, receiving food and their medications regularly and are communicating with others. We do not want you feeling alone during this difficult time.
