Radio Broadcasts
2014 Radio Sponsorship
While the annual radio broadcast
sponsorships for 2015 continue to be confirmed,
there are early dates that are currently open
for sponsorship. Many of you have supported
this wonderful ministry that has been
broadcasting the 10:30 traditional service live
from the Sanctuary over KGNB Radio for the past
40 years. Sponsorships may be one-time or
annually on a special date, and/or in honor or
memory of a loved one or special event.
The cost remains at $160.00 and
sponsorships may be requested through the
church office at 609-7729 x10 or at
The Board of Mission has been praying that
this year would be a year of excitement and
expansion in both our support and participation
in missions opportunities at First Protestant Church.
Our missions giving this year will be spread out
among some very familiar names and projects,
as well as branching out into some new
opportunities with new missions partners.
Each month in this space, we will be
highlighting one specific missions project. Along
with general information about the missionary,
their family, their primary ministry focus and
location, we’ll also be providing the
congregation with specific prayer requests each
week. This way, we can join the missionary’s efforts
to reach people with the gospel in a very tangible
way – through our prayers. We’ll also have
specific “action points” each week, so that along
with our prayers, we can work alongside the
missionaries and participate in ministry with them –
even if we’re on the other side of the world.
Our missionary partners can generally be
organized into three categories: local, national
and global. It’s our desire to create and maintain
partnerships with ministries in each of these spheres
so that we are doing everything we can to be the
hands, feet and voice of the gospel here at home
and around the world.
Prayer Point – Please join us today in prayer
for our partner missionaries. Whether you know
them by name or not, ask God to bless them, their
family and their ministry. Pray also that God would
open your heart to mission activity.
Action Point – This week, support the S.O.S.
Food Bank by bringing RICE to the donation box
outside the nursery. FPC has pledged 500 lbs. per
month of non-perishable food items to the S.O.S.
Food Bank (and we only hit that mark once in
Prayers For Matthew
As many of you know, Matthew Parker is in need
of a kidney transplant. The hospital has begun a donor
campaign and has provided Matt a web page. The
address is:
Please share this information with your friends,
family and contacts. Let’s rally around this precious little
guy and work together trying to find a kidney for him as
soon as possible! What an amazing gift that would be!
Please keep the Parker family in your prayers!
GriefShare begins on January 15, 2015, in
the Mornhinweg Center and will be held every
Thursday from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.. Please contact
