We are people of the resurrection!
We know that God’s story did not end with Jesus’ death
on the cross. Neither was it complete upon his resurrection. God’s
salvation story continues to unfold. The book of Acts records what happened
in the early years after Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension.
This portion of God’s continuing story spans about 30 years and covers
the lands between Jerusalem (where the Church began) and Rome (the political
center of the empire).
Beginning on Easter Sunday at 9pm, NBC will be airing a 12-week mini-series
called A.D: The Bible Continues. Based on Acts, the series is advertised to
portray the world-changing events that followed the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
We will begin preaching and studying the book of Acts together and while we
hope the A.D. series will be a helpful and an accurate dramatic portrayal of
God’s Word, don’t substitute watching a mini-series for studying
scripture itself! Individuals and small groups are encouraged to study Acts
beyond Sunday morning in worship or a T.V. show. See Sharon Early if you are
interested in a studyguide.

Be an active part of the discerning process:
On Sunday, May 3, we will hold our sixth discernment session. This session
will be a Q and A on the terms of dismissal from PC(USA) to ECO. There will
be sessions at 10:50am and 12:10pm. Light refreshments will be served for
those staying for the latter session.
Call for a Congregational Meeting
The Session of First Presbyterian Church, Endicott, is calling for a congregational
meeting on May 17, 2015, which will follow one worship service at 10am.
The purpose of the meeting is to allow the congregation to vote on the
Session’s recommendation that the congregation ask Presbytery to
dismiss FPC Endicott from the PC(USA) to join ECO: A Covenant Order of
Evangelical Presbyterians. The congregational vote is not the final step
in the process, since only the Presbytery has the authority to release
a congregation to another Reformed denomination (PC(USA) Book of Order,
G.3.0303b). However, the congregational vote is crucial in guiding the
decision Presbytery will make. Bringing meaningful closure to the discernment
process requires the participation of everyone in this critical vote.
