Through Lent – “Pilgrims in a Land of Promise”
God is a promise-making God. Often in Scripture these promises are called ‘covenants.’ Because God is the initiator of these promises, they are enduring. As pilgrims on a journey to an eternal city, we are surrounded – immersed as in our baptism – by promises. These promises give us hope, they undergird us with confidence, they are like a paved highway upon which we can make our way through difficult times.

THIS WEEK'S SCRIPTURE
8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, 9 “As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark.[a] 11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”
A Note to First-Time Visitors
We understand that the global health crisis has created conditions of pain and loss for many people seeking a faith community; we long to meet that need in your life, if this describes your life situation. However, in-person worship at FPC is closed at this time.
In the meantime, please join our digital worshipping community on our YouTube Channel, where you will also find music, prayer and faith formation resources. Or you can watch our weekly worship services at 1pm on LCTV Channel 66.
We also encourage you to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can begin to walk alongside of you in these times of disruption, and to sign up for our e-news here to keep up to date with us.
Please know that FPC leaders are using wisdom, humility, patience and love to guide our process for returning to gather in-person. We hope that you will stick with us until the way is clear.

For all of us, First Presbyterian Church of Lancaster is an exciting place to be affiliated with. There’s so much good work that has taken place in recent months – and it continues today and going forward. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our church continues to move forward to reach new heights. To do so, your individual and family support, through giving, very much matters.
