This is a new group forming through JFPC. You do not have to be a member of the church to participate. Be a part of their inaugural gathering.
FAITH AND FITNESS GROUP FORMING
Many of us have recently come to the conclusion that we could be taking better care of our “temples of God” (bodies). In other words, we know we’re out of shape and we want to do something about it. Whether you want to shed a few pounds, build up endurance prior to a big trip, or just make exercising more meaningful and fun, you are invited to join us as we walk and pray for our community – growing both a physical and spiritual discipline.
This is open to all regardless of ability. We’ll start slow and short for those who are beginners and work our way up in endurance and strength. We’ll meet THURSDAYS AT NOON at the Hillsdale College BIERMANN ATHLETIC CENTER TRACK beginning on August 15th. Bring your walking shoes!
1st Sunday of the month
Grief Group Our congregation has suffered significant losses in the past couple of years. Many in our midst are grieving – the loss of loved ones, jobs, relationships, health. If you are in grief, (over anything), you are invited to JFPC’s Grief Group. We have no curriculum, no agenda, no purpose other than to listen, to support each other, and to offer a safe place to grieve openly. We will meet Wednesdays at 1:15pm. (Come earlier for a crêpe and coffee
Back by popular demand – Wednesday 10:30 am Bible Study begins May 8. In May and June we will be journeying through the book of Genesis. All are welcome
The Fellowship and Out-
reach Committee has been
working on a new church
directory. At this time, ad-
ditional information is
needed before publication
can begin. All adults/
parents are being asked to
complete a directory infor-
mation form. The name
and date of birth for any
dependent children can be
added to one of the parent's
form. If you have not com-
pleted a directory form,
please do so as soon as pos-
sible and return the com-
pleted form to Vicky Arno.
Forms will be available in
the Fellowship Room.
Thank you for assisting us
with this project.

This ministry of hospitality began with a desire to provide a Christian environment, in which people can congregate, to develop relationships leading to greater self and interpersonal relationships with each other and God. 10% of the proceeds each month will be given to local, non-proift and service organizations such as Hope House, Community Action Agency, Domestic Harmony, Youth trips, or a food pantry.

Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So
use your gift well. – 1 Peter 4:10 (CEV)
It’s November! That means “Stewardship Month.” Traditionally, that means it’s time to talk about money.
At Jonesville First Presbyterian Church, it means that it’s time to talk about giving – of our time, talents, and
yes, also money. It’s a time to reflect upon priorities – in our lives, in our scheduling, in our church program-
ing, and in our budgets.
In today’s world it’s easy to get so distracted by the busy-ness of living that we can overlook what our habits,
spending, attitudes, and schedules say about what matters most to us. I once heard a pastor say, “Show me
your checkbook and I’ll tell you where your heart is.” I don’t think that’s necessarily true anymore with to-
day’s costs of living and many of us not having a discretionary income, but his point is well taken. What do
we prioritize with our resources? What difference does sharing what we have (whether time, or passions, or
financial resources) make in our lives and in the lives of others?
This November we’ll be hearing from different church members each week in worship who will share with
us the ways and the reasons they give – of their time, of their gifts, of their resources, and of their finances.
We’ll be asking members to prayerfully consider how and what they would like to gift to the church in the
upcoming year, and we’ll craft our 2020 budget accordingly. We’ll receive financial pledges on the first
Sunday in Advent, December 1.
As we consider what “Stewardship” means to each of us, I invite you to reflect on the many ministries and
programs JFPC offers, and which are important to you. Maybe you value the coffee house and the outreach
that happens there. Or perhaps you enjoy the beautiful flowers and the memorial garden on JFPC’s property.
You might find you value our worship services with vibrant music and challenging messages. Your children
might benefit from our Sunday School, VBS, and Youth programs. Or perhaps fellowship or educational
opportunities are more your thing. All of these need resources, people, and funding to continue to grow.
As you ponder what gifts God has blessed you with, we invite you to prayerfully consider how those gifts
may be used in the service of others here at JFPC.
