s we come to worship God in our sanctuary at 9 and 11:15 am on Sunday, September 30, we will be celebrating Rev. C h a r l e s Bl a c k’ s retirement after 25 years as Associate
Pastor of Community Ministries here at First Presbyterian Church. Charles and Ann and their family joined our church family following Rev. Black’s call at the congregational meeting on December 6, 1987, and as they say, “the rest is history”! In fact, having checked with our Archives and History Committee leaders Bill Lyons and Susan Daugherty, we have discovered that Charles Black is the longest serving minister of our church since the congregation was founded in 1848. There will be a gala dinner in Fifield Hall on Friday evening, September 28 at which time a number of church and city leaders will recognize Charles’ remarkable and inspiring ministry among us, and our choir will also be present to help us rejoice on that special
night. There are still a few seats left if you’d like to come, so please call the church office to make your reservation. Then, after the worship services on Sunday morning, we will all gather again in Fifield Hall for a church wide reception to honor Charles and Ann and the members of their family, including a number of them who are coming from out of town. At that time, we will share some parting gifts with Rev. Black and ask him to share some final remarks before closing the gathering in prayer. And that’s why our sermon that morning is entitled “Let The People Say Amen!”, for Rev. Black has been our prayer leader in so many ways for a quarter of a century, lifting our ministry and mission to the Lord, seeking God’s blessing, forgiveness and grace, and inspiring our hearts and minds to draw closer to our Heavenly Father…”O kind and loving God” – just as Charles has prayed all these years. So “let the people say amen!” as we look forward with great anticipation to the Charles Black Retirement Celebration over the weekend of September 28-30. Thank you Charles, and may the Lord bless you and keep you and all those whom you love! Faithfully Yours,
12 noon on the theme “Civility and the Common Good – Peace On Earth”

hose who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
Wait for it, wait for it... Like the punchline from a good joke, timing is often everything. STEWARDSHIP
“Christ at the Center: Renewing Our Strength”—our church theme comes from this passage, and how reassuring it is. How comforting to hear that we can keep going—run without weariness, walk without fainting, fly like eagles! Great news for twenty-first century Americans. Do something! Accomplish things! Move ahead! But notice that the first verb here is not “renew” or “mount up” or “run” or “walk.” It’s a verb many of us detest. “Wait.” We are not a nation of waiters. Waiting is an annoyance and a waste of time. The Israelites were like that too. They wanted to hurry up to the Promised Land, to zoom out of exile. But God said, “Wait.” Waiting, Isaiah reminds us, is necessary for the renewal of strength. Though difficult, waiting is vital. The running and walking do not happen without the waiting. 4
At FPC we’re going to be waiting on God quite a bit this year. How can we wait faithfully? We can’t force changes to happen any sooner, but we can shore ourselves up for the journey ahead. This Stewardship Season, you are invited to consider five ways that we as a congregation can do this. Think of it as developing our WINGS: W orship (come to church) I nvite (bring friends) N urture (learn with and care for each other) G ive (offer our treasure to God) S erve (offer our time and talents to God through the ministries of FPC) As we prepare to kick off Stewardship Season on October 28, consider how you can commit to these ideals. Can you come to church more often? Bring a neighbor to worship? Call a fellow member you haven’t seen in a while? Make an extra gift? Volunteer? If we can do these things as we wait together for what God is bringing, we will indeed keep Christ at the Center. We will renew our strength.
he Partnership Ministry is marking a very special milestone during the month of October. It will be 10 years since the ministry first began as a joint effort between First Presbyterian and Hillside Presbyterian Churches, under the leadership of Rev. Connie Lee. The Partnership Ministry has been a very important part of the spiritual lives of FPC members Darryl Payne and Lisa Richardson. Darryl has served the ministry as communications coordinator for the past several years: “It has meant a lot to me to serve Connie Lee and the members of the Partnership steering committee in this capacity. I have had the opportunity to see and hear firsthand the influence that the ministry has had, such as in the lives of students who have been mentored through the Whiz Kids tutoring program, Dekalb County drug court participants reunited with their families for a day of fun and the joy of children hearing bible stories at a VBS in Negril, Jamaica. Recently Connie and I had the privilege of sharing a forum on the book and movie ‘The Help’ with some of the FPC Sunday school classes. I shared with the classes that it is important to me personally, coming from a multi-racial family, that we all find ways to share our differences and learn to work together to better the community. This is what the Partnership has accomplished and is still working to achieve.” Please join the Partnership Ministry in celebrating 10 years by attending the joint worship celebration on Sunday, October 7 at 4pm at Hillside Presbyterian Church and the community concert on Saturday October 13 at 5pm at FPC.
It’s been said there are the righteous who think they are sinners and the sinners who think they are righteous. Setting aside a day to look honestly and deeply at the children of our community and the world they live in.
I have to be honest with you – I think we have an appreciation for righteousness. We tend to recognize and applaud it. But when I think about the way Jesus described the way He is calling us to long for righteousness, in the same way we hunger and thirst, I realize we will inevitably have a hard time with that Lauren Patrus because most of us don’t know what it means to be truly hungry or despern Sunday, October 21st we will join with congregations around ately thirsty. We have instances in these states, but it’s not our prolonged reality. the world to observe Children’s SabThat can make it difficult to understand, bath.

A verse that I have a hard work out, with the way Jesus is found unavoidable lately is Matthew describing His desire for our attitude 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger toward righteousness. But He has someand thirst for righteousness, for they thing greater for us. shall be satisfied.”
By setting aside a day to look honestly and deeply at the desolate circumstances so many children of our community and world live in we are stepping towards a deeper understanding of the longing for righteousness Jesus was talking about. When we come together for worship on October 21st we are stating as a community that we will seek righteousness for all children of God. As you prepare to join us on the third Sunday in October, I encourage you to pray for our congregation. Ask God to show us collectively and individually ways we can engage with the countless struggles of His children. The problems can be overwhelming, but He has created a way for us to be a part of His provision of righteousness for all. Ask Him to show you your role. I look forward to worshipping with you on this special Sabbath.

The Bereans were critical thinkers who, with study, became believers. (Acts 17:10-12). This year our theme is “What is the Church?” It is the people who meet in God’s name, but also an institution, a place, the foundation of our culture, and much more. On September 30, Craig Goodrich will join us to discuss “What is the Church? A look at different understandings of the church through the years.” Please join us. All are welcome.

Its sessions, both lecture and free discussion, have centered on historical settings at different stages of church development, evolution of creeds, history of religious freedom in this country, church in society that is open to all religions, and many more. In short, as one member has described the class, one does not check one’s mind at the door when one enters the class.

FPC Food Drives A tasty look at the various Food drives offered here at First Pres. GAYLE WHITE
First Presbyterian’s Venable Food Pantry furnishes basic groceries to feed people of all ages, so it’s only fitting that people of all ages have an opportunity to contribute non-perishable food items to the pantry. Christian Ed, in cooperation with Community Ministries, stages three major food drives each year to feed the large number of Atlantans who need help. More of those people than ever are children, says Community Ministries’ Mary Joe Dellinger. The last round of food drives collected more than two tons of groceries to pack the pantry shelves—but those shelves empty quickly. The drives “are really essential” to the pantry, which serves more than 60 families a week, Mary Joe says. In the bleak mid-winter, sports fans look forward to the Super Bowl and the youth of First Pres begin collecting cans of soup for the Souper Bowl. This
first food drive of the calendar year is part of a national program that encourages churchgoing teens to fight hunger by helping local charities. Each January, the youth Sunday School classes at First Pres compete for the Souper Bowl championship, awarded on Super Bowl Sunday. The Venable Food Pantry is always the real winner. As Lent approaches, so does the Adult Food Drive. More than a dozen adult classes haul in thousands of boxes and cans in a tough battle for the Charles Black trophy, a new annual award that goes to the class bringing in the most items. Other prizes go to classes with the most beans, meat and cereal. With fall comes the Children’s Ministry Food Drive, when the nursery, preschool and elementary children of the church are asked to bring in their

offerings for the pantry. The weekday preschool also participates. This drive, too, can result in a fun fight for the title of Most Enthusiastic class and full shelves to serve needy neighbors. In addition to the specific food drives, Every Member Can boxes and bins are placed throughout the church all the time. Members are asked to help fill them every Sunday. September 30
