God Cares. Yesterday today and tomorrow



All over the world folks are doing what they can to support and give comfort in this time of uncertainty.

Everything has changed but God is our constant. 

God will comfort the grieving and give strength to those who are in need

There is hope found through prayer and our continued faith that God will be there for all of us.



Our church family is amazing when called upon to help.

Some ideas.....
Fill the plastic container outside the parking lot door with food for the food pantry

Drop off cards in the office mail box to be mailed to area nursing homes or our shut-ins.

Put a sign with a word or picture of encouragement in a window or in your yard

Every day at 3PM let's all take a moment to connect spiritually with prayer.

A moment in time each day to pray for those who need God’s comfort and care.


Your deacons are available via email or phone. We are committed to help however we can.

The Lord hears when I call to him. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord

In peace I will both lie down and sleep.

For thou alone. O  Lord, makest me dwell in safety.

Thursday Thoughts –December 7th


Greetings, members and friends of First Congregational Church, Whitman!

My apologies for leaving so quickly following the Worship Service this past Sunday! As I mentioned, I was not feeling so great, and I thought it best to get home quickly, and not expose anyone at coffee hour to anything I might’ve caught. Fortunately, after laying on the couch all day watching football, I feel much better.

But, this coming Sunday I will be scooting right after the Service again! I beg your forgiveness! A church I formerly served is celebrating their anniversary, and I will try to get there before the reception is over, so I can spend a few minutes celebrating with them.

Ordinarily, I prefer to spend some time in fellowship after the Service. It’s an important part of our Congregational Identity that we fellowship together, share coffee and snacks, and be together! It’s a small thing, but I consider it an extension of what we do in the sanctuary - but with Cheez-Its! (And other treats, but those are my favorite).  Such a simple act, but it goes a long way toward us being Church together. Let us break “bread” together, and give thanks to God. And let us enjoy one another’s company, as Sisters and Brothers in Christ!

Please take a gift box from the Angel Tree and return it with a gift card for Game Stop, Kohls, Target or Walmart. Gift cards or monetary donations can also be dropped off in the mail slot or mailed to the church. Thank you for helping a teen have a wonderful Christmas.



CHRISTMAS PAGEANT Sunday, December 17, 2023 (during service) followed by our traditional “Happy Birthday, Jesus” party during fellowship.



STEWARSHIP SUNDAY is not just one Sunday but a combination of many. Thank you to those who have already pledged. Pledge cards can be put in the offering plate, dropped off at the office or mailed back. You can leave the amount blank if you prefer; we are grateful knowing you will be contributing, The 2024 budget depends on all our support for operating expenses as well as community and church programs.
