Talents’ Story From Irvington Presbyterian in Fremont…

Each congregation in our Presbytery received a check for $5000.00 at the end of July, as per the the Parable of the Talents.

Your invitation/charge is: Use this for mission in your local community, as you are led by the Holy Spirit.

Here is a Celebration story:

“Recently a newlywed couple joined our church from China. They’re seminary students and the wife had interned at Burlingame FPC. They have a desire to be ordained in the PCUSA and we’ve started the process with them.  Tuesday night our Session endorsed a new Mandarin language ministry in our church not knowing how to give it seed money.  Then we received the $5,000 check from presbytery!  Wow, what timing.  Exciting things happening here.”
