Dear FPC family – I am just reaching out to let you know 3 things in this email about how FPC is responding in response to the impact of the Coronavirus in our community.
We will continue to have live service on Facebook Live this Sunday at 11am. You can find it in 2 places:
- On Facebook https://www.facebook.com/torringtonchurch
- On the FPC Website http://torringtonchurch.com/ click on “Online Services”
On Sunday we will launch our weekly Small Groups signup. You’ll be able to sign up for groups which will start meeting this week. It’s going to be a great way to connect, pray, learn and even fellowship during this time of shelter-in-place.
The church is not a building – but we are the church.
Donations can be made online at http://www.torringtonchurch.com/give/
Thank you for your faithfulness. Our church is, thankfully, not in need of anything. We have $0 debt. No mortgage. No credit cards or accounts to pay off. Thank God for that. How are we doing since the shelter-in-place? During the last two weeks, the number of donors is down considerably, and I encourage you to remain faithful as long as you still have income.
The online giving fees also go down significantly by doing an ACH payment (checking account) vs. Credit or Debit Card.
- Create an account by clicking the “Create Account” OR if you already use Faith Teams simply sign in.
- Click the “Add Card” button then click “Add Bank Account” instead
- Add your bank account, and you will get 2 small deposits in a day or two. Log back into the online giving form and confirm those amounts, then you can give directly from your checking account at 1/3 the fees of credit/debit.
If you prefer to mail in a donation, please send it to the Church’s Mailing address:
First Pentecostal Church 121 Beechwood Ave. Torrington, CT 06790
God bless you all, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Continuing in Faith,
Pastor Shane LaPierre
