Friends in Christ,
We have some news to share that is both exciting and sad.
Stephanie Foltz has faithfully served God through the position of FUPC’s
Director of Christian Education for over 20 years. She has decided to open a
new chapter in the great story of her life starting this June. I will let
Stephanie share the news with you in her own words below. I will simply say
that I will be forever grateful for the impact that Stephanie has had on my
ministry, my family, our church, and our community. More updates and future
plans will unfold in the months ahead.
God bless Stephanie Foltz…
Letter from Stephanie…
much prayer and discernment, 2023 is the year I will begin a new season in my
life! In June, I will retire as FUPC’s Director of Christian Education to
become a fulltime grandmother, mother, sister, and daughter. I will be moving
to Delaware to share in the care of my two youngest grandsons (one arriving in
am announcing my retirement this early to give the Personnel Committee of
Session and the staff time to pray for and dream about FUPC’s future. Knowing
that God is faithful, and God’s steadfast love endures forever, I wonder what
God already has planned for FUPC?
have loved my ministry here at FUPC. My family arrived in August 1993, and I
joined the church staff in 2000. This is the longest I have been a member of a
church! You have been my family as well as my church home, and I am so grateful
and I will miss you all.
Enough for today! We still have work to do between now and the beginning of
June – preparing lessons to share God’s love with children on Wednesdays,
leading worship and telling stories of God in Children’s Chapel, organizing
Souper Bowl of Caring and PYC Mystery Day, planning adult faith formation, and
doing so much more as the hands and feet of Christ.
