do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with god
a message from pastor jo anne dyson
Honoring our Florida governor's directives, we will suspend worship in the Ft. King Presbyterian Church sanctuary for the time being. In lieu of that, we have two ways to worship. For those of you who have the internet, download Zoom.us on your computer or download the Zoom.us app on your smartphone. It is easy, even for non-techies like me. The church will email you the link needed to gain access. Use your cursor, tap the link, and it will connect you to the Zoom platform. This session is live, not recorded. You will need a computer with a camera. It will show your face and then mine (Reverend Dyson) at 10:30 AM on Sunday. If you don't want your face to be seen, there is a video symbol (in most cases at the bottom left of your screen). You can tap it and then you will not be viewed by others. There is also a mute button which you should tap after you are on, so we won't hear your dog barking or the doorbell ring.
Specific Steps to Get on Zoom.us
Login to Zoom.us at 10:25. Then, follow these steps to become a participant in the Zoom Worship Service.
1. Zoom works on desktop computers, laptops, iPads, iPhones, or Android devices. I believe there are more options available if you are on a desktop or laptop, but the people who were using an iPhone were able to join the Zoom session with no problem.
2. Once you are on the Zoom site, register. It is free.
3. I suggest going to the site 5 minutes before the actual meeting, so that you can get on and try different options: sound with video, sound only, without video, the size of screen, various views, etc.
4. On Sunday morning at 9:00 am click the link below, and it will connect you to the Zoom platform for the Adult Discipleship session. Below is the link to join that session:
The regular church service, normally at 10:30 am in the church sanctuary, is now being delivered via the Zoom internet platform. *
Speaking of offerings, please mail them in. Bills and salaries are still due. We appreciate your generosity.
Pastoral care is by phone calls. Call the church if you have needs. Unfortunately, hospital, assisted living facilities and skilled nursing centers are restricted now.
Continue to check your e-mail for updates. Announcements and a devotional called E-votional will be sent out on Tuesdays. Robo-call updates on Thursdays.
Stay strong in faith and connections. God bless us... everyone! Stay strong in faith and connections.

SOME OF our happy worshipers
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but I have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and have all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all that I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but I have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love."
