"One of the greatest values of the church is providing a community for you and your kids. A place where they can feel safe, have meaningful discussion with a caring adult, and to ask the tough questions. We all need this type of community." -Parenting Beyond Your Capacity by Reggie Joiner & Carey Nieuwhof

​During the school year, grades 7-12 meet Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. in our Family Life Center to have fun, be challenged, and explore what it means to be a Christian.

1st Sunday 2-Cents a Meal Offering

On the 1st Sunday of the month, our children hold a special offering for all to participate in.  The 2 cents a Meal Offering helps alleviate hunger in the U.S. and the world through food programs for the poor, promoting free trade for locally produced products, promoting for wage campaigns and many other programs. By setting aside 2 cents each time we are blessed with a meal, we can make a difference!

Please place in regular offering basket in envelope with amount, marked “Special Offering.”

FELLOWSHIP OF THE LEAST - PENNY FOR A PRAYER

If you would like to participate in the Fellowship of the Least Coin, be sure to pick up information and a devotional book this Sunday in the lower vestibule of FPC.  Just a penny for each prayer goes a long way in helping impoverished women and children around the world.

 

Because of COVID-19, programs, events, and even worship is in a stage of constant transition.  Please stay tuned to announcements on Sunday mornings, our website, Google Calendar, and through our One Call Now phone tree as we update and make changes to our calendar.
