Due to Coronavirus COVID-19 precautions, events and activities at FPC have been temporarily cancelled.   Upcoming events will be announced by the FPC Session as soon as possible.

Churchlife News & Events



The Christian holiday Lent begins Ash Wednesday, lasting 40 days (excluding Sundays). Representing the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness, Lent is a time in our faith to reflect, fast, and give penance in preparation of Christ's resurrection on Easter Sunday.



In response to Centers for Disease Control and Presbytery of Coastal Carolina protocol, all events, activities, gatherings, meetings, worship services, etc. at FPC Carthage

are canceled through April.

May's schedule will be announced by the FPC Session on or after April 30th, 2020.

Please stay connected with your FPC family by viewing Facebook Live Sunday sermons

and video updates on our Facebook page Fpc Carthage.  Sermons can also be viewed by visiting the  FPC Video tab  on our website www.fpccarthage.com.

Through our deep faith and trust in God, may we continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit as the Body of Christ beyond the church walls - connecting through phone calls, emails, social media, and most importantly, through our prayers.  May the peace of Christ which surpasses all understanding be with you in the coming days.






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.




First Presbyterian's Family Life Center serves as a collection site for ministries and missions.  This year, FPC welcomes a new local ministry – HOSPICE CARE BAGS for patients and their families.


Kleenex, Gripper Socks, and Dollar Store Large-Print Word Searches are needed, in addition to toiletries, snacks, calendars and writing pens.
