Summer...

a time of renewal, peace, conquering challenges, and new beginnings as we continue to do God’s will at FPC!

 

From June 23rd - July 28th, we will be worshipping an hour earlier

at 10:00 a.m. 

 

Our children will attend a time of singing, prayer, and education during worship, followed by the wonderful learning experience of summer children's church.


A combined adult Sunday School class will also meet in the church library at 9:00 a.m.  

Everyone is invited to join them

and see what wonderful fellowship

they offer!

Summer Community Bible Study

Thursdays, June 13th – August 15th

Discover the gifts that we overlook from God, such as dandelions, little giggles, dirty laundry, and difficult times.  Using the devotional, “One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp, you are invited to join a special group of pilgrims at Aroma Cafe in Carthage.  Come early and treat yourself to a tasty treat at the Cafe, followed by a restorative time of reflecting upon how the weekly devotions have touched our hearts and inspired our prayers with God.  We will meet on Tuesday, July 2nd of the Fourth of July week.  Looking forward to "traveling" with you this summer!  To register, call Doris Russell
