Hospitality Teams 2018

We are searching for new hospitality team members. As always, we need 8 members per team per service. Team members will warmly greet members and guests while distributing bulletins as they enter the sanctuary. Team members are also needed during the offertory to pass plates and then sort monies and connection cards once collected. After the service, team members are needed to help pick up items left in the pews. This is a wonderful way to serve as a family or as an individual. Please join us. or contact Tony Inglis, 

March 2-4

NaCoMeSpring Retreat

If you haven’t been on a youth retreat here’s what to expect: daily worship together, fun games like gaga-ball and Human Foosball, yummy cinnamon rolls, and much more! FPC pays for half the cost for each student and the full cost for adult participants. So, join us for a weekend away filled with worship and fellowship. 

Mission Trip

Last June Cathy and Hank McCall took Sebber Banda and Tom McDow up on an invitation to “come and see what God is doing” in Mozambique’s Tete Province. For more than a decade, The Outreach Foundation has helped to facilitate a creative holistic evangelism project in Tete Province that demonstrates God's love through churches, schools, clinics, water projects, health initiatives, leader training and more. Tom has let me know there is room on the upcoming trip and invites FPC members to consider the opportunity. "It was a joy and education to have walked these grounds with this group, meeting so many new friends. Both Hank and I were influenced, blessed and changed by the experience.” Trip leaders will be project director Rev. Nedson Zulu, Public Health Nurse Sebber Banda and Outreach trustees Berry Long and Tom McDow, (Tom is our local friend and a great person to experience this journey with!) The dates are June 11-21, 2018, so decisions must be made quickly. Mark the Connection Card.
