A Community Screening entitled "Being Mortal" will be held at FPC on Sunday, September 25, after the 10:45 Worship Service. Lunch will be served, followed by the screening and a discussion.
On Sunday, September 11, there will be an Involvement Fair in The Well at FPC from 9:30 a.m. to 10: 30 a.m. This provides an opportunity to stop in and get information about the many programs and activities that resume in September: Kid's Club and Youth Club, Adult Christian Education, Small Groups, and Bible Studies.
Don’t Miss the Opportunity to Sit at the Feet of Jesus! Jenny Wall, a Spiritual Director, will be providing an opportunity to those who want to learn how to practice Self-Care. A total of 3-hour training sessions will be offered at HopeNet, located at 2501 E. Central, Suite 2 (see times below), so that we may learn to be more attentive to the workings of the Holy Spirit in our own lives, and be better equipped to care for those in our caring ministries. This training is specifically designed for our Stephen Ministers, Deacons/ Commissioned Deacons, and Elders, but is open to anyone in the congregation. Please email Joan Aldrich at email@example.com or Louise Farmer at firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Brent at email@example.com if you are interested in attending. It is our goal to provide 20 or more people for this event at $60.00/person which will be provided by the church. The time and topics to be discussed are as follows:
Tuesday, September 20 from 6-8 pm at HopeNet to cover the first two Sessions:
Introduction to Spiritual Direction
Tools for Individual Spiritual Direction.
Tuesday, September 27 from 6-7 pm at HopeNet to cover the 3rd Session:
Practice and Reflect on Experience of Individual Spiritual Direction
REGISTRATIONS: In order to be prepared for the first session, we would like to receive registrations by September 13th for all the participants. The application form is provided by the following link:
Truly, summer is a great time to adjust to a new rythym in the life of the Church now that Pentecost has come and gone. Those who normally attend the 9:00 AM service in the Chapel and 10:45 AM service in the Sanctuary get to attend the 9:30 AM service in the Sanctuary. Long time members get reintroduced as new friendships are made and strengthened.
According to the liturgical calendar, we are in Ordinary Time which is anything but ordinary when you consider that the church has been sent in the power of the Spirit to proclaim and embody the Good News of Jesus Christ. Thus, it should come as no surprise that summer is a great time to send our Youth on mission trips. Our Youth will be going to El Salvador and Ghost Ranch this summer. Our children will be engaged in VBS and Games Camp. Our Camp (Whispering Winds) will be busy receiving groups when the pool opens. Please join us for any or all of the Summer activities found on this website.
The Worship and Music Committee is proud to announce a new worship service that will happen in The Well on the first Sunday of the month starting February 7, 2016. We have decided to call it “12:15 Encounter” because the service will begin at 12:15 pm and it will be based on Jesus’ Encounter with the Woman at the well in the fourth chapter of John’s Gospel. (Catchy title, isn’t it?)
Join us on the 2nd Monday night of the month from 7 pm to 9 pm for Celtic Music at The Well. A group of local musicians practice and play Celtic music and Mountain music. Sometimes they even dance to the tune (https://youtu.be/jWjW92ZctCA). Enjoy your favorite Latte or Smoothie prepared by our Baristas waiting to serve you.
