Join us at the Camp for the Fall Festival from 3 pm to 8 pm on October 9th!
It’s time for our annual Fall Festival, which includes fun and games for all ages starting at 3 pm, followed by a Vespers service at 5 pm and then at 6 pm a Chili Cook-off! You may know this already but the term “vespers” simply refers to an evening service. This service will be planned for all ages to participate in. After the service, join us in the Lodge to enjoy a variety of chili, sides, and Halloween themed desserts. The Camp Committee will provide the drinks and table service. Please bring enough food (chili or sides) for your family plus 4 people so that we can all sample your favorite recipe! There will be a $5 entry fee if you would like to compete in the chili cook-off competition. The money collected from the entry fees will be added to the camp restoration fund. At the end of the evening the chili cook-off winner and best Halloween dessert will awarded a gift card (Feel free to bring your famous chili even if you don’t wish to participate in the competition).
If you’re not familiar with Whispering Winds Camp, why not join us on October 9th and check out what we have to offer? Maps can be found on the table across from the main church office or you can access additional camp information at www.whisperingwindscamp.org. See you there!
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Louise Farmer at email@example.com or Pastor Brent at firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
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.
