Upcoming Special Events at FPCC

 

Serve, Eat, and Listen: A Sunday Morning Lenten Offering

Starting March 5th we shall again reach out to our neighbors in the Heritage Plaza/Towers, and we invite YOU to be a part of it! Breakfast requires cooking, setting up, serving, eating and cleaning up. We'll start serving in the Fellowship Hall at 8:00am, and end at 9:00am to give some time to clean up and not miss the service. All are welcome to come and eat - the only requirement is that you SIT WITH SOMEONE YOU DO NOT KNOW! This is your opportunity to listen to the stories of those who live across the street. Sign-ups for hands-on participation start this Sunday in the Fellowship Hall with Rebecca Chase. Breakfast served from 3/5 - 4/9. The Holy Spirit is at work!
