We share the sad news of the death of FPC member Ella Mae Wade, who died last Sunday, January 28. Her funeral was Friday. Let us give thanks to God for the life of Ella Mae and remember her family in prayer as they grieve.
THANK YOU to Bryan Lewis, our Deacon for Building & Grounds, who installed the new handrails in the sanctuary! They are beautiful and will help create safety and inclusivity for more people to serve in worship leadership!
Do you think no one should have to sit alone in church their first Sunday? Do you believe relationships are important when attracting and integrating guests? If you answered “yes,” please consider becoming a shepherd or shepherd family. Shepherd families/people are those who are willing to make first time guests feel welcome by greeting them and sitting with them if the guest desires not to be alone. They might also introduce them to others close by. Talk to Pastor Chelsea if you feel called to this very important ministry. Training will be in February.
