We have so much fun singing Christmas carols with our friends, playing beautiful Schulmerich handbells, and sharing our love of sacred Christmas music! Please stop by and join us.  (standing room only…) Our devoted Bells of Heaven Handbell Choir played with masks all the way through the COVID pandemic! Such a blessing!

 

ChristNet returns, December 4 through December 10!

The ChristNet program is seeking volunteers to help FPCD renew its participation in this ministry to assist our homeless brothers and sisters in the Metro area. Each evening, we will be supplying dinners for 32 homeless guests, and there are several ways to participate: by purchasing the food (menu provided), cooking the meals (at home or at FPCD), packaging the meals in “to-go” containers (provided by our program), or delivering the meals to the motel in Taylor where the guests lodge each night. So… are you a wiz in the kitchen? Sign up to cook pasta, burgers, or another crowd-pleasing dinner for a night! Don’t trust yourself around an oven? We need folks to purchase and deliver the meals too! Or sign up for multiple roles! Sign-up forms (with menu items) are in the Narthex or online: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080849ADAC2BA5F94-christnet

Please join us in lending a hand to our homeless friends in this amazing program! Contact Anne Witkowski anne.e.witkowski@gmail.com or Kevin Watts kwatts43@yahoo.com for questions or further details.

Thank you!

Chosen Part 2

It’s no longer hidden. The word is spreading that Jesus is the Messiah. Increased fame brings growing crowds, new disciples, and more miracles. It also brings trouble. Join us at 9:00 in room 14 for discussion on the Chosen by Dallas Jenkins based around season 2.  We will meet weekly through March. If you did not participate in last year’s discussion based on Season 1 that is o.k. Jump right in, all are welcome!
