2014 Flower Chart
 
 

We still have several opportunities to sponsor the Sunday flowers for 2014.  Please consider sponsoring a Sunday any time during the year.  The cost is $35.00. 

 

Joy & Bernie Scott of Joy of Flowers donate the flowers,  so all of the money given to FPC goes to the “Children in Need” Fund.  Not only are you helping to beautify the Sanctuary, but you are also honoring or memorializing a loved one or a special event in your life.  If you have any questions or would like to sponsor a Sunday, sign the chart or call Laura Meyer.

 


Service Opportunities
 
As we experience Holy Week, it is a great time to reflect, make new efforts, and demonstrate our gratitude for our blessings through care and service toward others. Under the direction of the Deacons, a CARE team has been created. To learn more about this and other service opportunities, check out the many options we have posted on our Ways to Help page.
 
 
 Featured Artist in the Lounge
 
 

Our current artist is Susan Henshaw, a lifetime resident of Union Pier, Michigan. She explores nature with her camera, and interprets these images creatively in oil, pastel, or graphite medium. Susan is self-taught.  She is the recipient of many awards.

Missional Transformation: Discovering God's Dream
 
 
The Church has a divine calling, and its life and purpose are not its own.
The church exists to discern and participate in God’s mission.
 
That is why we have embarked on this journey with other churches in the Presbytery of Wabash Valley. For more information and to learn our timeline for this journey, please click here.
 
 
 
Our Heritage
 
 
Shirley Ryan, church historian, has been working on a new exhibit in the Heritage Room, on the west side of the narthex. This exhibit highlights the various places we have held worship services during construction, renovation, and fire repair. Also, showcased are the many and various Women’s Association activities over the years. Stop in before or after worship or any other time to enjoy our rich heritage.
