This Week at FPC

FPC Community Calendar

The Community Committee is very excited to have a new “FPC Community Calendar.”  When you visit the event calendar on the church website, look for purple events. These are our community calendar events. Make sure to check it out frequently and add events of your own. This section of our calendar is a place to share informal events hosted by people within the church that are open to the congregation. Events can be planned parties or showers but also less structured events like meeting for coffee, play dates for families, or getting together to play basketball. We want this to be a way for our church to connect outside of Sunday morning. 

Our first event on the calendar is for a baby shower for Brandy and Ryan Cowell. All are invited to attend on Saturday, January 8, at the Brick Ballroom. 

NWA United Conference
On Saturday, Dec. 4 the NWA United Commission conducted a seminar for our church related to cultivating our presence in the city and developing relationships with our neighbors. The seminar covered in church’s involvement with NWA United, context of race within the broader, historical church, and what we, as Christians, can do to make a difference. In case you missed it, you can get a copy of the full presentation deck here. If you have any questions, you can contact any of the commission members, members of the Outreach Committee, or Jonathan.
