This Week at FPC

Reception for Buisch Family 
On May 21, we will host a dessert reception following the service to thank the Buisch family for their service to the church and wish them farewell. There will be a basket for cards if you would like to write a personal note. 

Host Homes

The Middle School Mix Conference is at JBU, but we need a couple of host homes for July 24-27. No meals needed, just space for sleeping bags and a bathroom for 4-5 students and a leader. Contract Dri if interested.

Young Children’s Worship Volunteers Needed
We are looking for volunteers to help with Young Children’s Worship during the summer. If you love Preschoolers and can help during the sermon once every 4-6 weeks contact Dri Bayer for details.

One-Day VBS
Can you be a part of the 2023 One-Day VBS, Saturday, June 24, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.?

Here are some ways you can be involved:

  • Join the VBS planning team – We’ll meet a couple of times this month to plan out our schedule, activities, lessons, etc.
  • Volunteer as a group leader – We will have two groups of kids with two group leaders each. You escort them to each of the stations and act as crowd control at each station.
  • Volunteer as a station leader – Kids will rotate through stations like music, crafts, story, games. The station leader organizes and leads the kids and their group leaders through their station.
  • Volunteer in support roles – These are the heroes behind the scenes that prep the lunch, organize the supplies, pre-cut or prep any activities, help set up and transform the building to our theme, etc.

Canopy NWA
Canopy NWA is a refugee resettlement agency that helps families as they arrive to the U.S and make a new home here. They need volunteers to be on co-sponsor teams that will help the family move into their house, get groceries, and learn about the community, etc. Co-sponsor teams are the “first friends” of our refugee families. Contact Caitlin Kretzer for more information or to get involved.
