For All:

Rally Day: September 10

Our Rally Day activities include Sunday School and Youth registrations, and will kick off the 2017-2018 program year. The focus for our program year will be hospitality. After worship, please join us for a potluck. It will be a great time to catch up after summer vacations. Watch for further details in bulletin inserts and in The Messenger.

Rally Day T-shirts are available for purchase for $8.00. Order forms will be available online, at the church picnic, in the Narthex and at the Welcome Desk Info Kiosk. Orders are due by August 22.

FPC Festive Fall Fellowship: October 29

The Fall season brings warm colors and comforting smells of apple, cinnamon, and pumpkin. After worship, join us for dessert and peruse the Annual Book Exchange. We invite you to bring your favorite fall dessert to share! Hot coffee and cider will also be available.

Chili Cook Off: Late January

Fire up your stoves for the Annual Chili Cook Off! This year is poised to be the “best ever” with more amazing chili concoctions, yummy sides, and more fun for the whole family. Treat your taste buds to some of the best chili at FPC. We will vote with our dollars to raise funds for Youth programming.

Pi(e) Day: March 11

Our Annual Pie Day will align with Pi Day. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159….. Pi Day is celebrated around the world on March 14 (3.14).

End of the Year Celebration: May 20

Stick around after worship to share in an end of the year treat as we conclude another year together.
