BLOODMOBILE--The blood mobile is at the church TODAY from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM. Please donate if you are able.
COMMUNICANT’S CLASS--During the week of July 20th-July 24th, from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Pastor Ray will be leading a communicant’s class for children 10+ years old. The purpose of the class is two-fold: 1) to provide a preparatory step for becoming a communing member at FPC and 2) to partner with parents to reinforce Christian faith in the home. If your child is interested in participating, please call the church office at 465-2742.
COMMUNION—We will celebrate The Lord’s Supper on Sunday, July 19th. Please pray that God will begin to prepare your heart to receive His means of grace.
We invite you to read ahead in your Bible the following Bible texts that Pastor Ray will be preaching on. July 19, Proverbs 5:15-23; 6:27-29; July 26, Proverbs 4:1-27; 10:1-27; August 2, Proverbs 31:1-9; 3:27-35; August 9, Proverbs 8:22-31.
CHRISTMAS FOR NAOMI’S HEART—Bags will be in the main area of the Genesis Center each Sunday thru August 9th. Each bag will have a list suggested and prohibited gift items and will have a boy or girl age designation. We ask that all donation be returned no later than August 16th. Monetary donations are also welcome; we can do the shopping for you if that is what you need. Any questions, please call Joanie Mains, 850/217-9972. Thank you for your support in this important charity.
SPECIAL NOTE TO ALL PARENTS OF GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN—Parents, since we are not meeting for Sunday school, please make sure you pick up a kids worship packet on the way in to the worship service each Sunday. Each Wednesday, we have a devotional reading and prayer for the kids on our website (fpclp.org) that will continue each week through September 2nd, in hopes we get to start Rock Solid the following week after Labor Day. Each Sunday, we have a children's Bible lesson on our website and YouTube that will continue all summer. It has a parent discussion page that parents can use to discuss lessons with their children.
JESUS LIFE DECALS- This is a strategic way to demonstrate that you are a follower of Jesus. Decals are on sale in the Gathering area after worship service each Sunday and in the church office Monday-Friday from 8:30 AM-3:00 PM, for only $5.00 each. The decal also includes our Church name and website. The decal has a clear background with white lettering.
We are encouraging folks to wear masks during the worship service. This will help make our brothers and sisters in Christ who struggle with health issues to feel more comfortable attending the service. The CDC recommends that a covering should be used when social distancing is difficult. Thank you.
If you know of anyone who is in the hospital or nursing home, please call the church office to let the pastors know so they can be included in prayer. We encourage you to pray for, call, or send cards to those who are hospitalized, or homebound. It will certainly make a difference in their lives to know that someone cares and is praying for them. This ministry is especially important since visits are not currently an option.
