Modified in-person Sanctuary worship

Sunday, September 26:
Rejoice! service at 9 am
Sanctuary service at 11 am
Masks are required.


 New Fellowship Cards at FPC: In an effort to make attendance safer and more efficient, we are trying something new. There will be a card in your bulletin with a QR code that opens an online form; just point your smartphone camera at the code and follow the prompts. If you do not have access to a smartphone, the card can just be filled out as-is. If using the paper form, place it in the offering at the end of the service. On the back of the card is a prayer request form. Your submitted prayers will be prayed for by staff members and kept in strict confidence.

Which part?

The Declaration of Independence is fascinating in its origins and formation, use outside the United States, and its perception by Americans. When we learn about the Declaration of Independence or hear about it in modern contexts, we only remember...

Miracles in the earth

If we want a garden We're gonna have to sow the seed Plant a little happiness Let the roots run deep If it's love that we give Then it's love that we reap If we want a garden We're gonna have to sow the seed ~ Crowded Table by The Highwomen  ...

We are not perfect, but like Presbyterians everywhere, we are reformed and always reforming. We think you can find a spiritual home here. Come and see!
