Where do we feel the Spirit moving?

We are embarking on a process of prayerful, deliberate, corporate discernment. As we look to mark our 200th anniversary in 2024, now is the time to seek God’s will and prepare to respond boldly to God’s call. You are invited to participate in small group sessions to engage in questions and conversation about who FPC Greensboro is, what gifts we possess, what needs we are called to address, what hopes stir our hearts and where we feel the Spirit moving. Sign up with Tami Lundy (call her, 336-478-4799). And please pray. Pray for the Spirit to speak. Pray for us to have the ears to hear and the wisdom to heed God’s living Word. Knowing that God is always doing a new thing, pray we will perceive and act on it.

Honoring our pastor and friend

Sunday, August 21, at 10 am, we will officially dedicate The Dolly Jacobs Memorial Welcome Center. A beautiful portrait of Dolly and her radiant smile will sit next to a plaque that states “All are welcome here.” Please join us for a brief blessing, some refreshments, some fellowship, and, surely, some laughs as we honor our pastor, our friend.
