Dear Families,

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the cooler temperatures! Here’s what’s happening for FPC kids & families!


This Sunday

Our fall milestones have finished! This Sunday, preschool-5th graders are invited to come to the Biblemax Theater (CORL 305) at 10am for movie and a brief lesson on gratitude. (We will not be able to serve popcorn due to continued Covid guidance.)

**Coming to your inbox Sunday afternoon – This year, we are sponsoring 40 immigrant and refugee children through Faith Action International to help make sure they have a wonderful Christmas! On Sunday, I will be sending out a signup genius that lists the names and age of the children along with three categories of toys they have requested (i.e. dolls, building, games, etc.). If you sing up to sponsor a child, you will need to purchase three toys, wrap them, and deliver them to FPC by December 1. More details will be included on the singup, but it is a quick turnaround over the Thanksgiving holidays, so wanted to give everyone a “heads up!” n


Coming Up

On November 21, children & youth are invited to join together for doughnuts & hot cocoa in the breezeway at 10am. Then, all will head up to the youth room (Memorial 300) for an outreach Sunday.  We will learn about Hot Dish & Hope. We will assemble winter care kits to give Hot Dish Guests.

Please consider joining us at the Greater Triad Diaper Bank on November 21 from 2-4pm! We have LOTS of diapers to take and we need more helping hands!! See additional details and SIGN UP HERE. (If parents cannot attend, we can work out some carpooling! Just let me know.)

Advent is coming!! In order to plan effectively and make sure we have an appropriate amount of supplies, we are asking families to SIGN UP if you plan to attend the Family Advent Wreath Making during church school on Dec. 5 at 10am.

We are going to Passport Camp at Greensboro College July 11-14, 2022!! Passport Camp is open to current 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders. If your child is interested, you need to turn in the REGISTRATION FORM and a deposit by January 15. You can access slides from our information meeting HERE.
