Dear Families,

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week! Check out all that is happening at FPC!

**Please note: Next week (Jan 24-28), I will be out of town at a Christian Education conference, so there will not be an E-News next week! Please keep this one in your inbox and refer to it for any questions about Jan. 22 AND Jan. 29!

ūüíóūüíóAs¬†February¬†is approaching, we are once again partnering with Pastoral Care to provide some Valentine love to FPC members who could use a little extra love! As we have done in the past, if your family would like to create and deliver a sweet treat to another FPC member, please¬†SIGN UP USING THIS FORM. There are more details on the form. If you have previously participated and would like to deliver to the same person, you may indicate that on the form. Please let me know if you have questions!¬†
