The Joy of Giving


Please pledge to support our 2019 ministries.



July Hunger Focus

hunger logoIn July, during each of our combined worship services at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary, we will highlight one of our ministries to people struggling with hunger and learn how we can help. We want to celebrate the ways our church has helped while also learning how we can become more fully involved. Our financial gifts make our ministries possible, so we're raising $40,000 for hunger relief this month. Please give online (use the FPCHunger blank) or by using the special offering envelopes in the pews on Sundays.

Combined worship in July

sunOn all four Sundays in July we will have one, combined worship service at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary with different musical styles each week:

  • July 21: UNCG's Old Time Ensemble
  • July 28: Our Rejoice! Band 

Rejoice! returns to Mullin Life Center Aug. 4.

'Danny on Daniel'

Rev. Danny Massie, our interim pastor, continues "Danny on Daniel," a study of the Book of Daniel. Danny says Daniel has a particular relevance for our current life and times and warrant a revived interest. Like Daniel and his Jewish friends living in Babylonian exile. Christians today must realize that we are a minority people living as it were in an alien culture which no longer shares our values and our views. How will we cope and remain faithful in such a time?

Thinking about visiting?

We welcome visitors each and every Sunday. If you'd like to explore our church, we suggest beginning at the Welcome Center, 617 N. Elm St., where greeter-guides can direct you to classes, worship services, or the nursery. 

A place for families

During our 10:30 am Sanctuary service, the Virginia Gilmer Room offers a live feed from the Sanctuary so nursing mothers or parents with restless children can worship in a more comfortable environment. The space offers comfortable seating, worship bags for children, and a nursing screen. Children in this area must be supervised by a parent or guardian. Additionally, our nusery, on the first floor of Mullin Life Center, is open during worship.

Parking assistance

The Parking Assistance Ministry team (PAM) has spaces on both sides of Greene Street reserved for our members and visitors with special needs. PAM volunteers can assist with guiding you to appropriate parking. If you are being driven to church, you may be dropped off at the Greene Street entrance while your driver parks.
