Our Sunday Worship Service for October 25, 2020 is available below starting early Sunday morning (and permanently via our YouTube channel), although you are invited to watch as a church family “together” at 10am.

Information about today’s service (with “chapter” markings for the components) and FPC’s current events is further down this page, as usual, in lieu of a bulletin. 

We continue to learn and experiment with online worship, and are grateful to worship “with” you! As we seek to care for the shalom of our city and county, know that God is at work in all things. May we each be wise, compassionate, and discerning as we care for one another. Philippians 4:4-6

Click the linked picture above to view our service. Access it here on YouTube if the link above does not work for you, and/or if you would like to join in “passing the peace” using the comment feature.
