He is risen!

He is STILL risen! We continue during Eastertide in our Sunday Worship with this service, streaming April 11, 2021. Although our church is invited to watch all together at 10am, it is available all day (and permanently via our YouTube channel).

Information about today’s service (with “chapter” markings for the components) and FPC’s current events and resources are 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. You can also access it on our FPC YouTube channel 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.
