The focus of this week is about the gathering of family and friends for Thanksgiving, but once the weekend arrives our attention turns toward Christmas.  To anticipate and celebrate the meaning of Christmas we observe Advent with some of the following events and activities:

Advent Wreath Making Festival 

Sunday, December 1 – 4:30 PM, Ingram Hall

Children, adults, and families are invited to come decorate an Advent table wreath for your observance of Advent at home.  We’ll provide materials including a re-usable, wrought-iron base, greenery, and decorations at a suggested donation of $10.  We conclude the evening with a brief program and lighting our first candle of each Advent wreath as a community experience.  Click here to read a beautiful reflection on what the Advent wreath tradition means for one FPC family.

2019 Music Festival

A long-standing tradition of our Church is to present the message of Christmas with an annual music program.  This year’s music presentation of Lessons (Scripture readings) and Carols is scheduled for Sunday, December 8 at 4:30 & 7:00 pm.  Vocal and instrumental musicians from our congregation make this a featured event for our community.  Invite  a guest (promo postcards are available at the Connect Center) and arrive early for optimum seating.


Angel Tree

The Community Service Team’s Angel Christmas Tree will be in Ingram Hall after the 8:00 and 9:00 AM worship or in the Sanctuary entrance after 10:30 AM worship December 1 and 8.  Select a tag of a wished-for item to give as a present for under-served students of Kids’ Street Charter School. To volunteer, email Lisa Anderson at or call her at 318-7879.

The angel said, “Don’t be afraid! Look! I bring good news to you—wonderful, joyous news for all people.  Your savior is born today in David’s city. He is Christ the Lord! Luke 2:10-11 (CEB)
