The Flower Ministry Needs YOU!
Each Sunday members of our Flower Guild provide beautiful flowers for us to enjoy during our services. Afterward, these flowers have a chance to keep on giving … on church desks and tables and on bedside tables of members who are unable to attend services, but to do that volunteers are needed after church on Sundays or on Mondays. No particular skill is required – simply the willingness to share your time and energy to place the flowers in vases and/or deliver them. Please sign up for a Sunday on the registration table around the corner from the church office (a team of two can also work together) and Kitty Bosher will be happy to meet with you and show you the ropes. Please consider volunteering for this important ministry.
Volunteers Needed for FPCCares Ministry
A new ministry, FPCares, is reaching out to our members who, for whatever reason, are unable to be as active in their church family as they would like to be. Please contact Susan Carden if you are willing to let them know that they are missed and keep them connected through phone calls, cards or notes, and/or visits.
