Are you committing to grow in your quiet time with God during this UP season? Research says it takes about six weeks to develop a new habit, so let's take time this UP season to create a new spiritual practice together! Last Sunday, we received a "commitment card" to take home and pray over. THIS Sunday, we'll turn our cards in together during the Worship service.
If you are interested in joining a small group OR welcoming more into your current small group, sign up online or in Fellowship Hall during coffee hour. Contact Laurel Juergens for more info at email@example.com

Theology 201: The Sacraments of Baptism and Communion
As part of our UP Season, Pastor Eric will be offering a four-week deep dive into an important theological topic. This year’s topic is sacraments. The sacraments of communion and baptism are an essential and foundational aspect of Christian discipleship as well as our life together as a community. But as important as these sacraments are, they are often not well understood. Many mature disciples struggle to understand what is going on when we participate in the sacraments and many parents have a hard time explaining them to their kids. This class will answer some of the common questions about the sacraments as well as help us utilize them to strengthen our faith. This will be a four-week class starting on Sunday, Feb 5th from 9:15-10:15 in South Chapel.
Now is a perfect time to join Chancel Choir! We are rehearsing music for the winter-spring season and are preparing for Easter. We rehearse from 7:00 - 8:30 pm on Wednesdays in Ferguson Chapel.

Do you know someone who's searching for faith or meaning in their lives? Someone who needs a place where they can feel seen and heard as they wrestle with life's big questions? Alpha might be a perfect place for them to explore the basics of Christianity. We plan to bring Alpha back to FPC but won't be running a course this winter. In the meantime, if you have a friend you've been wanting to invite, please consider inviting them to one of the Alphas starting up in our area:
