All-Church Campout 2019—August 24-25

 
Come join us on August 24th-25th for a campout on the ballfield at Camp McCullough. This is one of our most fun events of the year! Tent and RV camping only—no cabins are available for this event.
 
Camp will open on Saturday at noon—bring a picnic lunch and set up your campsite. We will have a potluck BBQ dinner Saturday night. Please bring your own meat to BBQ and a side dish to share. Let us know if you’d be willing to bring a grill from home. We will provide plates and utensils for the BBQ. You will be on your own for breakfast in the morning. (No food will be provided during the campout; everyone brings their own.) The waterfront will be open for swimming and boating. The weekend will conclude with our worship service by the lake and the Annual All-Church BBQ (meal provided).
 
Please contact Aaron Byers at abyers@fpctacoma.org with any questions about the weekend.

Watch the Lindsey Handbell 50th Anniversary Celebration

Last Sunday (May 19), 570 people filled FPC’s historic sanctuary to hear 37 handbell ringers celebrate the 50th anniversary of our beloved Lindsey Bell Choir along with brass, Chancel Choir, pipe organ and piano. Thanks to FPC member Chip Van Gilder, you can watch the three featured handbell presentations, including the official premiere of a new arrangement of “Come, Christians Join to Sing” by nationally recognized composer and arranger Joel Raney, which received a standing ovation. Enjoy!
