The other members performing the piece were Daniel and Melinda Perrin, Becky Hayden, Cristoph Hoashi-Erhardt, and Todd Pressley (on percussion).

Christmas Books!

 This Sunday (December 3), since it is the first Sunday of Advent, the FPC Library will begin displaying our Christmas books and movies!
We have books and movies specifically for children and adults and also for families as a whole. You can take a look at our online catalog here in order to see a list of all our books and movies.
Also, be sure to stop by and see our new Christmas decorations! The library was specially decorated for Christmas and we are really excited to have everyone see it. The picture at the top of this post is one decoration that you will see if you come by. Children can also stop by and color paper ornaments that the librarian will further use to decorate the library.
The library is open every Sunday before and after the service. As always, send us an email here if you have any questions.

Library Closed This Sunday

Due to the Revival Celebration Meal after the service this Sunday (November 26), the FPC library will most likely be closed. When all the tables are set up there isn’t enough room to open the library doors.
However, we hope to see you the next Sunday (December 3)! The library will be all decorated for Christmas and our collection of Christmas books will be displayed and available for check out. Also, children (and adults) can come and color paper ornaments and the librarian will use them to decorate the children’s bookshelves in the library.
If you have any questions, please email the library here!
