An Extra Hour of Sleep Tonight! Daylight Savings Time Ends

Remember that you can get an extra hour of sleep tonight because Daylight Savings Time ends and
you should turn your clock back one hour. So church will feel a little later in the morning on Sunday!


A Christian Perspective on Fasting

 
If you are fasting in preparation for today’s Solemn Assembly (or even if you are not), you might be interested in this article by Richard Foster exploring the Christian discipline of fasting.


Books on Revival and Prayer!

 
As many of you know, this Saturday (November 4) is a Solemn Assembly in order to pray for revival. As part of our church’s focus on revival and prayer, this week (Sunday, November 5) the FPC Library will be highlighting books about revival, spiritual renewal, and prayer on the library display tables. We hope that these books will be a good resource for people looking to learn more about revival, spiritual renewal, and prayer even after the Solemn Assembly.
 
Many of our prayer and revival books (especially our new ones) are in our online catalog. In addition, we have a selection of prayer books for children that may be helpful in involving children in our focus of praying for revival. You can also find our fiction, biographies, commentaries, reference books, youth books, children’s books, DVDs, and other media listed here.
 
The FPC Library is located in Fellowship Hall and is open every Sunday before and after the service. Do you have questions or need help locating a specific book or topic? Please send us an email here.

Thank You from FPC!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

To all the preschool parents and church family volunteers who made the Meet, Treat and Greet and the #FORtacoma Trick or Treat Events such an amazing success. Over 600 children and adults participated in this super fun evening.  

 



Solemn Assembly

SOLEMN ASSEMBLY

Saturday, November 4th 4:00pm Sanctuary All ages welcome to participate.

A Solemn Assembly provides a time for God’s people to gather for the purpose of repentance and mourning. We are hoping that the Solemn Assembly will give us an opportunity to repent of anything that may be preventing us from receiving what God wants to give us and we hope that it may also be a time where we can express our deep longing to experience God’s love, holiness and glory.
