Disaster Relief for Puerto Rico

DISASTER RELIEF FOR PUERTO RICO

Out of concern for the people of Puerto Rico dealing with the aftermath of hurricane Maria, we would like to suggest a link to World Vision for donations.

If you would like to contribute to their disaster relief go to:

https://donate.worldvision.org/give/hurricane-maria-disaster-relief

A basket will also be available in front of the sanctuary if you would like to make a direct cash or check donation.

 



Town Hall Meeting

TOWN HALL MEETING 

Sunday, October 15 Fellowship Hall 9:15am

What will life be like at First Pres when Cor Deo, our grade school,  moves to a new location?  What are we doing to make our campus more inviting as our neighborhood grows and changes?  These and other questions about improvements and use of our facility over the next couple of years will be the topic of our next Town Hall Meeting.  We hope that you can be there for this important conversation. We want to hear your thoughts and your questions.  

 



Pastor Eric to Speak in West Palm Beach

PASTOR ERIC TO SPEAK IN WEST PALM BEACH

Please pray for Pastor Jacobsen as he travels to West Palm Beach on Thursday to give a public lecture on “Walkability”.  
The lecture is sponsored by a number of civic groups in West Palm Beach.  An ECO church plant called Providencia http://providenciawpb.org/has been partnering with these groups to ‘seek the shalom’ of that area and is hoping to provide positive modeling of how the church can show love for their neighborhood.

 



Thanksgiving Food Baskets

THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS

Thanksgiving food baskets have been a ministry of this church for over fifty years. These “baskets” are actually large boxes filled with staples and fresh  produce and delivered to families in need throughout Pierce County.          

You can help by donating non-perishable food or making a cash donation for the purchase of turkeys and other fresh foods.  The need is great, and we’re thankful for God’s faithful provision for sending fifty or more boxes out each year.  If you know of a family in need, please talk to a deacon or contact the church office at 253-272-3286.   Thank you for supporting this ministry.

Resources on Apologetics

 
This Sunday (October 1), the FPC library display table will have books and resources on apologetics! If you have any questions about your faith or know someone who has questions, stop by and take a look at the books!
 
We will be highlighting books by Lee Strobel, Timothy Keller, Josh McDowell, Sean McDowell, John MacArthur, Francis Schaeffer, David Noebel, and many others. 
 
You can take a look at some of our Apologetics books in our online catalog here. Not all of them are catalogued yet, so you’ll have to stop by in person to see all the options.
 
We are located in Fellowship Hall and open before and after the service. We also have many other books and resources on marriage, parenting, and science as well as specific books for children, and youth. Don’t forget to take a look at our substantial fiction section and our array of DVDs and biographies!
 
Come stop by and see us on Sunday! If you have any questions or have a specific book or topic in mind, please email us here!
