FPC News and Announcements

Books and Resources on Marriage

This Sunday (February 9), the FPC Library will be displaying books and resources on marriage, dating, and similar topics! We have books for people who are already married, people who are dating, people who are single, and everything in between.
We have books by Timothy Keller, Gary Smalley, Les and Leslie Parrott, Jim Smoke, Tim Evans, and many more. Our books on marriage can be found our online catalog here. All of our books are catalogued, but not all of them are tagged according to what subject they cover, so they may not all show up in the search. If you are looking for a specific book on marriage, try searching for that book and ask the librarian about it on Sunday. Stop by in person to see our whole collection!
The FPC Library is located in Fellowship Hall and open before and after the service on Sunday mornings. You can contact us by email here.

Daniel Perrin’s “Taken Generation” to be Presented Feb. 10 in Issaquah

For many years, FPC Minister of Worship Dr. Daniel Perrin has been working on a powerful musical titled Taken Generation, which is set in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. On Monday, February 10, the musical will be presented as a staged reading at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 22116 SE 51st Place, Issaquah, at 7:30 pm. FPC members and friends are invited to attend this special free event.

Taken Generation tells the story of three friends who grew up together in pre-World War II, Warsaw. When the country is subjugated and a ghetto created for the Jews, the friends find a way to survive while resisting the Nazis. Adam is the son of a Rabbi, Marek is a priest, and Rachel is an entertainer at The Cabaret, a nightclub within the ghetto walls.

The reading is professionally directed and acted. Due to subject matter, a PG rating is appropriate. This is a free event and open to the public. If you need more information, contact jwest@fpctacoma.org.
