Supporting the Ministries of FPC
It is never too late to commit to God’s plan and work at FPC for 2021. If you have haven’t pledged for 2021, please consider doing so. If you have previously pledged and feel called to increase your pledge based on the needs of FPC and the communities and world we serve, please consider an increase in giving. In this unprecedented pandemic and post-pandemic period, FPC’s Session will look to direct any material increases in giving to maximizing our Mission outreach and impact.
