Friends on a Hike
FPC members, Sandy Healy, Diane Rehm, and Anne Frihart recently enjoyed a fun hike at Devil’s Lake. They made their way to the peak and then down the Potholes path. Sandy Healy commented about their outing, “As my favorite song states… One step He leads and one step I follow.” Thanks for sharing this moment, ladies!

Video Devotional: The Revelation to John
Rev. Jeff Quinto, Executive Director of The Bethel Series and FPC member, reflects on spending time preparing for his recent Bethel Series Online class, New Testament 20 – The Revelation. He explains that “As with all the Bethel Series lessons, I learn so much each time I take it or teach it. As I prepare for each lesson, I see things I had not noticed or understood before. The Revelation to John is a message of hope for Christians in the 1st Century and the 21st.” Enjoy this inspiring devotion and consider joining the email list to be notified of new devotions at www.BethelSeries.org.
