Celebrating Holy Week at FPC
We’ve been preparing the sanctuary for Palm Sunday. Join us for worship this weekend: inside the church, in the FPC parking lot, or on demand at myfoc.org!

Wake Up & Worship (for kids 4K through 6th grade) begins this Sunday, March 28 at 10am during the Palm Sunday worship service. If you would like your child to attend, you will need to sign up in advance. Spots are limited to 20 kids.

New this year for kids…the Easter Trail
For the first time at FPC, Children’s Ministry is offering the Easter Trail! You can experience the Easter story–from Palm Sunday to Jesus’ resurrection–in a whole new way. On Saturday, April 3rd between 11 and 12 your family will drive the Easter Trail and stop at multiple stations around the FPC parking lot for treats and the Easter story!
We are planning for around 75 kids to come through the trail. Want to help? Click here to purchase items from our Amazon wish list that we will use at this event. If you are interested in volunteering at one of the Easter story stations, use the sign up button below. We are looking forward to making this a great event for the kids, families, and volunteers!
