Singing while we hike…
Cherith and Doug Brown’s daughter, loved the song What Can I Do? from last Sunday’s online service so much that she sang it over and over on an entire hike with her family. Thanks, Cherith, for sharing this cute moment with your FPC family!
Have we learned the secret of contentment? For most of us, the answer is no. In Philippians 4, Paul said he had discovered it, “I have learned, in whatever state I am in, to be content.” Join us this weekend for this message online or at the Sunday outdoor worship at 10:45.
It’s Pastor Appreciation Month
FPC is blessed with pastors who care deeply about their flock and work tirelessly and with great creativity, day after day, to ensure our spirits are cared for and fed. Let’s all take some time to notice and encourage Pastors Kirk and Ben and send a note or email, make a phone call—or choose whatever means you prefer to express your thanks.
“And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you along in your obedience. Overwhelm them with appreciation and love.”1 Thess. 5:12-13, The Message

Women’s Bible Study
The focus of the women’s fall Bible Study will be drawing closer to God and the book of James. The study is built around a 6 part video series by Kim Cash Tate called Cling. We will meet virtually every other Thursday from 7-8pm October 22 through December 17.

A festive night for MOPS
On October 13, the MOPS ladies met in the Outdoor Family Space for an outdoor painting pumpkin project, they talked about Jesus and His vision for justice in the world and how to teach our kids to have Jesus’ same love for others.
