Back to School Blessing and reaching out to FPC Kids
At the outdoor service at 9am this Sunday we will pray over students and teachers as they begin a new, unprecedented school year. Families will receive backpack tags as a reminder of that blessing and that their FPC is praying for them!
Not planning to attend the outdoor service? There will also be a drive thru opportunity in the church parking lot this Sunday between 10 and 11am to pick up blessing tags and have your students prayed over in your car. Feel free to share this with your friends and neighbors. We want everyone to feel God’s love and know that our church family is praying for them as we begin this school year.
Also, Children’s Ministry recently mailed letters and a “Jesus loves you S’more” craft to 175 children in our program to let them know we miss them and invite them to join Wake Up and Worship beginning September 13 at the outdoor service and to promote upcoming virtual Sunday school. Watch the weekly Connector for the kick-off date of the virtual curriculum.
Where are you in your relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you hovering, sinking, or progressing? Paul says he has his eye on the goal–he has not attained everything in Christ, but he is “Pressing On”. Join us this weekend weekend for this message based on Philippians 3 either online or at our Sunday outside worship service at 9am!
