Tuesday, January 16 – FPC’s monthly kingdom-centered prayer meeting will be meeting in room 401 of the church building. We gather at 7:30pm, and go into prayer from 8:00 to 9:15. All are welcome, but we ask that you do your best to arrive before 8:00 so that we may enjoy uninterrupted prayer time.
Sunday, January 21 – Town hall meeting and luncheon (1:00-3:00pm, room 702, 261 Roosevelt Rd. building). We want to gather our congregation, both members and regular attendees, for a family-style gathering over food, conversation, and a presentation on the part of the elders where they share their vision for the coming year. It will also include the rationale for the staffing of the church during an interim time while the search committee seeks a new pastor. This will also include any questions the congregation may have on anything—the proposed vision, the budget, anything. Be sure to join us for this family meeting!
Sunday, January 28 – Congregational meeting to approve the proposed budget (1:00-3:00pm, room 602, 261 Roosevelt Rd. building). This brief meeting will be an opportunity for members to vote on the new budget. The main discussion on the budget will have taken place the week prior.
