Mission
February 2NDSAT
For our February 2NDSAT, we are delivering food to two different groups in need.
Hospitality House (http://www.hhhnashville.org/) is a medical housing facility in midtown Nashville for caregivers and/or ANY patient of ANY age dealing with ANY type of illness. For over 46 years they have been a “home away from home” and lodging, meals and supportive services to guests.  We'd like to show our support by providing a meal for 30 people.  The food doesn't need to be hot. We'll deliver the meal to Hospitality House that day.

Williamson Medical Center Covid-19 Nursing Night shift - The WMC Covid-19 unit has been extremely busy. We want to show our appreciation by providing coffee and a light meal so the nursing staff of 11 can quickly get a bite to eat while caring for those in our community.

Sign up here: https://bit.ly/feb2ndsat. We only have a few slots remaining. Please deliver your fully cooked items in a disposable dish to the church on Feb. 13th between 9am - 11am.

FPC Arboretum

The Tennessee Urban Forestry Council (TUFC) has awarded First Presbyterian Church Level 1 Arboretum status. This is recognition of the church having 180 trees representing 46 different species of trees on our grounds with each species identified.

The process of diversifying the tree species on our grounds started in 2009 with installation of the first Memorial Trees. It is important to recognize Dylan Raines' months of work in preparing the TUFC application for his Eagle Scout project. Each species had to be identified and properly labeled. Dylan raised considerable funds to pay the cost of labels and mulch. He organized a Scout work day bringing a large number of Boy Scouts to the church to mulch and prepare our grounds for the TUFC inspection.

We are excited to invite the community to visit our grounds throughout the week to experience all that we offer including the Arboretum, Rain Garden, Fish Pond, Prayer Wall, Labyrinth, Free Little Library, and Pavilion. Read more on our website here.
Ash Wednesday: February 17

We will have a livestream service starting at noon available for you to watch at any time. You may pick up ashes in the Courtyard beginning February 13 to self-administer at home.
At 2 PM, we will have an Outdoor Service in the Courtyard with the imposition of ashes.
From 3-6 PM, our pastors will be in the Courtyard with ashes to welcome individuals/families and share scripture and prayer while administering ashes.
Indoor Worship in the Sanctuary

Starting February 21, 2021, we will return to a modified in-person Worship Service at both 8:30 and 11 AM. Following COVID protocol, we will seat 24 family groups per service each week. Click here to sign up.

Sign up your family to attend worship and your preschool - lower elementary aged children will have the opportunity to join for a prayer walk, Bible story, and playground time. Katie Oldham is coordinating this modified version of Children’s Worship for leaders and helpers to offer for 8:30 and 11 services. Children will be expected to wear facial coverings and leaders will help them maintain social distance. This is an optional ministry and outer wear will be needed. The children will leave after the Time with the Young Church and be returned to the sanctuary before the end of the service. Contact Katie at k.oldham1994@gmail.com or 615-947-5044 for more information.
Wednesday Spirituality Centers
Each Wednesday, we will have a new activity in the tub outside the Sanctuary doors for families to experience together including the Outdoor Labyrinth, Prayer Wall, Pavilion and Grassy area, Koi Pond with benches, Arboretum Find and Seek (46 Species).

If you have a specific date you would like, sign up ASAP. Thank you for providing flowers each Sunday.
