Family Promise
National Giving Day 
Thursday, April 28, 2022
Family Promise Giving Day is a 24-hour campaign to raise awareness and support for families battling homelessness. We're asking family and friends to give an hour's worth of salary as a donation, and post this flyer to their page asking their family and friends to donate. We can all do our part by raising awareness about the crisis of family homelessness and play a significant role in ensuring families in need have a place to call home.

Usher Sign up
All are invited to serve as Ushers at FPC! One goal of our strategic plan is to equip the saints for ministry! Yes, that is you! Our hope is to have all members and active visitors participating in servant leadership through a variety of ministry opportunities!

What is an usher? An usher is a person who shares gifts of hospitality. Ushers are responsible for greeting worship attendees, passing out bulletins, collecting offering, etc. A current elder serves as the Usher chair ensuring all who have signed up to serve are well prepared. We need three ushers every Sunday. Being an usher is a great way to meet our church family!
If you are interested in signing up for a Sunday or two to be an usher click HERE for the direct link or call the office at 770-786-7321
