A Note of Thanks
  • From Dennis and Judy Hooten: Dennis and I would like to share our thanks with our FPC family for the prayers, cards, calls, and love shown to us during the loss of our beloved friends, Sandra and Fred Christian. The shock and sudden loss reminds us to show love and thanksgiving every single day and would encourage you to do the same. We miss seeing our friends in the pews each week, but absolutely felt the love of our church family these past few weeks. We ask that you would continue to pray for their children, Lori and Todd, and their family as they navigate the days ahead.
