Guest Preacher, George Slaton
This Sunday, January 27th we welcome the Rev. George Slaton to the pulpit. George grew up in Concord where he and his family were active members of First Presbyterian Church. He attended what is now Union Presbyterian Seminary and graduated from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. After serving churches in Florida and Tennessee, he completed a residency in pastoral psychotherapy in Atlanta GA. He served at Presbyterian Counseling Center in Wilmington NC from 1980 to 2010 where he was therapist and Executive Director. George is an honorably retired member of Charlotte Presbytery and works with its Conciliation Team.

Opportunity House Needs Women's Undergarments

Now in existence for almost ten years, Opportunity House offers support for the disadvantaged in our community. In order to meet our mission, we rely on the generosity of individuals, churches, and businesses alike. Without the support of community-minded individuals like yourselves, we would not be able to continue our work serving the homeless, the unemployed, and the under-employed in our community each year.

Currently, Opportunity House is in need of women’s underwear, in all sizes. If you wish to help, the need is for sizes 5, 6, and 7 in bikini style, and for sizes 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 in brief style, both styles in any fabric and any color. If you drop your items off in Fellowship House we will see that they get delivered. 
Thanks to all the members of First Presbyterian Church for your continuing support of Opportunity House.
Confirmation for 8th Grade Students
A Confirmation informational meeting for all 8th graders and their parents will be held on February 3rd, during the Sunday school hour (9:45-10:45) in the Library Conference room of the Education Building. This meeting will be a time to learn about the Confirmation journey at FPC and to ask questions. Mark your calendars and come join us! If you know you will be unable to attend, but would like your child to go through Confirmation, please contact Rachel as soon as possible.
