This Week at FCCPA

Animal Blessing Sunday: On August 31, you are invited to bring your pets (on leash or in a carrier) with you to worship, and each will receive a special blessing.  We also welcome photos of animals that cannot be present and beloved stuffed animals for blessings. 

September 5 Breaking Bread Hot Meals Noon Meal Service:  Our next Breaking Bread Hot Meals service will be Friday, September 5.  If you are interested in joining a team that prepares and serves food for 75, please contact Alan Stivers. We work between 9 am and 1 pm, but if that is too long for you consider volunteering for just two hours.  We need the most help between 11 am and 1 pm.  Please look for the sign-up table this Sunday before and after worship.

FCCPA Artisans' Bazaar: We're looking for artists within the church community to display or sell their art and handicraft on Saturday & Sunday, November 1-2. To download information and registration: Bazaar Register Form.pdf.
