Viva L’Italia, Saturday, October 5 at 7:00: Our annual fund raiser to benefit our Congregational Oratorio Society concert series, is almost upon us. This will be a fun filled evening with a delicious dinner, singing waiters, wine, and more great music, all with an Italian theme. A few tickets are still available!

New Member Information Night: Are you interested in learning more about what it means to be a member of this church?  Join us on Wednesday, October 1 at 7:30 p.m. in Pastor David Howell’s office for a gathering with Dave and others interested in membership in the church.  For more information or to let us know you are coming, email David Howell.  

Sunday School Teachers for the School Year: Sunday School is one of the most important ministries of our church. Our faith formation program helps children learn the biblical and spiritual traditions of our faith, feel a sense of connection to church, and love God and their neighbors. If you would be willing to teach Sunday School during the months of September-May, please contact Eileen Altman.

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.
