THANK YOU!

On behalf of the congregation, officers, and staff at FPC, we want to thank all of you who responded prayerfully and so generously on Commitment Sunday. It was encouraging to see the hundreds of people coming forward and making their financial commitments to fund our ministries. If you have not yet had the opportunity to turn in your commitment card, we would greatly appreciate your doing so. Cards are available in the literature racks, the pew racks in the Sanctuary, and the back table in Fellowship Hall. Again, we deeply appreciate your commitment to our church.
