Events

WELCOME TO EVENTS at First Presbyterian Church. This is essentially a Calendar page that displays the meetings and activities at the church. “Agenda” will allow you to set your calendar by the day, week, or month. “Category” will allow you to customize your calendar to show events in your area of interest. By default, the Events page shows a calendar of “Upcoming Events,” which showcases activities at the church while excluding regular meetings and classes. Note: It will also include some “regular” meetings when a special event such as a speaker is scheduled. Choosing “All Activities” from the category menu will bring up the complete church schedule.

Rally Day @ Various, Fellowship Building
Sep 10 @ 8:30 am – 1:00 pm
Kicks off a new season of Christian Education. Includes a pancake breakfast at 9:45 AM. This year the theme for the first few weeks will be “An Open Door.” The Open Doors campaign asks: How can we be useful to God? It will help our church discover some answers. It’s a tool to empower and energize, to help us all recognize open doors, and to walk through them.  Join us this fall in finding an open door! (For more information on the Open Door campaign, click here to see the brochure.)

Other details of the event are still being worked out. Last year, after the pancake breakfast, there was a Spiritual Growth/Christian Education Fair in the Fellowship Hall. In a change from previous years, there was only one service on Rally Day, at 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary. The calendar currently shows two services for Rally Day this year.

Pool Party @ Home of Mike and Marcia Garrett
Sep 10 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

As part of Rally Day, church youth will head for the Garretts for a pool party. We’ll be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers. Parents are invited to send along drinks, a side dish, or dessert for the party. Time for this event or tentative, although it probably won’t be directly after Sunday church services. More details to come.
