Upcoming Ministry Opportunities

Our FPC Thriving Congregations Cohort is heading home from Montreat today!

They have been working on our next best steps as a thriving congregation. We will continue to foster one on one conversations with our church family. If you have not had a one on one with a thriving congregations cohort member and would like to have one contact Dan Walden. In the next few months, we will be hosting a Listening Campaign where we will intentionally gather "house meetings" with the intention of hearing one another's stories of how you came to FPC, imagining our hopes and dreams, and possible ways forward for our congregation. If you have any questions about this initiative please reach out to our cohort members: Debra Arnold, Amy Fraser, Pat Harper, Jay Lanners, John McCarthy, Theodosia Wade, and Dan Walden.
