High School Youth Conference

Our high school youth will attend the Montreat Youth Conference this week for a week of group and spiritual formation.

Sign up for Realm

All members should have received an invitation to sign up for online access to our new database. You’ll be able to access an online directory, upload your picture, and access your giving information. Email with questions. If you do not see an invitation, you can sign up at with the email you use for church correspondence.

Summer Giving

As folks travel for the summer, it’s not unusual to see a dip in giving. But the church’s doors remain open, and our ministries continue, and we continue to help people in need throughout our community. We hope you will remember FPC over the dog days of summer! As always, thank you for your ongoing and generous support.

Summer Worship and Punch on the Patio

Our summer worship and Punch on the Patio will continue through Labor Day weekend. We will worship as one at 10am and alternate worship spaces. You’ll find the worship schedule and Punch on the Patio sign-up and details on our website. We will have Punch on the Patio on the weeks when volunteers sign up. Hosting a Punch on the Patio is a great way to get to know your church family.

Summer Saints

Richard and Heather will lead an adult class Sunday mornings from 9-9:45am in the parlor this summer on Barbara Brown Taylor’s An Altar in the World. Reading the book is not required, and all are welcome at any time. The class will resume this Sunday after the holiday break.

FPC Book Club

We will meet again on August 29 to discuss Peace Like A River by Leif Enger. Grab a copy this summer and make plans to join us!

YMCA Yoga at FPC

The Hickory YMCA is undergoing major construction and began holding yoga classes in our high school room last week. They have graciously offered free classes to our members age 13 and above while they are using our space. Click here for the latest schedule.

Blessing Box

Our middle school youth have constructed a Blessing Box (with the help of Adam Oakley) beside the parking lot on 3rd Avenue. Help us keep this box filled with items to help those in need. Gently used clothing and non-perishable food items are recommended.
