FPC Welcomes Eric Wowoh

Eric Wowoh is the Executive Director of Change Agent Network, a local non-profit that seeks to "develop and nourish a global network of like-minded individuals and organizations committed to facilitating positive change in our world."

Presently the C.A.N. is working to combat Ebola in Liberia, although they have previously worked to distribute used computers as a means of developing and supporting schools in Liberia.

PEACE AND GLOBAL OUTREACH

FPC Supports Efforts to combat Ebola in Liberea as an expression of Peace and Global Outreach on World Communion Sunday!

World Communion Sunday is a tradition begun by the PC(USA) and adopted by the National Council of Churches to encourage our experience of being the body of Christ together and members of it individually. It is traditionally celebrated on the first Sunday in October. That is also the day we collect the Peace and Global Witness offering. A portion of this offering is combined accross the PC(USA) to support local and global initiatives of peacemaking. FPC will retain 25% of what we collect and will use it to support the Change Agent Network's efforts of collecting and distributing supplies to combat the Ebola virus in Liberea.

Emersion Pool Parties!

We've recently had a few families join with children that were never baptized. What a blessing! Although we typically baptize infants based on the promises of their parents to raise them in the Christian faith and the belief that God chooses to love us before we choose to love God, this will give us a chance to think about baptism as it relates to being a part of a community of believers in Jesus.

So, for the last three Thursdays in June, we are having "Emersion Pool Parties" at the Rachal's house! We'll consider who God is, what our relationship with God is all about, and how baptism begins a lifelong journey of faith while we play, eat, and swim! Call the church (234-5182) for details.
