Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 18:18-20). One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. A variety of ministry opportunities entail:

Worship & Membership, including music, prayer, & adornments;

Christian Education; Outreach for Proclamation of the Gospel and Mission;

Benevolence Care, including hospitality; 

Finance & Stewardship, including giving of time and resources, and Facilities maintenance of church property. Let someone know how you want to serve Jesus at FPCP and listen for opportunities to serve that arise. Let’s joyfully work together for the good of Christ’s kingdom!

Partnering with God in Prayer

Prayer cannot be overestimated and should precede all else. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during worship, the intercessory team prays for the ministry of the Word. Every Wednesday, the team is together for a special time of prayer and study. Personal prayer appointments are offered as requested, as a part of pastoral care. A prayer list is published in the weekly bulletin and by email. All are encouraged to lift prayers for the pastor, church members, ministry needs, and special requests. Please join in prayer!

Christian Nurture & Care

To grow as disciples of Christ, we encourage the participation of all in christian education and care. We need teachers and helpers to  minister to children, youth, and adults in Sunday school and for other times. In addition, those who are unable to be present, temporarily or permanently, due to illness, impairment or for other reasons, need encouragement and mercy. Are you inclined to help in nurture or care?
