Serve

Join a Team!  Serve/Volunteer with a Team!

We believe that God gives gifts (some might call them talents or skills) to each individual to use as we live in community, helping and supporting one another.  At FPC there are many ways to connect, use your gifts, and fulfill a purpose – if you laugh, cry, love, or worship along the way we won’t be surprised!
