Spring Clean-Up Day
Volunteers Needed Saturday, March 21. Every spring the FPC Trustees prepare the church and grounds for Easter. This year we will clean the Courtyard, the exterior of the Z-W House, and especially the Sanctuary.
- Exterior clean-up begins 9:00 am
- Sanctuary clean-up begins 12:30 pm (after the choir rehearsal)
- LUNCH PROVIDED with RSVP to Linda Hanifin Bonner
Since we have members and staff in walking distance to the church, we will be open for ALL worship services. You are invited to use common sense; if it is risky to get out – stay home – if travel is safe, we’d love to welcome you. This goes for choir members, Sunday school teachers and worship leaders as well. If the weather is really fierce, we will simply adjust according to who is able to be present. Thank you.
