Disciple School - Reconnect. Recenter. TOGETHER

The Education ministry is excited to welcome our church family to Disciple School each night from Sunday, August 1-Wednesday, August 4, 5:00 - 7:00pm.

The Committee, along with the members of the Disciple School Planning Team, developed a program with the following question in mind: How can we "recenter" in God with our faith family?

They are a means of helping us grow in our relationship with God and with other followers of Jesus, continuing the process of transformation into disciples of Christ.

School Supply Collection

We are collecting school supplies for Condor Elementary. Items can be left in the white collection box, in the welcome area downstairs. Any of these items are appreciated. If you would like to donate a backpack stuffed with each of these items, that is most helpful for the school. Items needed are pencils, erasers, colored pencils, crayons, markers, pencil sharpeners, ear buds, spiral notebooks, composition books, pocket folders, glue sticks, scissors, highlighters, small bottles of hand sanitizer, blue and black pens, and backpacks. Contact Jodi Beckham with questions. Thank you!

Hearts and Hands Bazaar

October 30, 2021

With a three-fold purpose of allowing members to use their gifts and talents to Glorify of God, providing a fellowship opportunity for the congregation at large, and generating funds for benevolent giving to national and local missions, the Bazaar is a joint effort of Presbyterian Women, the Service and Benevolence Ministry, and the Care and Connections Ministry.

FLPC has many talented crafters, artists, bakers, cooks, and grill-masters who are invited to contribute to the event’s success. Do you know someone you can encourage to share their talents? Do you have something you can offer? Please register here if you plan to contribute to the Bazaar. Questions, contact Stuart Hunter at 803-413-0376 or mstuarthunter@gmail.com.

Lift Up Your Church Family Via Text

The Board of Deacons is happy to announce it is starting a new Texting Team. To “play” on this team is pretty easy – all you do is get a list of 10 or so names of FLPC members from Ed and send a text at your convenience to let the member(s) know you lifted them up in prayer that day. The concept is similar to the Note Writing Team, meaning you work at your own pace and get new lists whenever you’re ready.

For more information, or to join the Texting Team or the Note Writing Team, just email Ed: edblack@flpc.org.

The HOPE Team Needs You!

Need a little help with a home project? Want to help others in the FLPC community? The HOPE (Helping Other Presbyterians Every Day) Team is ready to serve and assist with small projects for our FLPC family.
