FPCE has partnered with Mars Home for Youth when collecting donations for the annual Manger Tree drive. MHY Family Services is a non-profit organization serving youth with intensive behavioral needs and social challenges, and providing them a safe environment on their journey to wellness. Our own Jim and Lisa Segedy are active with MHY as volunteers and members of the board of directors. A list of needed items and ways to donate can be found below. Donations must be received by December 5 so the volunteers and staff can organize
and distribute accordingly.
PLANNING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!
Do you consider FPCE your home?
If so, we want to hear from you!
Our church has entered into a time of discernment during which we are gathering information to guide our decisions for our future. Recently, you may have heard or read about one aspect of this process: The Church Assessment Tool (CAT). This instrument will help us gauge the strength, vitality, and trends in our church as we make decisions moving forward. Your response is very important to us.
By November 30th, we are asking you to tell us about your experiences in and priorities for our church.
All answers are strictly anonymous. We have no way of matching any assessment to a particular person, so please feel free to candidly share your perceptions, opinions, and experiences. The assessment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please set aside enough time to complete the survey all at one time. Our future together is dependent on your participation and honest answers.
NOTE: If there is only one email address for all members of your household, it may be tempting to have one person take the survey on behalf of the family. However, please be sure your spouse and all young adults living in your home have an opportunity to complete the survey. INDIVIDUAL INPUT is key to our gaining insight into overall perceptions and experiences.
When you are ready, click on this link and begin. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FPCEPPA
If you need a paper copy, please see Judy in the church office.
If you have questions, please reach out. I would be happy to help.
Thank you for your willingness to be a part of this congregational assessment and for helping to build FPCE’s future.
PS. I have fun cat pins for all who complete the survey available in my Study. Once you complete the survey, please see me. Cat pins are on a first-come, first served basis. I can't reserve the cute ones for you.
We have so many talented local artists in our area. Please join us as we put some of their artwork on display for purchase or just perusal. There will be art in many styles and formats, something for everyone to enjoy.
Maybe you’ve never stepped into our beautiful neighborhood church. This is you opportunity to check out the beautiful window from the inside, or talk with their docent to get the history of their sanctuary carvings, paintings and window design.
Snack and beverages will be served. This is a no cost event. Just stop by and enjoy.
Our monthly free meals on the first Wednesday continues into the fall with a free pasta dinner hosted by the Board of Deacons. Join friends and neighbors in the social room on Wednesday, November 1 from 6-8pm for food and fellowship!
