Help us create the first FPC Advent Devotion booklet! We need volunteers to choose an assigned scripture passage and write a short reflection on its meaning for Advent. We are also looking for artists (of all ages) to submit artwork inspired by the Advent season to adorn our booklet. Rev. Amy will be in the Fellowship Hall after worship with a poster for sign ups and more details about the scripture passages and how to help with this all-church project. In the end, all of us will have a copy of a booklet of devotions to read each day in Advent to inspire our preparation for the coming of Jesus this Christmas!
CPR/AED Training/Certification: The Deacons are looking to gauge interest for hosting another set of classes for CPR/AED training/certification. The classes are approximately three hours and typically held at FPC. The cost of the certification is approximately $60 per person. The training is great for all ages, and it is a skill that is quite literally life altering. If you are interested in obtaining your certification, please contact the church office. The classes will be scheduled once we confirm enough interest.
Do you have a 3 to 5 minute Children's Message you'd like to share with the little ones on a Sunday morning in worship? Rev. Amy is looking for people to help lead this part of the Sunday worship service on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of the month. Please sign up for a date(s) that works for you.
Are you interested in helping us make a church directory a reality? Join us on Tuesday, October 29, at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish House; we will be meeting with a representative of Lifetouch to explore our options.
The Women’s Association’s fall mission project is assisting our community partner, Family Promise, with stocking their supply closet with needed hygiene products. We invite the congregation to fill the marked basket in the library with some of the following items (please provide full sizes): shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, body wash, hair conditioner and razors. There is always a need for gift cards: ShopRite, Walmart or gas cards. Please put gift cards in an envelope marked “Women’s Association” and hand them to a member of the Women’s Association or bring them to the church office. Do not put gift cards in the basket in the library. Thank you for your generous gifts to assist in this mission project. Items will be collected until December 8.
Veterans Flag Dedications This year, we will again honor our veterans by dedicating flags that will line the church property from November 3-17. If you would like to dedicate a flag, fill out a dedication form and return it after church to the Fellowship Committee table in Fellowship Hall. If you would like to help members of the Fellowship team set up the flags, please contact the church office at 908-782-3227 or email email@example.com.
Book Talk: So You Want to Talk About Race: Our next Wednesday morning discussion of the NY Times best-selling book So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo with members of the Flemington Presbyterian Church and the Flemington Jewish Community Center is at FJCC on Wednesday, October 23, at 10:00 a.m.
Ongoing Opportunities for Engagement
We have many ongoing opportunities to get involved at FPC: youth events, ushers, lay readers, coffee hour hosts, committee participation, bell choir Shop Rite cards, flower dedications, and more. Details are available on our Ways to Engage page. We encourage you to jump in! No experience or long-term commitment necessary.
To hear the service more clearly, you are invited to use one of the church’s personal radio receivers. Inquire from an usher.
Large print materials for worship are available on the first pew at the front of the sanctuary near the East Main Street entrance. These materials include bibles, hymnals, and bulletins.
Announcements for the Sunday bulletin, weekly e-newsletter, and website are due to the office by noon on Wednesdays. Please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Per Capita: FPC will pay 2019 Per Capita of $34.50 per member, as determined by our General Assembly, Synod, and Presbytery. All PC(USA) churches pay per capita to share the expenses of those governing councils. The church will pay $69.00 for two members in your family/household, $103.50 for three members, etc. Your contribution to cover your household’s portion of this assessment would be greatly appreciated.
