ADULT MINISTRY

Our goal is to serve, support, and shepherd the adult groups formed according to interests, age, needs, or fellowship, working through the FPC Mission Statement, "To know Christ and make Him known."

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN: Coordinates and organizes monthly Elness Birthday Parties, FPC Women's Monthly Bible Study, Annual Women's Retreat, Fall & Spring Events, and PCUSA Birthday & Thank Offerings. The Coordinating Director is Vivien Huntley.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY:  Whether they are called Prayer Shawls or Peace Shawls, the shawl maker knits each shawl with prayers and blessings for the recipient. These shawls can be used for: undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after the loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marraige ceremonies; birthing, bridal shower or wedding gift; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others;...there are endless possibilities! Please join us as we gather to knit or crotchet a prayer shawl. We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at 9:30am in the Ivan Lowe room. Glenda Jameson is the coordinating elder.

 

BIG WEDNESDAY:  Join us as we sit down and eat food! Where we make room at the table! Where we forget our burdens and come unified as Body of Christ! Dinner is on Wednesdays at 5:30pm followed by Bible Study for all age groups at 6:30 pm. We also have special programs to honor and celebrate Veterans, Thanksgiving, and hold Tidings of Comfort and Hope Remembrance services. Our own Pastor Craig prepares the meals and leads the adult Bible studies.

LADY BELLES: This is our newest group to Adult Ministry. Anyone of any age is welcome.  We are a very relaxed group of individuals that sometimes does things on the spur of the moment like a mystery trip to the Jameson Brahman ranch to eat sack lunches and watch the calves cavort or go to Monterey Aquarium for the day. We usually meet twice a month for lunch or dessert and have road trips once a month. The Director and Elder of this committee is Glenda Jameson.

CHURCH GARDEN:  The church garden produces yummy tomatoes and peppers during the summer months and variety of pumpkins, eggplants, and vegetables throughout the fall to be enjoyed by the congregation and our BIG Wednesday Dinners. Cindy Peterson works diligently in maintaining and cultivating the production of the crops.

SECOND FRIDAY FELLOWSHIP GROUP:  We are made up of a great group of individuals who are inviting and welcome any newcomers. Our gatherings are hosted within our own midst, we take turns each month by coordinating and organizing a social event either at a restaurant or at home with good food and great games. Just as the title says, our fellowship group meets every second Friday of the month. We encourage everyone to join us for this wonderful time of getting to know one another in a very casual & comfortable setting. 

MEN'S COFFEE:  We meet every Wednesday morning at 9:00am for a time of Devotion, Donuts, Conversation!
