Sermon,This Sunday, September 27th
Pastor Matt's sermon "Turn, Then, and Live" is based on Ezekiel 18:1-4, 25-32 with an additonal reading from Matthew 21:23-32. God announces a new way through the prophet--a way of grace and of life. The response of the people is not what we expect: "It's not fair!" they say. But who are they (or we) to challenge God about such things? God's response is an invitation to new life, one that is accessible through repentance and fulfilled by God's grace.
The worship service will be online at fpcpa.org/eworship, and closed captions are available.
A congregational meeting has been called for Sunday, October 11, at 9:30 am via Zoom. The purpose of the meeting is to elect Iantha Frazer and Diane Zimmer to serve as elders in the class of 2022 and to fill a vacancy in the elder class of 2023.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Our shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child will be built online this year. Watch for more detailed information on how to order your shoebox in the October Highlights coming out next week. We'll also include an option for those whom on-line giving is not an option. We'll give you directions about how to do that so boxes can be ordered for you and be included in our total.
It may be even more important than ever this year for needy children around the world to receive these tangible demonstrations of God's love for them, so we're glad there is a way for us to do this.
