Advent 2018: The Song of Advent
Celebrate Advent with the FPC family as we reflect on the great promises of the gospel through our theme, The Song of Advent. In worship this season we will allow a selection of great and historic hymns and carols to guide our reflection and inspire our celebration. Each week you are invited to delve more deeply through the devotional materials distributed in service and available in the Devotion & Music section of this page.
We will also continue with our annual tradition of Advent activities. For a complete listing, see below.
