Summer at FPC

Join us this summer at fpc

The summer months frequently mean extended time away from Houston and, often, the brothers and sisters in Christ that we “do” life with. We miss you and you miss one another during this time. Highlighted below are a few of the ways you can maintain your daily walk and share in community despite summer schedules.

Summer Sermon Series

On Sunday, June 11, we kick off our summer sermon series. This is a two-part exploration of Psalm 23 that will carry us through August. During this time, we will reflect on two themes: God as our Shepherd and God as our Host.

To provide opportunities to dig deeper, regardless of your location, Equipping & Sending team and our Children & Family Ministry team have prepared devotional content that can be used individually, with your small group, and as conversation guides with little ones.

Printed copies will be available around campus beginning Sunday, June 11. Click below for a digital devotional.

Stay connected in worship

We will continue to offer three services each Sunday this summer.* Whether you are local and can join us in person, or traveling for the summer and participating online, there is a place for you in worship.

*Please note that July 13–16, FPC will gather for their annual retreat to Mo-Ranch. We will therefore have only one service at 11 AM on July 16.

All-Church Sunday School

Sundays | Aug 6-27 | 9:30 AM | Fellowship Hall

Join us each Sunday during the month of August for our annual All-Church Sunday School class as we discuss The Art of Neighboring. We will be applying what we’re learning in our sermon series Welcomed to the Table, with practical, hyperlocal implications. Since God welcomes us to His table, what does it mean to welcome others into our lives with open arms and hearts?
