FPC MINISTRY UPDATES

Worship

This Sunday, we will have two worship services: 9 AM in the Sanctuary and 11 AM in King Hall. 

  

Communion will be Celebrated on May 19th

 The Sacrament of Communion will be celebrated at both services next Sunday, May 19.  May we use this week to prepare our hearts and minds to receive this gift of God rightly. We will remain in our seats while the Elders distribute the elements.

 

   

Haven Health Baby Bottle Boomerang

  BABY BOTTLE BOOMERANG: Haven Health is Rome and Floyd County’s free pregnancy medical clinic that has served thousands of women in our community since 1986. They offer pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, prenatal/parenting classes, and STD testing/treatment, all free of charge. Every spring, from Mother’s Day through Father’s Day, Haven Health Clinic distributes baby bottles through churches to be filled with cash, checks, and change. How will filling a bottle help? $18 will pay for a client to receive Life Affirming materials; $35 keeps the phone lines open for another day; $60 provides a pregnancy test and counseling for one client; $95 provides an ultrasound for one client; $125 provides parenting education for one client, and $195 ensures our doors are open for another day.

MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES ~ SERVE PROFILE

The Bible teaches us that all Christians were “created in Christ Jesus for good works” (Ephesians 2:10). Our church has created a Serve Profile that helps you discover how God has gifted you for His service and shows you potential areas of service in the church and community. This Serve Profile does not automatically sign you up to serve anywhere! It opens the door for a ministry leader to contact you and discuss ways you may feel called to serve FPC and our surrounding community when opportunities are presented. You may visit fpcrome.org/serve and click on the SERVE PROFILE button. It is accessible from all mobile devices and takes about 7 minutes to complete. If you prefer a paper copy, contact the church office at 706-291-6033.
