FPC Class of 2019

June 6, 2019



This past Sunday was Graduation Sunday at our church.  We had 6 high school graduates recognized and 5 college graduates recognized.  Our high school graduates were an extraordinary group of young men and women who have bright futures ahead of them.  These seniors were extremely involved in church events and together had a class total of 1,078 total service hours.  1,078 HOURS FOLKS!!  Thank you to everyone who helped encourage, empower, and love these seniors.  God speed to all of our seniors.  May God continue to bless and keep you and bless your next adventure!
