Hey FPC Family – WE NEED YOU!!!
 
Have you ever wondered how you can get involved in service at First Presbyterian,
but does the idea make you nervous because you think you might not be qualified?
We say “NO WAY!” We would love to have you be a part of the life of the church!! We just need you to be willing to volunteer!
We will train you and prepare you for your role. We promise you will get more out of volunteering for your church
than you could ever imagine!
 
We need:
Welcome Center volunteers before and after service 
Children’s Ministry Volunteer on Wednesday afternoons – multiple opportunities
Laptop Operator for Crossroads service 
 
Both of these opportunities are easy and fun! And, we’ll train you!!
 
Contact Andrea Siebold: asiebold@fpchhi.org or 843-415-2211 for more information.

“The Story” will be sold Sunday mornings in the Gathering Space beginning August 18 for $5.
Parents that buy the book will receive a corresponding book for their children for free.

God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what “The Story” is all about: the story of the Bible
condensed into 31 accessible chapters, “The Story” sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events,
it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.

How can you participate? First and foremost, READ ALONG! Even if you don’t attend a Sunday school class,
we will be engaging the texts and themes in worship, as well using a new Narrative Lectionary of the Old Testament.

There is a study for every age group:

Blessing of the Backpacks
Sunday August 25th during 11:00 A.M. Worship for a Blessing of the Backpacks.
 
 
It’s August … which means it is time for the back to school frenzy. Let’s take a moment together, to stop and
pray for all that is to come this year, for all the opportunity that new beginnings provide, for teachers, for students,
for support personnel, and for all the mentors and leaders that will come into our students lives this year.
 
Bring your Backpack and Join Us!
