Blessing of the Backpacks » Aug 19

Children and teachers are invited to bring their backpacks to worship on Sunday, August 19th (both services) for Pastor David's and Pastor Rosy's school year blessing.

Tools for School

Our annual drive as a part of the Network's Tools 4 School program has begun. You can participate again this year by donating assorted school items from July 15 to August 5.  Some of the supplies you donate will be reserved to give directly to our neighborhood schools, Terrace and Mark Twain, and to our First Friday children.

Look for wicker baskets with "Tools 4 School" affixed to them and pick up a shopping list postcard. They will be located in several places around the church facilities. If you are not able to shop, you can make a monetary donation, with checks written to FPC and "School Supplies" written on the memo line.

Feeding Children Everywhere

It is time to register for this annual event that will take place at the Richardson Civic Center - Sep 9, 12 noon to 5 pm. Register individually for specific time slots. FPCR is not registering groups this year - but we encourage you to sign up with friends!
 
The Mission Ministry at FPCR is sponsoring this at the $500 level, but additional donations may be made online or through the church office. Our overall goal is to supply 100,000 meals. Network of Community Ministries has indicated they could use all 100,000 meals. All donated funds go for food. Contact the church office for more information.

Network Golf Tournament

Join Network for its 21st Annual Golf Outing. In addition to enjoying a great day of golf, your participation provides basic needs assistance for families in crisis! Shotgun start is at 1:00pm on September 14th. The Golf Outing will feature fun individual and team challenges, a chance to bid in a silent auction benefiting Network, and a raffle full of exciting prizes. Contact Ralph Stannard or the church office for more information about being on the FPCR team.
