Community Activities

Get to know the people of FPC by participating in these fun activities. Some of them benefit the church financially, some of them reach out to the wider community, and all of them help forge connections and friendships!

  • Fall Harvest Fair – A tradition of many years, our annual Harvest Fair includes lunch, children’s games, crafts and edible treats, rummage sale and entertainment. For more information about the Harvest Fair, contact

  • Annual Auction – A spring social and fundraising event for the whole community. For more information about our auction, contact

  • Retreat – We go on a church-wide at Ferry Beach in the spring, for relaxation, recharge, and getting to know each other better and enjoy each other’s company in a different setting. For more information about our Ferry Beach Retreat, email
