Fellowship is an important part of who we are as a church family. To grow our connections here at First Presbyterian Church, we will start small group Fellowship Feasts, similar to the previous Four by Four groups.

If you are interested, you will be grouped with about 8 individuals (a mix of couples and singles) and encouraged to gather in fellowship four times over a period of six months. The nature and location of your gathering is completely up to you—pizza and football, a formal dinner at someone’s home, bowling, etc. The hope is that by being introduced to a new small group of church members we may strengthen our ties to one another and grow in faith and fellowship.

If you are interested in joining a Fellowship Feasts group, please sign up online or email Mary Margaret Porter.

This winter, watch for First Fellowship gatherings, opportunities for First Pres members and friends to gather for fun and fellowship both within the walls of the church and beyond. Among these opportunities will be neighborhood/area gatherings in church members’ homes. The church will help with logistics and other support, but we need hospitable hosts. If you are interested in hosting a gathering in your home anytime between now and May, or have other ideas for fellowship, please contact the Reverend Mary Margaret Porter. Fellowship is an important part of  Congregational Care. The time and consideration we provide one another is vital to keeping this church vibrant and nourished to continue to be for Christ in the Heart of Charlotte

Drop into Wood Fellowship Hall on Sunday, January 7—and every Sunday after that—to gather with your First Presbyterian church family when you leave the 9 a.m. service, as you head to Formation classes and as you arrive for the 11 a.m. worship service.

This new gathering place will offer plenty of room for all as we permanently move our traditional Sunday morning gathering place to Wood Fellowship Hall for fellowship, for coffee, for signups and information about special events and activities.

On our first day in the new gathering place, you’ll be able to:

  • Express your opinion during a coffee tasting to select the coffee we’ll serve at church events in 2018.
  • Purchase early-bird tickets to the 2018 Willard Lecture before they go on sale to the public the next day;
  • Learn more about the Congregational Breakfast on Sunday, February 25 and the mission trip to Haiti in early February;
  • Welcome visitors and newcomers when First, Coffee moves to this space, so you can be one of the first to welcome visitors and newcomers;
  • Read the headline news about what’s happening at the church in the days ahead, a new communications tool which will debut that day.

We hope everyone will enjoy life together in this new space, whether you are on the way to Formation, dropping in for coffee or looking for opportunities to get involved in the life of the church.

You can be part of a fun Ministry Team this summer by spending a little bit of time after worship pouring and greeting during Lemonade on the Lawn.

Lemonade on the Lawn is a great way for all ages to serve and to get to know others. If you would like to help serve one Sunday, please contact Sarah Price or sign up online.
