I'm holding off on the Calendar page until we get a working Google calendar system on this page. This is planned, but not yet implemented. Meanwhile everything should be on the announcements page.

FIRST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH — Pioneer Home Ministry
As a church, on the first Thursday of each month, we go to the Anchorage Pioneer Home to conduct a service of singing hymns, a message, and communion. If you would like to join us in this ministry, please come to the Pioneer Home at 9:30 a.m. It is located at 923 West 11th Ave, Anchorage, AK 99501. For more information, please contact the church office at 272-6411.


FIRST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTHCommunion
On the first Sunday of each month we usually serve communion. This may change, depending upon circumstances. We usually serve by intinction, where each person takes a piece of bread and dips it in the communal cup. We also serve only gluten-free bread.


SECOND SUNDAY OF EACH MONTHSermon Talkback
Please join us for a Sermon Talkback time on the second Sunday of every month, March-May, in the church library. Feel free to bring a snakc to share if you can. If you can't, just bring your questions and comments. This is an opportunity to discuss the sermons from the past month with Pastor Matt, as well as ask questions and go into issues raised more deeply.


EVERY MONDAY NIGHT — Emergency Cold Weather Shelter
Every Monday night from October to the end of April, we operate the Emergency Cold Weather Shelter at FPC. We provide accommodation, food, warmth and safety to homeless families that have nowhere else to stay. These families are referred to us by AWAIC. On a very few nights, no-one needs the shelter; but we have housed up to 18 people on some nights.

A team of three or four volunteers from FPC stays the night. In addition, other volunteers provide food, do laundry, and provide other much-needed support. If you would like to be involved, please contact the church office at 272-6411.


​FOURTH SUNDAY OF THE MONTHF.I.S.H. Sunday
On the fourth Sunday of each month, FPC bags rice and oatmeal for F.I.S.H., and brings pasta to donate to the agency. Our goal is to donate at least 60 pounds of pasta each month. Bring your pasta and plan to help with the bagging of rice and oatmeal following worship in the Fellowship Hall. F.I.S.H. (Fellowship In Serving Humanity) delivers emergency food aid to people in need in Anchorage; responding to a call for help through a network of volunteers.
