Fellowship!

Loads of opportunities to hang out and grow closer.

Sunday Worship is central to all we do at FPC – but there are many, many opportunities throughout the week for us to get to know each other (and share a laugh), too. A few of our regular gatherings include Book Club (typically the second Monday of every month), Moms’ Group (typically the second and fourth Wednesday mornings AND the second and fourth Thursday evening of every month), Prime Timers  luncheon (typically the third Thursday), Men’s Fellowship breakfast (typically the fourth Saturday), Women’s Fellowship breakfast (typically the third Saturday), and  Youth Group (typically every Sunday evening at 5:30 pm). There are multiple “special” gatherings every month, too – like the “20-, 30-, 40-somethings” and “Seasoned and Spirited” get-togethers, as well as our annual pumpkin carving, Christmas caroling, and Easter Egg dyeing events. There is, quite literally, something for everyone – and YOU are welcome! Please join in the fun as we celebrate God’s love and the community we share.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Meetings Year-Round

Alcoholics Anonymous has received FPC’s support for more than 40 years. The church provides meeting rooms and kitchen space for more than 20 weekly meetings as well as seasonal all-night meetings. FPC also offers space for weekly meetings of Al-Anon, a support group for friends and family members of problem drinkers.

Food Bank Donations

Monthly - 1st Sunday

The first Sunday of every month, FPC congregants are encouraged to bring food or hygiene items to donate to the Frederick Food Bank. Donations are down, and the number of Food Bank clients is rising—people are in need year-round. Please bring donations with you to worship.

Open Door

Wednesdays at 6:30pm, during the FCPS school year

For more than 30 years, FPC has partnered with our neighborhood school, Parkway Elementary, to provide a mentoring program for children in grades K-1. The Parkway community liaison selects children for the weekly program, which includes crafts and educational activities, story time, and a nutritious dinner. The longest-running program of its kind in Frederick County Public Schools, Open Door is an intergenerational celebration of learning and relationship in a happy, loving environment.

FPC Sunday School

Spiritual Exploration for All Ages

2019-20 School Year

The new Sunday School year kicks off on Sunday, September 15th, and continues through mid-June. Classes for children, teens, and adults meet at 9:30am on Sundays (one hour before Worship). All are welcome.
