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.

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.
