Sermon Series - Sunday Morning Worship

June - Christian, It May Not Be What You Think

Jesus said to Matthew the tax collector, “Follow Me.” What does it mean to follow? Our human tendency is to construct a system of regulations, rituals, and rules to dictate how we should follow. But, Jesus and his early disciples had a different concept of following. In June we will examine what Jesus and his disciples taught about following Jesus.

July - God is Indescribable

The chorus to Laura Story’s song Indescribable is “Indescribable, uncontainable, You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name. You are amazing God.” Through the lens of scripture, Laura Story’s powerful song will come alive and we will gain a deeper and more profound understanding of the God we serve.

Celebrating FPC's 180th Anniversary              

FPC is 180 years old! Our remarkable journey began in 1838. We have been at our present location since 1874. The sanctuary in which we worship was built in 1896. We have been, and will continue to be, a downtown church living and proclaiming God’s grace, mercy, and love.

A two-month celebration will begin on August 12 with an affirmation of our commitment to the Huntington community. It will conclude on October 14 with a declaration of God’s faithfulness. Our theme is “180 Years Strong - Faithful Then, Faithful Now, Faithful Forever.”

Invitations will be mailed out in early July. If you would like a family member or friend to receive an invitation, give us their address. It will be a wonderful two months of celebrating our history, heritage, and calling to ministry.
