A Place to Experience, Explore, and Express the Love of God

FPC Honors Family Promise at our Express Lunch!

Express Lunch is not a short, hurried lunch as it may sound.  Instead it is a way to show how we at FPC express the love of God!  May’s lunch will be held May 4th in order for all to enjoy Mother’s Day (May 11th) with their families.  Our focus this month will be, Family Promise.

Family Promise of Acadiana has beenone our ministry partners for many years. This Sunday we will celebrate the work they do to keep families intact during periods of homelessness and financial strain. They produce amazing results. Here are some statistics from 2004-20012:

• Families served - 86
• Children served - 178
• Graduated into permanent housing - 86%
• Employment rate - 92%
• Unable to enter another shelter - 44%
• Volunteers - 400

Join us after worship for a delicious meal, a word from one of their volunteers, and the presentation of a special gift to support and honor their ministry.
