Christmas Stories: A Story of Faith – Upper Room

On the 2nd Sunday in Advent, we heard from seminary student and FPCP member Rich Rej speak on the subject of Faith as it relates to Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus.  Joseph was what we would consider today to be a great guy: a just man, a skilled and honest craftsman, a solid citizen, […]

Grateful Together – Upper Room

Unity in Variety – Upper Room
