Current Deacons’ Events…

Deacon of the Day

Every Sunday morning, a team of Deacons is on hand to greet worshippers, answer questions, and direct people to the appropriate areas of the church.

College Care Packages

To encourage our students, and let them know we are thinking of them here at FPCP, the Deacons send them gift cards for food and beverages. If you have a college student, please let us know his or her current address, even if they are living at home while attending classes!

If you would like to contribute to this project, you can make a monetary donation to FPCP Deacons and write “college care” on the memo line. If you have any questions, need more information, or need to update your student’s address, please contact Karen Thiele at 734-416-5305.

5th Sunday Donations

Due to their ever increasing events and costs pertaining to those events, every 5th Sunday is designated for a special (additional) collection for the Deacon Fund.
