1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 9:15-11:30 AM

Starting September 4th

At First Presbyterian Church (701 Beach Drive NE), in the Youth Center

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) has been meeting at our church for over 10 years! This worldwide ministry partners with local churches on a mission to encourage and equip moms of young children to realize their potential as mothers, women, and leaders, in relationship with Jesus. The MOPS program provides 16 lessons for the months of September-May and has a leadership team that leads the discussions, manages membership fees, hospitality, communication, and creative activities.

The FPC MOPS group meets on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday morning of each month from 9:15-11:30 AM in the Youth Center. There are usually about 25 moms who attend. Each year has different group of moms as the children grow up! Many of these moms have children in our Day School and Mothers Mornings Out programs, but ALL are welcome!

If you are currently a mom with a preschooler, please consider joining this wonderful group of women! If you would like to help support the MOPS ministry at FPC, here are some ways to participate:

  • Rock a baby during the meeting times.

  • Donate money to pay for childcare (provided by our Childcare Ministry) so moms with financial hardships can attend.

  • Donate diapers and/or baby wipes.

  • Be a mentor to moms by coming to meeting and visiting with them.

  • Pray for these moms and their family’s spiritual growth.

Priscilla Shirer Bible Study - Breathe

Priscilla Shirer Bible Study - Breathe

  • First Presbyterian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The FPC Women’s Tuesday Bible Study invites you to a new study beginning November 5th entitled “Breathe - Making Room for Sabbath” by Priscilla Shirer. One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. The Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Dates: November 5 - December 3, 2019

Tuesday morning: 9:15 - 11:30 A.M. (Youth Center) OR
Tuesday evening: 6:30 - 8:45 P.M. (Youth Center)

Study journals will be available for $15. No previous Bible study experience is needed. Bring a friend!

Free childcare is available by reservation (email childcare@fpc-stpete.org or call 727-828-3971).

Questions? Contact April Hussung (727-420-1758, stapler39@aolcom) or Susan Schoenberg (727-560-2892, susansch@tampabay.rr.com).

Love Wins Bible Study
Jun
12
to Jul 31

Love Wins Bible Study

  • First Presbyterian Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In the book “Love Wins,” Rob Bell boldly wrestles with questions that Christians have asked – and feared – throughout the ages:

  • Who will be saved?

  • What do we have to do to be saved?

  • Will we see all the people we’ve ever loved when we go to heaven, or will some of them not make it there?

  • How can heaven be a joyous place for us if those we love are in “the other place?”

Come and consider questions about the Good News, the really, really Good News of the salvation that Christ offers.

Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in Room N123 starting June 12 and running for 8 weeks.

For more information, contact Rev. Ruth Elswood (727-822-2031, relswood@fpc-stpete.org).

Please bring a copy of the book with you. Amazon has the paperback for around $12.
