Dedication of New Paraments

Dedication of New Paraments

New paraments were chosen this year by the Memorial Committee and purchased with memorial funds. They were dedicated by Pastor Patti on November 13, with assistance from the children of the congregation.

The paraments adorn the sanctuary and change colors with each season. Purple will be used during Advent and Lent; White for Christmas and Easter; Red for Pentecost; Green for Epiphany and “common time”.

Join us and watch as the new paraments change with the church seasons!

14th Annual HollyFest was a success!

FPC’s annual HollyFest was held Saturday, Nov. 6. This was the 14th year for the crafts, vendors, and food fair, sponsored by the Wamego Presbyterian Women. This year’s fest held the record for the highest number of craft and vendor booths – 39! Delicious ham & beans, pulled pork sandwiches, and dozens of pieces of pie were available in the kitchen. Money raised from the fest will be used for various church projects and Christian education opportunities for women of the church. Make plans to join us again next year, on the first Saturday in November.

Deacon’s Luncheon, Sept. 11

The Deacons are now hosting a church-wide luncheon following worship service on the 2nd Sunday of each month. September’s menu included a Baked Potato Bar. The August menu included hot breakfast items.

Fellowship Dinner, which has been traditionally held on the last Wednesday of each month has been discontinued. The Deacons Luncheons have replaced that monthly event.

The next Deacon’s Luncheon is scheduled for October 9. Join us for food and fellowship!

Uno de Mayo Dinner

Instead of Cinco de Mayo, we celebrated “Uno de Mayo” after worship service on May 1!

Special thanks to Bob and Lorinda Sultzer for planning the event and preparing all the delicious Mexican food. Traditional favorites including enchiladas, tacos, rice, beans, quacamole, and queso were served buffet style. Kids from the Sunday School class helped with set-up and decorations. Middle and High School Youth also helped with set up and cooking, then stayed to assist with serving the food.

A free-will donation was collected during the meal, with the money going to youth programs within our church.
