The Little Apple Barbershop Chorus, from Manhattan, opened our worship service with two inspiring and uplifting songs on Sunday, August 13. Under the direction of Michael Brown, the group traveled to Wamego to sing at several area churches last Sunday as part of their summer tour.

The FPC congregation celebrated “Siete de Mayo” with a Mexican themed dinner on Sunday, May 7. A big “Thank You” goes to Lorinda and Bob Sultzer for preparing the delicious food and organizing the dinner, with a menu of enchiladas, soft and crunchy tacos, cheese queso dip and chips, and banana pudding and warm chocolate brownies. Additional thanks go to the Deacons and Youth for assisting with set up and clean up on Sunday.
In addition to the carnival activities and photo booth, kids were treated to an Easter Egg Hunt on the church lawn on Sunday before the 10:15 am worship service.
Easter morning activities at FPC for children included a bunny themed carnival! The activities began with a craft station where kids decorated a brightly colored foam cross. After craft time, they gathered in Old Fellowship Hall with youth helpers for carnival style games. Kids played Bunny Golf, Jelly Bean Toss, Basket Toss, Feed the Bunny, Duck Fishing Pond, Pin the Tail on the Bunny, Matching Game, and Carrot Toss. After the carnival games, everyone gathered for Bunny Bingo!
Families and kids of all ages enjoyed the Easter photo booth, as part of the children’s carnival activities on Easter Sunday.
