Thanksgiving Eve Service and Pie Fellowship - Wednesday, November 25, 7:00 pm
The traditional Thanksgiving Eve Service and Pie Fellowship begins at 7:00 pm on November 25, the Wednesday night
before Thanksgiving. The Cherub and Youth Choirs will provide music leadership. A sharing of homemade pies at a
fellowship get-together after the service is sure to get the Thanksgiving
holiday off to a sweet start. The evening is a
great time for the church family to recount blessings and give thanks to God.
Bake your favorite pie and bring it to church
on Thanksgiving Eve (you may drop off the pie earlier in the day, or before
attending the service). This is a special time
to worship and thank God for the abundant blessings received throughout the year.
FPC Provides Local
Giving Opportunity for Giving
Tuesday on December 1!
What is Giving Tuesday?
The Giving Tuesday concept originated
nationally three years ago as a response to
consumerism – Black Friday & Cyber Monday.
Now Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving
that inspires charitable giving during the holiday
season. First Presbyterian is offering a local
giving opportunity as part of Giving Tuesday
(December 1) through social media promotion.
Share the good news and all the good things
happening at Davenport’s heart of the city –
