Prayer Vigil at FPC – Sunday, April 27, 7:30 pm, Kirkwood Bouveland
Join with fellow Christians from our PUNCH churches for a Prayer Vigil on the
south side of
the church, along Kirkwood Boulevard. We will pray for people in our country, and for families
and friends who are victims of gun violence. Prayer vigils will continue at FPC through 2014
on the last Sunday of every month. Let us pray for God’s healing for victims, and let us bear
witness to the senseless violence in our country. For more information contact
Miller (563-326-1691, ext. 204 or firstname.lastname@example.org).

Friends for the Journey through Grief - Wednesday, April 23, 6:00 pm, in the Parlor
All of us, at some point in our lives, will experience loss. Whether it’s the loss of someone we love through death, separation
or divorce, the loss of a job or way of life, or the loss of our health, loss
brings with it grief. If you’re struggling with loss and
grief, you are invited to join with friends who are also struggling, that we
might share our sorrow, strength and hope with one
another. We will gather in the church parlor Wednesday, April 23 at 6:00 pm, and we plan to meet every other week. If you
have questions, please contact Pastor Kristy Parker (563-590-3071).

The Children’s Pageant: “A Look To the Past For Our Future At Last”
Old-fashioned Ice Cream Social - Sunday, May 4, 2:15-4:00 pm
This very special children’s pageant, highlighting the history of First Presbyterian Church, will be
sure to be one to remember. A charming, endearing, and creative script written by Christian Education
Director, Tiffany Horvath, will be performed by the youth of the church in full
costume. All youth are
encouraged to participate (see the announcement on page 4 for more information).
Immediately following the
pageant, there will be an old-fashioned ice cream social. Be sure to remember this date on your calendars and
invite all of your friends and family. These events are being celebrated as part of the church’s 175
Committee activities as well as part of the Hilltop Campus Village’s second annual church Altar Crawl. That
afternoon several area churches will be open for tours and First Presbyterian
Church will be presenting the pageant
and ice cream social. All of these events are open to the public.
