Welcome Home to FPC for Fall 2019

The fall semester is in full swing with Sunday school classes, Bible Studies, programs and many more ways to get connected at FPC.

Our mission is to glorify God as we continue to Love Jesus Christ, Love One Another, and Love the City. We offer three regular worship services in addition to Sunday school classes for kids, youth and adults of all ages.

Our children and youth students have Sunday school classes (based on age and grade) during the 9:30 hour as they dive deep into God’s Word and enjoy fellowship with one another. Additionally, we have several different adult Sunday school classes to choose from, discussing different topics and books of the Bible that will engage adults of all ages in deep learning, fruitful discussion, and meaningful engagement with one another.

We look forward to seeing you this fall at FPC! Visit the ministry pages or download the Fall 2019 Ministry Guide for the updated fall information and detailed class offerings.

Loaves & Fishes

Saturday | October 19 | 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM | Student Center
Loaves and Fishes is our monthly opportunity to welcome our under-resourced neighbors for lunch where they will be fed physically and spiritually. We meet in the Student Center on the third Saturday of each month. From 8:30 AM – 2:00 PM, we begin with orientation and then participate in Loaves and Fishes. We have teams for set up, serving, showers, and clean up and we hope all participants will join our guests for a meal around a table.


Mission 709 Update

Mission 709 has been an official FPC focus seeking to empower our congregation toward responding to God’s grace with more faithful participation in His mission of redemptive restoration in our neighborhoods and among the nations. We have prayed for 709 Covenant Partners to touch the lives of 5,000 people. We rejoice to record we have touched over 7,000 people this year through our mission participation, but must understand how many Covenant Partners have participated. Would you please fill out our Mission 709 Service Report Form or email missions@fpcsat.org and let us know if you have served this year with one of our ministry partners; in a mission activity; and/or with an organization in our city, the nation, or among the nations?


SA Heals Serving Opportunities

SA Heals is a ministry on the East Side of San Antonio which works with families and children in the neighborhood around Washington Elementary School. There are several opportunities to serve with the children just minutes away from FPC, through their Reading Buddies Program, volunteering as a Lunch Buddy, and more.

KRL Needs Clothing Donations & Volunteers!

The Kingdom Restoration Lab (KRL) at FPC would like to fill its food and clothing pantries at our new location with necessities for our under-resourced neighbors in their journey to becoming self-sufficient. At this time, we are most in need of socks and undergarments. An Amazon wish list has been created by our partner, Christian Hope Resource Center (CHRC);  Click HERE for the list and to make a purchase. All of the items that you purchase will be shipped directly to the KRL. Thank you so much for your help in this endeavor to serve even more of our San Antonio community!
