Welcome Home to FPC for Winter 2022

Now updated for winter! Check out all of our 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 10:00 AM 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 winter at FPC! Visit the ministry pages or download the Winter 2022 Version 2 Ministry Guide for the updated winter information and detailed class offerings.

PBS: Pastor’s Bible Study with Rev. Dr. Bob Fuller

Joshua: Bold & Courageous

Beginning:

January 5 | 6:30 PM- 7:30PM | Covenant Hall (In-person Only)

January 6 | 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM | Covenant Hall or Livestream via www.fpcsaantonio.org

After decades in the Wilderness, God fulfilled his covenant and sent the people into the land He had promised. But, it was not easy. There was work to do and they were opposed at every turn. The people learned that following the way of the Lord is always a challenge. So the Lord gave them a new leader to guide them, and charged Him to be bold and courageous as they moved into their new home. This Winter the Pastor’s Bible Study (PBS), led by Dr. Bob Fuller, will grapple with join Joshua and the people of Israel as they move into the promised land and fight for their physical and spiritual survival.

Officer Nominations 2022

2022 Nomination of Officers

Elders, Deacons & Trustees | Class of 2025

Nominations Due by January 21, 2022

The life of the congregation is enriched by the many different kinds of service that members offer. This represents an expression of Paul’s great picture of the church as the body of Christ, with each member contributing to the health of the whole. (I Corinthians 12)

Congregational leadership is one important area of service in the church. Each year, members of First Presbyterian Church are called by the congregation to exercise a ministry of leadership within the church as Elders, Deacons and Trustees. These are distinctive leadership roles, calling for particular gifts and commitment.

The offices of Deacon and Elder are part of the rich history of our Judeo-Christian heritage. Please read the scriptures listed below as you seek the leading of the Holy Spirit before completing the nomination form: 1 Timothy 3, 1 Timothy 5, 1 Peter 5, and Titus 1.

The Church Officer Nominating Committee is now seeking names to consider for nomination for service as Elders and Deacons. The Committee asks the congregation to suggest the names of persons who have been regular in worship, active in the life of FPC, generous in support of our ministry and faithful in their life and witness to the gospel.

The committee will meet and consider the persons suggested by the congregation together with the members who have served as officers in the past. The committee will exercise its collective judgment in deciding which members to nominate and present to the congregation for election.

Nomination forms are available to download by clicking here: ONC Form 2022 or you may submit your form online below.

2:30 pm Communion Service

  • Communion will be distributed by each person coming forward via the center aisle to receive the elements. You will then return to your pew via the side aisles. Once seated, you will be directed by the pastor(s) to take the elements when everyone has received them.
  • At the conclusion of the service, ushers will dismiss each row individually. We ask that you exit via the Sanctuary doors on to Alamo Street, returning to your car via the sidewalks on either side of the church. If you need additional assistance, an usher will be happy to escort you through the facility utilizing the elevators.

5:00 pm Family Service

  • Children will receive a Christmas light when they enter the Sanctuary or Westminster Hall for the  service. We ask that you keep the flashlights turned off until instructed by the pastor to turn them on at the end of the service. You are invited to take those lights home at the end of the service.
  • Please note: unlike previous years, the children will not be invited to come forward for the children’s sermon but rather remain in their seats with their families for the entirety of the service.

7:30 & 10:00 pm Candlelight Services

  • This service will conclude with a candlelight recessional on to Alamo Street for the benediction. Ushers will dismiss each row beginning with the back of the Sanctuary or Westminster Hall. Please take all your belongings with you. When you are leaving, please maintain a safe distance with other attendees, including the time you are standing outside for the benediction.
