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!

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.
