Church Life

First Presbyterian Church is a family of faith. We are a large and diverse community who share a common faith in Jesus Christ. Together we celebrate God's love through the various activities of our church. To help illustrate how members of our church fellowship with one another, we have created this, The Church Life section. We warmly welcome you to participate in the life and ministry of this church.

90th+ Birthday Celebrations at First Presbyterian Church

Dear FPC Families,

· Saturday, September 26, 10:00 AM – Parade for Honorees living in the near NE heights (Manzano del Sol and others south of I40) and Honorees in north valley, on west side, and in Rio Rancho

(Participants for this parade should gather at 9:30am in lower FPC parking lot outside A Child’s Garden.)

· Saturday, September 26, 2:00 PM – Parade for Honorees living in the far NE heights

(Participants for this parade should gather at 1:30pm in the parking lot of the movie theater at 12921 Indian School Rd. NE – next to Hinkle Family Fun Center at the NW intersection of Tramway and Indian School.)

Special Notes:  Cards and art supplies for making banners and posters are available outside the Sunbonnet Shop at the church.  Cards can be placed in the blue mailbox on the supply table. Please note from the Calendar of Events above, that there is no Friday parade. In the interest of time, number of stops, and your efforts, we have decided to combine the Friday parade with the Saturday AM parade.  The 2020 Honoree list that follows includes “am” or “pm” by each name to denote the parade in which each will be honored. Thanks for your continued help in this endeavor!
