Seeking to be a living testimony to God's love, grace and mercy

Thinking About Church

Watch for SFPC's new "Thinking About Church" spot on several of FPB's channels in June. If you want to see it now, click the image below. 

Special thanks to Nikki ("Sarah" for this project) and Drew Angst, Luke Bentley, and Pastor Marian for being our stars!

If you have friends who are thinking about church, encourage them to think about joining us at SFPC!

News Highlights

Financial Peace University - Sept. 9

Lunch Bunch - Thursday, Sept. 26

Due to several requests, we will return to the Two Rivers Restaurant, located at the General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton on Thursday, Sept. 26, 12 Noon.  They have a really great Lunch Buffet, at a reasonable price.  Please join us.  It is a pretty drive up US 127 to Monterey, then thru Gratz, on to Perry Park, and then to the park. Afterwards, I am sure most attendees will want to stop at the Vanity Fair Outlet Mall. We will meet at Noon at the restaurant. Visit the Lunch Bunch Facebook Page or call Bill Leroy at (502) 249-1419 for more information about Lunch Bunch gatherings. Join us for food, fun, and fellowship!

SFPC Annual Bazaar - Oct. 18-19

Find treasures in the Bazaar in the Basement, bid on theme baskets and pick up homemade sweets and special recipes at the bake sale. The best part is that all the proceeds go to very deserving charitable organizations, both locally and throughout the world. 

Bazaar: Carolyn Underwood and her crew will soon be busy collecting and organizing the Bazaar in the Basement. Beginning SEPTEMBER 1, bring your fabulous, gently-used items to the SFPC basement. (Please, no clothes, textbooks or Christmas trees)


Bake Sale: There will be lots and lots of delectable delights home baked by so many accomplished cooks in our congregation. Individual desserts and whole cakes, pies and breads will be available each day.


Theme Baskets: Everyone can get in on the fun with this activity! Theme baskets will be on display for silent auction Friday through Sunday after church when they will be awarded to the highest bidder. There will be a variety of baskets with great goodies inside. You do not have to be present to win!
