Would Your Pray About This 3-Day Renewal?
A Pilgrimage Weekend is not just “another retreat”. No, it is a part of a personal spiritual journey. At a Pilgrimage, you can experience a deepened relationship with Christ, which can continue growing and last a lifetime.
Pilgrimage Weekends provide an opportunity to:
- meet Christ face-to-face;
- to begin to understand Christ’s love, grace, forgiveness; and
- to become even more alive in your faith, with a renewed sense of hope and purpose.
But there’s more! Weekends are a lot of fun, too!
Pilgrimage seeks Christians who are themselves seeking spiritual growth and are seeking a more vital expression of their faith in their lives. A Pilgrimage Weekend is open to all Christians.
Would you will prayerfully consider attending your Pilgrimage this Spring? You can register in 5 minutes, at this link. The cost is $200 for lodging and meals, but scholarships are available, so don’t let cost be a barrier!
- Arkansas' 28th Pilgrimage Weekend will be held at Camp Paron in Paron AR (just west of Little Rock), April 19-22, 2018.
To learn more, speak with one of the FPC members who have been to their own Pilgrimage: Clark & Madeleine Middleton, Becky Walker, Becky McGaughey, Felice Dennis, Carolyn Sims, Clay Parton, Linda Truitt, Paula & David Boatright, Judy Stein or Claudia Brigham.
Bring a can of soup or two and deposit in the soup pots by the doors as you come into Worship. These will be donated to our Yellville Food Closet.
Tuesday, February 13th 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
It will soon be time for our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper! Preparations are being made for an evening of wonderful fellowship and, as always, great food! The men are planning a delicious meal of pancakes and sausage! A meal you don’t want to miss! The cost is a donation which will go to “One Great Hour of Sharing”. See you there!!
