Fellowship is important at First Presbyterian Church!
Community Fellowship Each Wednesday night, members of the church and community meet at 5:30 for fellowship and to share a simple meal. September through May, we enjoy hot soups and June through August, we try different salads. People bring homemade breads and delicious desserts to share. It is an informal gathering time, meaningful to all who participate. At 6:30 we have singing, prayer and a short message.
Covered Dish Lunches Four or five times per year, our Congregational Life Team sponsors a covered dish luncheon immediately following worship. The team always has a theme up their sleeves! Everyone is invited to attend lunch and there is always enough food!
Ladies Circle Each month, September through May, women of the church meet for Bible Study. An evening group meets on the second Tuesday at 5:30 in different member’s homes and a morning group meets in the Fellowship Hall at 10:00 a.m. on the second Thursday of each month.
Annual Golf Scramble Each year in the Spring, First Presbyterian Church organizes a Golf Scramble and Luncheon at the Brunswick Country Club to to benefit the Caring Hands Fund of Presbyterian Homes. This fund allows seniors to stay at Presbyterian Homes even if they have outlived their finances.
Engagement with Sister Churches Brunswick is lucky to have three PC(USA) churches! This provides a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and combined worship. Last year, we hosted an Ice Cream Social and Hymn Sing which included FPC, Altama & Brunswick Second with special guests, members from Iglesia Cristiana who meet in our fellowship hall three times per week. Altama, Brunswick Second and FPC often worship together on Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday as well.
Special Musical Events Our sanctuary acoustics are excellent and we like to share! Musical Events are hosted from time to time in the sanctuary. In 2015, FPC hosted the Maryville College Choir.
Hanging of the Greens & Chili Supper On the first Wednesday of Advent (usually!), the Congregational Life team hosts a Chili Supper and Hanging of the Greens to get our Sanctuary and Church Building ready for the Christmas Season. A huge live tree in always provided by a member. Decorations fly and in no time, everyone is sitting down to a great meal!
