  10. Lamplighters: Join us on Sunday Mornings for Fellowship and great teaching, now at an earlier time. In May, Mark Roberts will be teaching on Fruitfulness in the Third Third of Life. In his overview, Mark writes: God created human beings to be fruitful in life so that we might contribute to the goodness of the world (Gen 1:28). The prophet Jeremiah promised that those who trust in the Lord will “not cease to bear fruit” (Jer 17:7-8). Jesus said that God is glorified when his followers bear much fruit (John 15:8). Our capacity for and calling to fruitfulness doesn’t end, therefore, when we enter the third third of life. In fact, we may even have greater opportunity in this season to invest our time and gifts in ways that maximize the fruitfulness of our lives. Yet the story of fruitfulness in older adulthood is rarely heard in cultural narratives about aging and retirement. We need Scripture to give us God’s vision of third third living in addition to specific guidance for how we might flourish as we get older. Following God’s wisdom, we will experience in real time the biblical story of the righteous producing fruit “in old age” (Ps 92:14). The session opens at 8:30 AM for a time of fellowship and class begins at 9:00am. To receive the class materials and Zoom link, please email Phil Horton.

  12. Giving – There are three ways to give:
    1. Give online here.

    2. Text “Give” to (323) 746-8030

    3. Mail in your offering to the church: FPCH,1760 N. Gower Street, Hollywood, CA 90028

  13. Do you need help with groceries or rent? Our Deacons have a fund for Emergency Assistance Relief (EAR). The EAR fund allows our Deacons to help those in our midst with expenses they cannot manage. Typically the Deacons will provide a once a year assistance up to $1,500.00. In the current time, they are also providing grocery gift cards for those who need help due to COVID-19. Your session Elders discussed and approved accepting donations to enlarge this fund at this time so that we can provide assistance to as many amongst us who need it. To APPLY for relief please email deacon@fpch.org. To DONATE please write EAR COVID in your check memo, or through our online giving, chose Designated Donation -> Discretionary -> putting EAR COVID in the fund memo box. 
  14. Thank you for your generosity! During this time of isolation your gifts are making a tremendous impact. At the beginning of the stay-at-home mandate we had an appeal for giving to the EAR fund. To date, your generosity has grown the fund to approximately $100,000. With those funds we are helping individuals and families every day. Because of your generosity several of our church families have been able to have basic needs supplied, like food, shelter, and utilities. Thank you!
  15. Please be vigilant about Email Scams. Messages will appear to come from Pastor Tim, a staff member or class leader and will ask for a favor and an immediate reply.  Just a reminder, no one on the FPCH staff will ever email you asking you to send money, perform “some tasks” for them, click a link to learn more, or include a vague message asking for a “favor” and for you to respond immediately . You can hover your cursor over the sender’s email address (without clicking it) to view the address of the true sender. Valid email addresses for all church staff members include their full name followed by @fpch.org. Please delete such emails and don’t reply back or click on any links contained within the message. You can read more information here from the FCC on these types of emails: How to Recognize and Avoid Phishing Scams – FCC.
