free admission / silent auction
Back by popular demand, the Mission Committee invites you to celebrate the 5th Annual Mardi Gras for Missions Celebration and help raise funds and awareness for our church’s chosen local and global mission partners.
FPC’s own gumbo chefs will again provide their “award-winning” gumbos which will include seafood, chicken and vegetarian. There will be a children’s “buffet”, beignets, and king cakes. Midway through the event, guests of all ages are invited to join in the parade, led by the Caldwell Elementary Brass Band. Decorate a bike, wagon, or float and join in the fun. Families will be entertained with face painting, a cake walk, balloon artist, crafts, etc.
