Back by popular demand! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
FPC’s Mission Committee invites you and your family to celebrate Mardi Gras and help raise funds and awareness for our chosen mission partners. Guests of all ages are invited to join in the opening parade.
Afterwards, FPC’s own gumbo chefs will again provide their “award-winning” seafood, chicken and vegetarian gumbos. Side dishes will include rice, chicken strips, salad, a member-baked dessert station and king cakes. During the evening, children will be entertained with face painting, a cake walk, a balloon artist and crafts. A nursery will be provided (children under 3).
Benefactors: Locally - PATH, Habitat for Humanity, Gateway to Hope, Bethesda Health Clinic, the Literacy Council, Meals on Wheels and the Good Samaritan Counseling Center; Globally - Solar under the Sun/Living Waters for the World, Presbyterian Education Board Pakistan Schools, and mission co-workers in Zambia, Charles and Melissa Johnson.
Volunteers are needed! Provide a gumbo dish, make a home-made dessert, or help with decorating or clean up, be a sponsor or participate in the parade. For more information or to volunteer, contact Ginny Mattox, (903-504-5016).
