Upcoming Events

80’s Dance Party
The RE program will be hosting an 80’s Dance Party. Come down to FPN and dance the night away to all of the best 80’s hits. We’ll have lights, lasers, music, snacks, and even a disco ball! We know you’ll want to hear all your favorites, so we’ll have a clipboard available during Coffee hour each Sunday, or you can just add your request to our Google document here:

We will not be serving alcohol, but if you’d like to bring your own beer or wine you are welcome to. The event is free, so bring all the friends you like. See you there!


Superbowl Party
Join us for a fundraiser for your Youth Group!  Whether or not you come watch the game with us, you can support the Youth Group by buying a chance on the 50/50 game grid. There are 100 chances to win on the grid. A grid block costs $10. We could raise $500 for the Youth Group if all blocks are sold. There will be four grid winners, one for the end of each quarter, and one for the final game score.  See Jim Pickel during coffee hour to buy a block on the grid. All chances will be sold ahead. On Sunday, February 1, come and watch together on our 80” flat-screen media center.  Bring snacks and goodies to share and your own beverages. Find out who the big winners are. The event is estimated to start at 6 pm, but stay tuned for specifics.


The Jesus Seminar
FPN will be hosting a seminar: "Jesus from Cradle to Grave" on February 27 and 28, 2015. The Christian creeds proclaim Jesus as the Son of God who was born of a virgin and physically rose from the dead. How did the conviction that Jesus was the Son of God influence beliefs about his birth and resurrection? Was the story of Jesus' virgin birth meant to be taken literally? Should the resurrection story be understood as a report of an historical event? The presenters will offer their insights and engage participants in a discussion about meaning of these stories, then and now. This seminar will be presented by Arthur J. Dewey (Th.D., Harvard University), Professor of Theology at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH and Robert J. Miller, Ph.D., Claremont Graduate School, Professor of Religious Studies at Juniata College in Pennsylvania. For more information or to register for this event, please visit http://www.westarinstitute.org/events/norwell-2015/. Register by February 13 for the best rate.


Talent Show
On Saturday, March 28, we will have our congregation's talent show. This is an opportunity to share your gifts with the community, and have a ton of fun at the same time! We encourage any kind of performance, including music, dance, poetry, juggling, and anything else you can think of.

  

Knitters Group - and all other Needlework of choice!
Each Tuesday morning beginning at around 9:30 am, a group gathers in the Fogg Parlor for handiwork, coffee, and conversation.  Some come for the whole morning and bring a light lunch.  Others drop in after Tai Chi class or errands. Some come for just the coffee and conversation. Whatever your interests, please drop in and join us - no agendas and no requirements.  Just a great group who care!
