News Highlights

Special Maundy Thursday Service at SFPC - April 18, 6 PM
Please join us at SFPC for a special joint service with First Presbyterian Church. During the service, participants will visit six different sites in the church to reflect on different aspects of Maundy Thursday and the meaning of Easter.  

On Easter Sunday, April 21, we will have our annual Easter Egg Hunt for children during the Sunday School hour.

Lunch at Kings Daughters Apartments - Saturday, April 27
Please join the Outreach Committee (everyone is welcome!) in preparing and serving lunch for our neighbors at Kings Daughters Apartments, across from SFPC on Steele Street, on Saturday, April 27th. Please contact Jonathan Philpot or Debbie Wilson for details.

Social Justice Series Event - Tuesday, April 30, 5:30-7:30 PM
In partnership with the Franklin County Health Department and Frankfort Independent Schools, South Frankfort Presbyterian Church invites the community to a screening and discussion of the documentary film RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE. Register here for this free event. Supper and childcare provided. Offered as part of SFPC's Social Justice Series.

Food Drive - May 19
Check back for details.

Dinner Party Groups are back!
Starting in March, SFPC will again organize small group gatherings with an emphasis on food and fellowship, every two months for half a year. Groups will be formed based on sign ups, and may be a mixture of couples and singles with a target size of around eight individuals per group. Groups will plan their own dinners - hosted, potluck, carry-out or dine-in - whatever sounds good to the group. 

The same groups will meet for dinners in March, May, and July, giving them a chance to get to know each other better. After that, new groups will be formed for the fall/winter. There's lots more information in the 2/19 church newsletter (look in the column to the right or below under "The Courier" and click on "Newsletter 2-19-19") or you can contact Ellen Collins or Brent Sweger to learn more. Let's break bread together!

VBS for Grownups - June 24-27
Vacation Bible School for adults? You bet! Please join us in the Fellowship Hall June 24-27 at 6 PM for a light supper, and 6:30 for presentations and discussion with Dr. Jerry Sumney, of Lexington Theological Seminary. Topic to be announced.

 VBS for Kids - July 26-27
Plans are coming together for children's Vacation Bible School on the evenings of July 26 and 27, with hopes that the children will come back for a special time during church on Sunday, July 28. Check back for more information.
