PLAY: Re-Creating Joy

There is no limit to the amount of joy one can experience in life and there may not be anything more joyful than getting together with the people you love and enjoy being around. The Congregational Life committee takes the experience of re-creating joy very seriously and invites you to be a part.  There are lots of opportunities throughout the year to engage in fellowship with others from FPCLY.  Everyone is always welcome to join in the fun and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!!!

Coffee Café

(Due to COVID-19 Coffee Café has been temporarily suspended.)

Join us Sunday mornings from 9:30 am - 10 am in the Officers’ Room for a time of fellowship and community over light breakfast foods, regular and decaf coffee, hot tea, and juice.

It's a great time to have breakfast, gather, and be together before Spiritual Growth classes and worship!

After worship each Sunday, enjoy a time of fellowship and community over lemonade and sweet treats!
