The Worship Calling is in need of Volunteers for Ushers during Sunday Worship Services. Normal attrition has left us short-handed. Ushers are organized into teams that rotate from month to month, so scheduling is flexible. Please volunteer by emailing Tom Ball at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 The Adult Sunday School Class invites you to join them on Sunday at 9 a.m in the Parlor.

FPC-McAllen's Spanish Worship Services are offered each Sunday at 5 p.m in the Parlor.
