Summer Sunday Service Times:
8:30 am (outside) & 10:00 am (Sanctuary)
Musikgarten Summer Splash - Sundays, 9:15 am
Just add water! I can’t imagine what our room would look like if we added water to all the
stomping, running, hopping and spinning that happens during a typical Musikgarten class! Our
children are learning language, moving and dancing, playing instruments and singing together
in a God-centered, musical community at FPC. Feel free to come and join us Musikgarten is for
infants through three years old, but if you have older children, bring them with you during the
summer. If you have friends and family visiting during the summer, feel free to bring them too,
even if you’re not a regular Musikgarten attendee (think Grandparents who want to experience
MG with their grandkids). We’ll meet in Room 307, 9:15-9:50 am, on July 15, 22, 29 and August
5 and 12. If would like more information, please contact Kathy Middleton.
Bix Race Day Fellowship - Saturday, July 28, 7:00 - 11:00 am
Grab a lawn chair and join other FPC members and friends to watch the Bix race
church’s Kirkwood Boulevard lawn. This annual event is eagerly anticipated and is a fun way
for the FPC community to participate in the race day festivities. Donuts and beverages will be
served (a freewill donation gratefully accepted). Festivities begin at 7:00 am and continue to
11:00 am. Hope to see you there! For more information, please contact a member of the
Congregational Development and Fellowship Committee.
Bix Jazz Service - Sunday, August 5, 8:30 am & 10:30 am
FPC welcomes a Jazz trio for its annual Bix Jazz Liturgy led by acclaimed
pianist Jeff Barnhart;
the trio also includes jazz and swing drummer Hal Smith, and an FPC favorite, clarinetist Dave
Bennett. These innovative and entertaining musicians are frequent guest of the Bix
Biederbecke Jazz Festival, and often play together in various “All-Star” ensembles, including a
Fats Waller tribute band.
Services are at 8:30 and 10:30 am in the air-conditioned santuary of the
historic church. All are
welcomed to join in the toe-tapping fun service! First Pres. was the Beiderbecke home church
and Bix’s mother, Agatha, was the organists. Please join us in Fellowship Hall following these
services for homemade cookies and assorted beverages.
Videochat 101 - Sunday, August 19, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
Would you like to be more connected with friends or family who live far away?
Have you heard
of Skype or Facetime, but never tried them? Have you tried them, but couldn’t get a call to
work? Are you not sure what either of these things are? Come to this session! Presenting a
one-time class to help people feel comfortable using Skype or Facetime to videocall friends and
family. We’ll do practice calls with each other and learn how to search for friends and family to
talk with. Please bring your smart phone, laptop, or tablet (iPad, Kindle Fire, etc) and we’ll work
through starting a videocall, step by step. RSVP to Rev. Katie so she can fit the session to your
needs. If you cannot make it but are interested in learning more, please let Rev. Katie know.
Contact Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org or 563-326-1691, ext. 206.
Movie Night: “I Can Only Imagine” - Friday, August 3, 6:00 pm
All are encouraged to join us as we watch this movie in Von Maur Hall. ““I Can Only Imagine”
tells the backstory of how a song came to exist. Not just any song but the best-selling Christian
single of all time. Relatively unique among faith-based films, it’s a decent addition to
Hollywood’s most hit-or-miss genre — the music biopic — that abruptly ends where the first-act
break typically occurs in such movies: before the once-humble singer gets too big for his
britches, caves in to temptation, and starts using drugs and/or cheating on his wife (since, for
once, those tiresome clichés don’t seem to apply). Instead, this movie’s message is all about
inspiration and forgiveness, which should satisfy a decent contingent of the moviegoing public
grateful for a wholesome story with a happy ending.” - Variety.com
