FPCL News & Events

givingtreeGiving Tree: FPCL has partnered with Tri-Valley Haven's Holiday program for many years which helps meet the needs of families during the Christmas season. This year, due to COVID-19 and restrictions, Tri-Valley Haven has transformed their procedures and is asking for donations of cash or gift cards so they can safely serve thousands of individuals who are in great economic need.

Now, more than ever, this holiday program is essential and with FPCL's donations all households will receive pre-bagged food, a Safeway card or a turkey, and a Walmart or Target card.
You can mail or drop off a check at the church office made out to FPCL with “Giving Tree” on the memo line. If you prefer, you can drop off Safeway, Target, or Walmart gift cards.
Donations need to be received in the church office by Monday, December 7th


Christmas Poinsettias - a little different this year! To brighten up our online worship experience during Advent, FPCL Worship, Hospitality and the Connections Teams are providing the poinsettias in the Sanctuary this year, in celebration of all of you who are connected with us and also in memory of family and friends near and far. You don't have to do a thing; just enjoy the beautifully decorated area and Advent services. 


FPCL’s Refugee Services Committee is back at work with Jewish Family Community Services East Bay (JFCSEB) to help support refugee families that have been resettled in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties! Four new families have arrived in the last month.  JFCSEB has set up two Amazon wish lists for those desiring to help. Due to contact free delivery safety protocols during the pandemic, the items ordered will be sent directly to the JFCSEB office for distribution. Both links are DIFFERENT and both contain an address from which you may request a donation receipt (in the info section). They are in need of Baby & Toddler Diapers & Household items
Visit our Ministry Page for further info and LINKS TO PURCHACE ITEMS:



Your Generosity at Work! Over the last few weeks our church (through our COVID relief fund) has supported local schools by providing headsets, lap-desks, wobble chairs and privacy shields for students. These supplies are allowing school administrators to have the flexibility to respond to the needs of students quickly and in real time. Our church has also been able to financially support several families in our local community struggling during this time of economic uncertainty. Thank you for your on-going generosity!

FPCL Presbyterian Women's Virtual Christmas Gathering: Saturday, December 5, 2020 - 2 pm – 3:30 pm

What could be better than to gather via Zoom and get into the Christmas spirit!
We will be able to peek inside a home or two to see some Christmas decorations and we hope everyone will share a special Christmas ornament or decoration and share why it is special to you. We will have a Christmas story, music and a Christmas cookie recipe exchange.
If you want to participate in this gathering please e-mail Phyllis Brewer at dpbrewer@pacbell.net to let her know you want to join the festivities. Everyone is invited. See you there!
