FHPC Loves Forest Hills Elementary Teachers

To show our appreciation for the work teachers are doing with the young people at Forest Hills Elementary, FHPC from time to time provides a meal for those good folks at the school. The challenges faced every day by educators is understood by most people but often go by with little recogniton. We have a great deal of respect for the efforts made by teachers and we want them to know they are appreciated.


Just before Valentine's Day, FHPC showed our teachers some love with a lasagna luncheon.

The Evangelism Committee wants to thank all of the volunteers that have helped out with these events.

Sharing is Caring



Proposals from General Assembly 221

Last summer the 221st General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America passed several proposals and amendments. These require ratification by the Presbyteries. The Presbytery of Tampa Bay will be voting on them at the Stated Meeting on February 28th.

Here are some links that lead to information pages regarding the proposed changes. Some of the pages have links leading to more information. There are many other sources of information should you choose to do more research via any of the internet search engines.

Faithful Mission: The Confession of Belhar

"Last summer, millions of people across the United States celebrated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s inspiring “I Have a Dream” speech. Yet even as we reflected on the progress in civil rights since 1963, we painfully acknowledged the persistence of racism and its destructive consequences in our church and culture." - Linda Valentine

GA221 on Reconciliation

Christ ‘has given us the ministry of reconciliation’
When the 221st General Assembly (2014) adjourned on June 21, a host of challenging issues had been carefully and prayerfully addressed, leading to momentous decisions that have the potential to impact our life together as one body in Christ. Because the decisions of this Assembly have brought both great joy to some and great disappointment to others, attending to relationships with our sisters and brothers in Christ will be especially important as we engage each other in a spirit of humility.
