Hot topics ...

  • August 30 (tentative) The Fellowship Committee has tentatively scheduled a church picnic at Camp Lackawanna. This would be an outdoor church service followed by a bag lunch. Please share your thoughts with at by calling the church office at 570-586-6306 or an e-mail to office@fpccs.org.
  • 21-Day
  • Ongoing - Our Mission and Justice committee invites you to take the 21 Day Challenge for Racial Equity. The invitation is to learn more about how others experience exclusion, oppression, and discrimination. We can't know what to "do" until we can learn to see. Continuing our church's anti-racism work over the past year, we invite you to see something every day...that will equip us to do what is right.
    On a webpage, we have listed internet links to a number of learning activities such as articles, video clips, and readings. Many are brief, but all have the power to teach us.
  • Upper Room Devotional Booklets for May/June have arrived at the church. If you or someone you know routinely takes one home, please leave a message on the church voicemail (570-586-6306) or send a message to office@fpccs.org and we will mail it out.
  • St. Francis Clothing Center is in need of all types of clean, gently used seasonal clothing for men and women. There is a special need for men’s sneakers and jeans. Please leave your donations in the box located in fellowship hall.
  • The 120-year old Presbyterian Mission Yearbook for Prayer & Study has become an online-only free digital resource. This move broadens the reach of the book’s audience by sharing its inspiring content in a timelier manner and also demonstrates good stewardship of church resources. 
    The Mission Yearbook dates back to 1892 as a simple calendar of prayer to help women’s societies pray for missionaries on designated days. It has the longest history of any denominational mission and prayer book in the United States.
  • Going on vacation?  Did you know that you can set up your on-line giving so your pledge goes to the church even if you can't.  Click on the  big green pledge button and and set up your periodic giving. You can also direct a gift to any program.  Missions, music, youth programs, OGHS and the Deacon's Fund are just a few of the many programs that can use your gifts.
  • The Presbyterian Church (USA) is governed by its Book of Order. More than a mere "rule book," the Book of Order is a collection of wisdom, a statement of our church's values, and reasonable operating principles for how the church of Jesus Christ will do its work in the world. The Presbyterian Book of Order is available for downloading here.
