Men’s Ministry

The men of FPC meet on the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 – 7:30 a.m. Join us in Westminster Hall for a great time of food, fellowship, prayer and to hear how God is working on the hearts of men.

FP Men also serve as our “heavy lifters”; providing event support by cooking, offering clean-up and security. We provide support to the members of the church by performing light maintenance in homes and around the church campus.

For more information, or to find out how you can get involved, contact Boyd Binninger at 661-703-0340.

Schooners

The Schooners are a fellowship group that plans, hosts, and supports social events for adults of all ages to enjoy. Our focus is to get to know one another more deeply and to learn more about God’s love and goodness, in a welcoming environment for church members, friends, and guests.  In the past we have hosted theme parties, mystery nights, car rallies, dances, and other fun events.  Faith, fun, and fellowship are what we are all about!  Please join us for our next gathering!

For more information, or to find out how you can get involved, contact Karrie Camp at 661-391-8309.

Clipper Club

The Clipper Club at First Pres is a social and outreach group that is composed of upper-range adults.  Our meetings are held on the second Friday of each month, September through June, at 6:30 p.m. and almost always in Westminster Hall at the church. The meetings start with a short devotional followed by dinner and a program.

Clippers also raise money through our various activities: auctions, trips to plays in LA and other events. We call the money raised our “Cargo” and once a year a committee is set up to recommend to the group how the Cargo is to be given to the various missions. Most of the missions such as Love Inc, Gleaners, and Teen Challenge are local, but we have also given money to a village in India to drill a water well to supply potable water for the village.

We encourage all in our age group to come out and share in the fellowship and help in reaching out to others.

For more information, or to find out how you can get involved, contact Ed Western at 661-331-6233.

God’s Special People

Sunday School: 9:15 am – 10:15 am
First floor of the Truxtun Building (F St. and Truxtun).

The Special Needs Ministry recognizes that God created each person to bring glory to him, (John 9: 1-3). We believe that persons with disabilities can and do model Christian attitudes and are effective witnesses for Jesus Christ. (Mark 16:15-16; Romans 10:12-15; Matthew 5:13-16) We believe that when we show respect and honor for the gifts that each person has been given and enable people to find ways to use them, we are following God’s plan for building up the body of believers and ensuring that God’s house will be full. (Matthew 25:31-46, Luke 14:13-23, 1 Corinthians 12:21-26)
