Please check the sign-up table in the patio on Sundays to find which times are still available.  Any questions, please contact Jill Gustafson through the church office at office@fpsd.org or (619) 582-8480.

Beacon – College Gathering

The BEACON will be kicking off again on Sunday, August 23rd.  Beacon is our worship gathering on Sunday evenings at 7.  Although this event is geared towards college students, everyone is welcome to come and worship with us.  On Sunday, August 30th, we will have a BBQ dinner at 6:15pm before Beacon.  Please join us.


Hot Dog Stands

HD 5To kick off the new semester, we will be having two Hot Dog Stands.  The first will be on Friday, August 21st at 10:00pm (setup starting at 9:30pm). The second will be on Monday, August 24th at 11:00am (setup starting at 10:30am).  We need volunteers to help with food or just greet.    We welcome food donations.

Thank you!

48-Hour Prayer Room

The 48-Hour Prayer Room will be back again this semester on August 21 thru 23.  This can be an incredible opportunity to not only pray for SDSU and God’s work on the campus, but also to expand your own prayer life.  The prayer room contains stations of guided prayer.  These stations may give you prompts on what to pray for or even give you a new way to approach prayer, such as through creative art.  It is always an amazing experience and your hour there will go by faster than you would think.  Sign up for your hour on the clipboard outside the sanctuary on Sunday mornings.


SDSU Students Are Coming Back!

SDSU students are already coming back into town and we are just two weeks away from the start of a new semester.  College Ministry is always looking for more people to help with Hotdog Stands and other programs and to bring new ideas to the committee.  If you are interested, our next meeting is this Tuesday, August 11 at 2:00pm.  If you are unable to attend this meeting, but are still interested in helping out, please contact Sarah Scardino thru the church office, (619) 582-8480 or office@fpsd.org.

The first late night Hotdog Stand for the upcoming semester will be on Friday, August 21st.  Volunteers are needed.   Also, the Intervarsity hosted 48-Hr Prayer Room is happening August 21, 22, and 23.   The BEACON,  our Sunday college gathering will start August 23 at 7:00pm.  Faith Presbyterian Church will be hosting a BBQ to welcome our SDSU students prior to the BEACON on Sunday, August 30th.  So there are many volunteer opportunities you can participate in.  Thank you for your generosity and kindness to our SDSU neighbors.
