Cantata Chancel Choir
The 2014 FPC Chancel Choir and special guests performed O Night Divine, the Birth of the Savior Thursday, December 4, and Sunday December 7.
Unlike our past cantatas this production was homespun, with Karen Thomasy, Steve Watson and Debra Embry choosing all of the music, and Debra writing all of the narration.
They were wonderful performances with large attendance.
Celebration of Nativities
First Presbyterian hosted a Celebration of Nativities display during the annual Norwegian Country Christmas Tour, Saturday, December 1, 2012.
Nativity scenes from as far away as Czechoslovakia, Germany, the Andes, Italy, Guatamala and Jerusalem were included.
Table of Plenty
Sissy Zander and Debra Embry teamed up for the annual decoration of the Communion Table for the Nov. 18 service prior to Thanksgiving. A wonderful church lunch was served after the service. Special thanks to Punky Penberthy for helping to acquire items for the decoration and to the Congregational Care committee and all contributing church members for the meal.

Mo-Ranch Women’s Conference
There is a “Presence” there—PRESBYTERIAN MO-RANCH ASSEMBLY on the north fork of the Guadalupe River near Hunt, Texas, in the beautiful Texas hill country!
This month First Presbyterian Church, Clifton, was excited to have 11 women attend the May 29-31, 2012 Women's Conference!
It was truly a “mountaintop experience.” One lady reflected upon a 7 a.m. Chapel on the Hill devotional using Psalm 121, “I lift up my eyes to the hills—” The solo, “Morning Has Broken,” was awesome! The Conference worship services in the large gathering place were exceptionally meaningful with the theme: “Reflecting the Light: from Mountaintop to Mainstreet.”
Beautiful music, creative Bible study, a spectacular worship center arrangement were uplifting. Ladies could choose to participate in 3 of 14 workshops offered. Swimming in the river or pool, sitting on a bench under a tree with a fabulous view and a friend with whom to chat--all things together were inspiring, captivating, indescribable.
What a blessing for all attendees!
