2004 at First Presbyterian

The year 2004 began with Holy Communion served in the Chapel at the 8AM service. The Presbyterian Women’s eight circles, led by Nita Cinquina, proudly donated $400.00 to the church’s general fund. Men’s Fellowship invited the women to their second annual Valentine’s Day Breakfast on February 2. Bobbi Hoover was encouraging the beginning of a Stephen Ministers group and the FPC Travelers enjoyed “Show Boat” at the Broadway Palms. On March 7, twenty-five young string musicians performed at the 10am service and on April 2, the African Children’s Choir gave a 7pm performance following a catered dinner. April also saw the “Singles Fellowship” meet on the 19th and the FPC Travelers visited several Native American Reservations. The June Fellowship Dinner was a Pizza Party. Carol and Larry Arseth were honored by Grand Canyon Presbytery for their “church dedication and work!" In August Presbyterian Women collected school supplies for the Glendale Family Development Center at their Taco Salad luncheon. A Grandparent’s Day Picnic with treats and activities for kids followed the services on September 12. Rev. Gary Kush resigned on September 26. In October the long-awaited Heavenly Helpings cookbook went on sale for $12.95 each. A Fashion Show entertained diners at the November Fellowship Dinner on the 17th and PW held a food drive for Agua Fria. December 11 introduced the first of many delightful P W Christmas High Teas. Men’s Fellowship invited the women to their Christmas Program and Breakfast on the 14th, while those attending the Potluck on the 15th were serenaded by our choir singing Christmas Carols.
