The Session recently approved contracting with Fran Tilton Shelton, DMin, to serve as part-time parish associate. Fran has participated in worship, Sunday School and PW Circle 11 since 2012 when she moved from serving for 10 years as an associate pastor for congregational care to serving as a spiritual director and founder of the non-profit, Faith & Grief Ministries.  After caring for her husband, Bob (who served FPC in several interim capacities), until his death in March, 2018, she wrote a soon-to-be-released book, No Winter Lasts Forever  A Memoir of Loving Bob and Loathing Alzheimer’s. 

When asked about beginning November 1, she responded, “This is an exciting way to celebrate my older daughter’s 40th birthday! I’m humbled and thrilled to be part of the FPC team of servant leaders and I will try to remember to wear my name badge.”
