Fort Lauderdale, FL (July 13, 2017) First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale will kick off the fall season by hosting its annual Rally Day celebration on Sunday, August 27, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. Members and non-members are invited to partake in this free event featuring informational booths from the Church’s ministries and programs, and family-friendly activities including crafts, face painting, a balloon artist, cotton candy and a petting zoo!


“Rally Day is one of our most exciting events because we are able to welcome new members to First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale and show them the myriad programs we have to offer,” said Mona Petersen, Director of Adult Education Ministry and Small Groups at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale. “Congregation members, both new and old, can gather on Rally Day and discover all the wonderful programs we have planned for the upcoming year.”


Everyone is invited to Fellowship Hall, located at 451 Tarpon Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301, directly across from the Sanctuary, to explore display tables that will feature several of the church ministries and programs, including the Adult Activity Center, Adult Education Ministry, Women’s Ministry, Happyland Day School, Youth Ministry and Missions Ministry. Just outside Fellowship Hall, kids can visit the animals at the petting zoo.
