Outdoor Family Worship & Lunch
Sunday, September 25, 10:30 am in green space behind church, lunch served immediately after

This Sunday we are setting up for a fun OUTDOOR service for the whole family! Kids will join with parents for this special service on the church back lawn, followed by great grilling and food. We'll have an outdoor stage and hundreds of chairs set up, but you are welcome to arrive early and set up your favorite lawn chair as well. Expect a fun (abbreviated) message with creative elements to engage children and adults together. Each family is encouraged to bring a dish to share with the church family. Hot dogs and burgers provided by the church and grilled by the deacons.  Sign up below if you are able to bring desserts, chips or a side dish to our lunch meal. Hope to see you outside Sunday morning.

New Wednesday Night Class
Starts Sept. 28, 7 pm, upper balcony in the foyer  

Raising kids in today's culture is challenging and requires a plan. Sometimes it's easier to focus on immediate problems rather than deal with the deeper and more important ones.  Surviving each day is much easier than taking the time and energy to consider how parenting actions impact a child's future.  We get it.  The good news is that it is never too late to be an intentional parent.  Don't worry you are not alone, let's walk this important journey together.  Remember, you are the GREATEST influence in the life of your child (no matter their age)!  Questions about the series, contact Manda Miller at  Manda@fccf.org
