Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
This Sunday, in both services (9:00 traditional and 10:15 progressive), we take a break from our "Questions" series.  Holly Irvin will preach on Joshua 1:9 and her sermon title is, "Every Road."

Music at the 9:00 service will include a beautiful  anthem sung by a quartet ( Beverly Leight, John Hensley, Linda Lehmann, and Jeff Courtright).  At 10:15 the One and All Band will be in Fellowship Hall playing and singing some of your favorites while you enjoy a light breakfast.   

A message about Gifts for Another Table for July:
Let's start off with a bang with items for Home Sweet Home Ministries. Suggestions of non-perishable food items to bring with you to church during July are: boxed rice dinners, pasta & sauce, potato dinners & sauce, Hamburger Helper, instant mashed potatoes, and canned vegetables & fruit.                                         - Pete Whitmer
