Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Continuing our Stories That Matter sermon series, Rev. Jim Warren will preach at both the 9:00 traditional and 10:15 progressive One and All services about 1 Corinthians 13.  Jim says, "This is the familiar 'love chapter' that is often read at weddings. What most people don't realize is that it comes in response to a great deal of conflict happening in the Corinthian church. God's love is meant to be lived in hard and trying situations."
The chancel choir is preparing a beautiful gift of music for those who attend the 9:00 service.  At  10:15, you can enjoy a complimentary light breakfast in Fellowship Hall while you worship and sing along with the One and All Band.
