Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Rev. Jim Warren is back with us Sunday and will be preaching about God's abundance at both the 9:00 a.m. traditional service and 10:15 a.m. progressive One and All service.  The sermon is, " Enough, and More than Enough," and will reference Exodus 16:2-3, 9-15.   This is the story of God providing food for the Israelites as they wandered in the wilderness. God gives us enough, and more than enough. Ours is a God of abundance.
The Chancel Choir will lead us in hymns at the 9:00 service, and are preparing a wonderful gift of music just for you!  We will also have special music by Holly Irvin (flute) and Brian Thompson (clarinet).  Don't miss it!  At the progressive 10:15 One and All service, the band will be great, as usual!  Grab a coffee and light breakfast in Fellowship Hall shortly after 10 and get ready for a unique worship experience.    
A message about Gifts for Another Table:
September is the month we collect items for St. Vincent De Paul.  Non-perishable food items needed include boxed rice dinners, pasta and sauce, potato dinners with sauce, Hamburger Helper, instant mashed potatoes, and canned vegetables and fruit.

Things to Do While
You Are at Church

Bring a travel-size item for Operation Santa (a Disciples Women's effort) for military men and women and leave it near the Information Center.  See The Messenger for details.

Bring your Box Tops for Education for Bent School.  Place them in the Disciples Women's Ministries mailbox near the office and they will be taken to the school by May Jackson.  Thank you!
Check In on Facebook while you are at church.  And at the One and All service feel free to use your device for social media, to share photos and thoughts about your worship experience as it happens.  

Make a new friend!  Greet a visitor.  Show folks around and help them with questions they might have.  Invite them to worship and/or to share fellowship over a cup of coffee or breakfast treat.  The bulletin is a great source of information for visitors, as is the Information Center.  Let's be a welcoming church!
