Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Come Sunday at 9:00 or 10:15 a.m. and hear Rev. Jim Warren's sermon, "How Fast is Immediately?"   In Mark 1:14-20 , Mark tells us that Jesus called 
his first disciples, and they followed him "immediately."  We're not always so quick to follow Jesus.  The sermon will explore how we come to follow Jesus.   
What a joy!  Marshall Alan Hieronymus will be dedicated at the 9:00 a.m. service.  His parents are Ryan and Marie Hieronymus.  Big brother is Noah, and grandparents are Ralph and Linda Lehmann.
At the 9:00 a.m. traditional service the Chancel Choir will gift us with an anthem, "Put Peace Into Each Other's Hands."  The One and All band has a new song ready for you and it is very upbeat and inspiring.  Come hear them at our 10:15 progressive service, and bring a friend who would appreciate a unique and welcoming atmosphere, complete with a complimentary bite to eat.  
Gifts for Another Table:
This month we are collecting for Ministry and More.  Items needed:  canned fruits and vegetables, boxed meals (mac & cheese, Hamburger Helper), canned soup with pull-top lids, cereal, crackers, cookies, and peanut butter & jelly.  This is a fantastic food pantry that helps a lot of people!  During
February we will be collecting for Center For Hope Food Pantry .

Things to Do While
You Are at Church

       See Holly Irvin if you are a crafter. We need crafters to help with a project for Youth Group for Youth Sunday, February 18!  If you could help stencil plates, please see Holly.

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!
