Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Worship this Sunday at 9:00 or 10:15 a.m. Rev. Jim Warren will be preaching on II Kings 5:1-4, and the sermon title is, "How to Be Healed."    
This is the story of Naaman, a foreign general who had leprosy. He eventually finds his way to the prophet Elisha, who tells him how to be healed. The agents of healing in this story are slaves and servants, and the location of the healing is the small River Jordan. Naaman becomes angry that his healing is not more suitable for a person of his stature. If we want to be healed - in our hearts and souls - we must listen for God, wherever God may be found.

The Chancel Choir and Bell Choir are both preparing to present wonderful music during the 9:00 service, and the One and All Band is sounding better than ever -- come hear them in Fellowship Hall at 10:15 during the weekly progressive service.  Come!  Bring a friend for either welcoming experience.  Hot coffee awaits us, and a bite to eat can be enjoyed between the services and at One and All.

Gifts for Another Table:
This month we are collecting for Center For Hope Food Pantry. Non-perishable food items needed include rice, rice dinners, potato dinners, pasta and sauce, Hamburger Helper, dinner meals, cereal, and pull-top canned vegetables and fruit. This Food Pantry does a great job helping people!
