Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Rev. Jim Warren will preach at both the traditional 9:00 a.m. and progressive 10:15 a.m. services.  His sermon, In the Breaking of the Bread, will explore the passage Luke 24: 28-35.  About the sermon, Jim says, "The walk to Emmaus story is about Jesus' appearance to two of His disciples on the road to Emmaus. They don't recognize Jesus until they break bread together. When we break bread together, Jesus is made known to us."
Music at the 9:00 a.m. service will include a solo from the very-talented Jake Scheuring.  Our reliably-talented One and All band has been practicing and will be ready with some of our favorites at the 10:15 a.m. progressive service.  Come hear them play while enjoying a light, complimentary breakfast during this unique service.   
The red reusable grocery bags we introduced last Sunday will be on sale right after each service (at 10:00 in the centrum and after the One and All service at the back of Fellowship Hall).  Price:  one for $2 or three for $5.
