Worship This Weekend
This Sunday is Stewardship Commitment Sunday, and with that theme, Rev. Jim Warren will preach on this passage:
II Corinthians 9:6-9
. Hear his sermon at either service -- the 9:00 a.m. traditional service in the sanctuary or the 10:15 a.m. progressive One and All service in Fellowship Hall.
At the traditional service,
the Gift of Music will be presented by the Chancel Choir. At t
he One and All service, the band will sing and play yet another new song! Come worship at this progressive service and enjoy a complimentary light breakfast and hot coffee as you do.
Can't attend either service this Sunday? Tune in on Facebook (go to our
), or on our website (
) to see a live stream! You can watch the 9:00 a.m. service and worship along with those at FCC Sunday morning. Be sure to tell your friends!

ce and rice dinners, potato dinners, pasta of any kind, pasta sauce, Hamburger Helper, dinner meals, cereal, mashed/boxed potatoes, and canned fruits and vegetables. Especially appreciated is peanut butter.
