Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Are your ears tingling?  Come hear Rev. Jim Warren preach at both the 9:00 traditional and 10:15 progressive One and All services on I Samuel 3:1-11.  His sermon title is, "Tingling Ears" (how God calls us to fulfill God's mission in the world).   
Come hear the message and the music.  Join with your church family singing hymns of praise for God's faithful leading at the 9:00 service.  The One and All band is preparing some of your favorite numbers for the 10:15 service in Fellowship Hall.  Gather a little after ten, grab a bite to eat and a cup of hot coffee, and settle in for this unique worship experience.      
Gifts for Another Table:
This month we are collecting for Ministry and More.  Items needed include canned fruits and vegetables, boxed meals (macaroni & 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!
