Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
"What's in It for Me?"  Come Sunday at 9:00 or 10:15 a.m. and contemplate this question, presented by Rev. Jim Warren in his sermon.  The scripture passage:  Mark 1:29-39.  The 
crowds followed Jesus because he could heal the sick. Why do we follow Jesus? Do we follow Jesus because of what's in it for us? Jesus' way is a much harder way.
Attend either the traditional 9:00 or progressive 10:15  One and All service for great music!  It was good to see several visitors (your guests) last week and we hope you'll keep asking your family and friends to come with you to our welcoming church.  As always, we have a fellowship time around 10:00 a.m. where you can visit over coffee and donut holes, and the 10:15 service offers a very casual and comfortable environment of music, scripture, a sermon, and prayer.  Gather a few minutes early for a light breakfast and coffee (in Fellowship Hall).    
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!

Things to Do While
You Are at Church

       Purchase your Flapjack Fundraiser tickets at the Information Center!  Tickets are for a pancake breakfast at Applebee's on February 17 and cost $5.  This benefits the Westside Block Party.

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!
