Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
This Sunday Rev. Ed Taylor, Chaplain at Hospice Compassus, will deliver the sermon at both services.  The scripture:  John 18:33-38.  The sermon title is, "Who is Our King?"  Please continue to pray for Sharon and Jim Warren.  
At the 9:00 service the Chancel Choir will provide the gift of music, "I Will Give Thanks."  Come to the 10:15 One and All progressive service and once again sing along with "In the Eye of the Storm" and a few favorites.  Enjoy a light breakfast as you worship in this service, in Fellowship Hall.    
A message about Gifts for Another Table:
We're off to a good start!  Let's continue to bring the following items for Regional Alternative School during November:  shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, lotion, diapers, Chapstick (all sizes including travel size -- many available at Dollar Tree/Dollar General).  Thanks to all those who have been bringing items.
"Believing that all students are capable of change, the mission of RAS is to provide students with high quality, innovative, and relevant education, in a safe and positive learning environment that allows all students to identify their goals to achieve personal success. This mission is obtained through partnering with parents/guardians and the community to prove academic, vocational, and technical opportunities."

Things to Do While
You Are at Church

  Pick up an Advent Devotional in the Narthex or on the table outside Fellowship Hall.
Sign up for the Disciples Women's Ministry December meeting by December 3 at the Information Center.  See The Messenger for details.   
Choose a tag on the Adopt-A-Family tree. Our Reach Out Ministry invites you to look for the Christmas tree in the Centrum this Sunday. Choose a tag for a gift to give to a family in need.
Bring a new or gently used donation for the Start Fresh ministry.  Items to bring for this men's prison clothing ministry include coats, scarves, hats, and gloves. 

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!
