Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
We are resuming our sermon series, "Did You Hear the One About..." this Sunday.   
At both the 9:00 traditional and 10:15 progressive services Jim Warren will ask, "Did You Hear the One About the Obnoxious Widow?"  The parable is found in Luke 18The widow in this parable harasses the judge until the judge finally caves in and gives her what she wants.  Jesus says this is to be our approach in prayer. 
Once again, at the 10:15 progressive service in Fellowship Hall, the One and All band will be on a break but we will have lyric videos of our favorite songs  As always a light breakfast will await you. Why not invite a friend to enjoy the experience with  you?  
Please remember that Change for a Change is this Sunday and it benefits the Block Party.  Bring your spare change to worship (both services).
