Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Rev. Jim Warren's sermon series, "Did You Hear the One About..." continues this Sunday with "Did You Hear the one about the Silly 
Bridesmaids?" There are ten bridesmaids in this parable, but only five of them brought extra oil. When the bridegroom was late to arrive, those five were prepared. The five without extra oil were locked out of the wedding banquet. Are we prepared for the bridegroom (Jesus Christ) to appear unexpectedly?   Read the parable here:  Matthew 25:1-13
We will gather in worship at the 9:00 traditional service in the sanctuary, where a beautiful gift of music will be given.  This is our "Silver & Gold" Sunday.  Those married 25, or 50 or more, years will be recognized at the 9:00 a.m. service, with a reception following the service, in the Centrum.
 At the 10:15 progressive service in Fellowship Hall, One and All, a light breakfast and live band music will enhance your worship experience.
