Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
This Sunday we will explore Matthew 28:16-20, and Rev. Jim Warren will preach a sermon called, "Go."  Come hear him at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service or the 10:15 a.m. progressive service.  About the sermon, Jim says, "Jesus tells the disciples to go and make disciples of all nations, but how well do we follow Jesus' commandment?"  We will worship, pray, and sing, and will be gifted at the 9:00 a.m. service with a solo by Jake Scheuring.
Come to the 10:15 a.m. progressive service in Fellowship Hall for a unique experience, which includes prayer stations, a band, and a complimentary light breakfast.     
The church office will be closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day, and in appreciation of those who have served in the military.
