Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
This Sunday Rev. Neal Kentch will be preaching at both services on Mark 1:29-39.  His sermon title:  He Raised Her Up. 
Don't miss the special music at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service, which will be a piano duet by Lou Ann Fillingham and Becky White!  Come enjoy a complimentary light breakfast at the 10:15 a.m. One and All progressive service while you sing along with the band.  That service is in Fellowship Hall, and it is a great choice for a friend who is visiting FCC for the first time.

We will continue to collect items for the Ministry and More food pantry, to whom we didn't deliver much in June. Let's bless them greatly with a large donation at the end of July.  Won't you bring a couple of items?  Needed are rice and rice dinners, potato dinners, pasta of any kind, pasta sauce, Hamburger Helper, dinner meals, cereal, mashed/boxed potatoes, and canned fruits and vegetables. Thank you!
