Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Isaiah 6:1-8 is this Sunday's scripture passage.  "Here I Am; Send Me!" is the sermon title.  About the sermon, Rev. Jim Warren says, "After experiencing the absolute holiness of God, the prophet Isaiah responds to God with a strong, 'Here I am; send me!'  When we experience the depths of who God is, we similarly assent readily to taking on God's mission."   
At the 9:00 service, our gift of music is appropriate to the theme and promises to be wonderful. At One and All, the band will be performing some favorites so gather at 10:15 in Fellowship Hall for a sermon, prayer, music, and a complimentary breakfast.

Things to Do While
You Are at Church

Sign up at the Information Center to be a VBS volunteer.  You may also talk to Holly Irvin if you are interested in the opportunity.  

Grab a Donation Post-it Slip for VBS meals/snacks at the Information Center.  Your help is greatly needed and appreciated!

Help Promote VBS with a VBS Button!  We have had 180 VBS buttons gifted to us!  If anyone will take one and wear it this week and promote VBS that would be super.  Pick yours up at the Information Center.
Support the 2018 Block Party 4 School Kits
by signing up and getting details at the Information Center.  Also support the block party by purchasing a Block Party T-shirt and by dropping new toothpaste and toothbrushes at the Information Center (ask your dentist when you go for a cleaning!).
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. We are seeing more and more visitors lately and they seem to love a friendly greeting.  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!   
The Church Office will be closed Monday, May 28, for Memorial Day.
