Worship This Weekend
We will celebrate Rev. Jim Warren this Sunday!  Gather at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary for worship.  At the service we will honor Jim for his 20 years of service to FCC.  We are extremely blessed to have been (and continue to be) led by one with such a servant's heart.  Come worship and participate in celebrating Jim!
You will not want to miss the music, which will include Jim's favorites, presented by the Chancel Choir, the One and All Band, and Deanne Bryant (violin) accompanied by Lou Ann Fillingham (organ).

If you RSVPed, please make your way to Major Hall after worship for a delicious catered meal (and fun!).   
We will have many visitors and guests at FCC this Sunday.  Please be on the lookout for someone to greet warmly and to help with finding the sanctuary, restrooms, or Major Hall.
Next Sunday we return to our usual schedule.
