Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
Rev. Neal Kentch joins us this Sunday, as he will do throughout July.  He will be preaching at both services on Revelation 21:1-6a.  His sermon title:  The Beginning and the End. 
We will be blessed with a solo by Jeff Courtright at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service.  At the 10:15 a.m. One and All progressive service, the band will enhance our worship experience with their lively tunes.  Come to Fellowship Hall to worship and enjoy a light breakfast!
Special note about parking this Sunday:  Street parking around the church will again be at a premium because of an event at the Coliseum down the street. If you are able, please park in the Pantagraph lot or the lot catty-corner from the church on Monroe and Lee Streets, so that those who need to park closer can use the main lot.  If you prefer to park on one of the streets, you may try to arrive a bit earlier.
food_drive_girl.jpg Gifts for Another Table:
This is our last Sunday to bring items for the Ministry and More food pantry. 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!

Things to Do While

Mary & Martha Benefit Update:  
Thank you to all who volunteered and/or participated in the benefit for the Warren family this past weekend. Donations totaling $2,516 will be given to the Warren family.  Those who placed orders may pick up their items before or after the 9:00 a.m. service in the Centrum this Sunday. Raffle winners were: Martha Hunter, Rita Fisher, and Marcia Christensen.  
Drop Off School Supplies and Other Items. No Block Party this year, but Reach Out will be collecting supplies for Sheridan School and Bent School.  Please consider purchasing school supplies and bringing them to the tote by the Info Desk. Also, gently used tennis shoes, coats, clothes for kids to change into in case of accidents, and new boys' and girls' underwear are needed.
Learn about Recycling/Trash Guidelines.  Watch the pre-worship and Centrum slides in the coming weeks. Also, find the guidelines attached to or posted near the prominent recycling bins throughout the building. Please be sure you are using the appropriate bins when disposing of items. Thank you!
Volunteer to Help Around FCC.  Find signup sheets at the Info Desk.   
Drop off your Box Tops for Education in the Disciples Women's Ministries mailbox outside the church office door.  
Make a new friend!  Greet a visitor. Greet someone another member has greeted!  Several contacts truly make a person feel welcome.  A great resource for helping a visitor is the bulletin, and you can also walk them to the Info Desk for another warm greeting and more information.
