Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
We are joined by our Interim Minister again this Sunday.   Rev. Neal Kentch will preach at both services on the scripture passage
Matthew 10:24-39.  His sermon title:  The Hairs of Your Head 
Another outstanding Gift of Music is being prepared for us for the 9:00 a.m. service, and this time it is a violin duet by Deanne Bryant and Barb Lemmon!  At the 10:15 a.m. service you will be inspired by the One and All Band while you enjoy a complimentary light breakfast.  Haven't been to One and All in a while?  We would love to see you there!  It's in Fellowship Hall.
