Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass
At the beginning of November each year it is tradition to honor our Saints, those who have died in the past year.  Come to the 9:00 a.m. service to do so, and to hear about the Legacy Circle and memorial donations made by some who have passed.  Our scripture passage is John 11:32-44 and Rev. Jim Warren's sermon is entitled, "The Resurrection."   
Jim will preach at both the 9:00 traditional service and the 10:15 progressive One and All service.  A beautiful gift of music will be presented by the Chancel Choir at the 9:00 service, and the always-inspiring One and All Band will be appearing at the 10:15 service.  Don't miss them, and a spread of delicious (and complimentary) breakfast foods, in Fellowship Hall.
