Worship This Weekend
FCC Stained Glass

This Sunday at 10:15 a.m. we Worship in the Park at Fairview Park on North Main St. in Normal.   
Family and friends are welcome!  Please bring lawn chairs and a covered dish to pass.  Music will be led by our vocalist/guitarist, Mitchell Owens, of the One and All Band.  You will love his style!     
In the case of rain, please check your email for confirmation of a "rainy day plan."  The plan is to meet at FCC at 10:15 for worship, and then have an indoor picnic in Fellowship Hall.  Drop off your food at the Fellowship Hall kitchen before worship if you wish. 
As an alternative to outdoor worship for those who prefer, a brief 9:00 service will be held at FCC. 
Rev. Jim Warren will be leading us in worship, and the name of his sermon is, "More than Enough."  In
Mark 6:30-44 we find the account of Jesus feeding the multitudes.  Jesus takes a few loaves of bread and a couple of fish and multiplies them so that there will be enough for the crowd who's gathered to hear him teach.  Jesus shows us that following him means that we live in his abundance.  With Jesus there is always enough, and more than enough.

Things to Do While
You Are at Church
(If you attend the earlier brief service)

Pick up a Wednesday Supper Club schedule
at the Information Center.  Signups for the September 19 5:00 meal at Cracker Barrel will be at the Information Center on September 16, or you can indicate your participation on an attendance pad now.

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 Information Center for another warm greeting and more information.
