RELAY FOR LIFE   Thanks to your generosity, our FCC team has raised $ 9,434. for the American Cancer Society!  Expecting out of town guests?  Take advantage of the "free" Marriott Courtyard weekend stay and make it a win-win-win!  Donate through August.

COME JOIN OUR SOUND TEAM!  Laurel Anderson, Nikki Hensley, John Reimann and John Lathrop are looking for another team member.  We rotate Sundays.  About one Sunday a month, you would operate the Sound System control panel.  That involves pushing buttons at the right time, and twisting knobs to Ride the Gain for each speaking person, so that they're loud enough to be understood but not too loud.  We train you along a very gentle learning curve.  If you would like to contribute to the church in this interesting and engaging way, talk to anyone in our group.

WEDDING COORDINATORS NEEDED. If you like weddings and are organized, you just might be the person to fill the opening for FCC's Wedding Coordinator. Your job is to serve as a liaison between the church and the wedding couple both at the rehearsal and the day of the wedding. In working out the details you'll be working as a team member, which includes the minister, the pianist/organist. There is monetary compensation. Please contact Keiko Hayashi.


LECTIONARY BIBLE STUDY meets Mondays, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Fireside Room. Revs. Melanie Weiner and Chris Breedlove facilitate the discussion, focusing on the scriptures that form the theme of the next Sunday's sermon. You can access the scripture passages at New participants are always welcome.
