HAPPENINGS @ FIRST
Church Directory Updates
We are in the process of updating our church photo directory. It will include photos of the FCC community and that means YOU!
You have the opportunity to have you or your family's photo taken for inclusion in the updated directory. We will also have a way for you to revise or update your information.
Michele Martini is our point of contact on this ongoing project! We're grateful for her leadership.
Current Sermon Series
Advent and Christmas Giving
Our Advent Sermon Series titled "A Christmas Carol" centers on themes and characters from the classic Christmas story by Charles Dickens. The Dickens’ story parallels the gospel in some important ways, through some interesting characters. Exploring these themes will prepare us for the celebration of Christmas and the coming of Christ again into our lives.
Mark your calendars for these Advent Events:
Advent Vespers--Dec. 3, 9, and 16 at 5:53 p.m. Join us these Tuesday nights at 5:53 to share a meal of pasta and salad before Advent Vespers and bible study. Judi VanHorn is accepting donations for these events.
