HAPPENINGS @ FIRST
Church Directory Updates
We will soon begin the process of updating our church photo directory. It will include photos of the FCC community and that means YOU!
Beginning Sunday, August 24 you will 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.
