A Word From Mike…

Pray for our veterans,
our military,
and their families.

A special word of thanks to Pam Hall and Cindy Schaefer for all of their work on the budget and financial planning.  This is a job that requires countless hours with little reward.

Also, we greatly appreciate the work of Kristyn Reid, Elyse Davis and our elders in finalizing and organizing our department heads, officers and other leadership for 2018.

We are greatly blessed by the leadership of these ladies and so many others.

Thanks for sharing the journey,
Mike


FCC Youth

On Wednesday Evening, November 15th, The youth will be helping serve and clean up during our annual Thanksgiving meal. The meal starts at 6 p.m. so that will be perfect since it is the same time that we usually meet!

On Sunday, November 19th, The Youth are going toy shopping for Christmas for Others. We will leave immediately following 2nd worship service. We will go eat and then shop for toys! This will be our Sunday evening activity.

It’s been a whole year:
I just wanted to make a note that last week; I officially hit the year mark at the church. I am so thankful to be a part of such a loving and caring congregation. The year has truly flown by, and I am excited to continue to spend the future with you all
-Dustin


 
If you know anyone who might be interested in joining us,
please give me a call! I would love to reach out to them!

This year’s date is 12/9/17 –
ONLY 3 short weeks away!

Please consider adopting an item off of the specific needs tree! The tree is now set up in the Narthex. The ornament tags on the tree represent specific needed items that need to be adopted and purchased for CFO families. There are two tags on each ornament. One one tag, write your name and the date you picked it up and drop it in the basket next to the tree. One the second tag, remove and take with you. Once your gift is purchased, attach this tag to the gift so that it can be matched up to the correct family. Please return all gifts – unwrapped – with the tags attached as soon as possible, but no later than Sunday, December 3rd.

Thank you,
