A Pastor’s Perspective

Thank You! – For all of your prayers, calls, texts, and cards after I experienced some heart rate issues and spent a few days in the hospital last week. Things are better, and all that is left is the all of the follow-up appointments!

More Thanks! – One of the things I love about being here at FCC is the willingness to answer a call to help. Last week’s snow created problems for our parking lot, sidewalks, and front entrances. We put out a call to get these areas cleared for Jim Sharp’s funeral service last Saturday. Check out these pics of our snow (and ice) team! They showed up and made our property safe! Pictured here are Mark Benge, Benny Gilbert, Denise Jenks, Mark Reid, David Suffridge, Rosemary Suffridge, Mitchell Taylor. Thanks to the crew!
