A Pastor’s Perspective

What a great week we had last week here at FCC, as our Vacation Bible School brought back sounds of kids and adults playing, singing, and learning about the wonders of God to our hallways and gym once again! A special thanks to Pat Wiseman and her entire crew for making this a very special experience for us all!

Our VBS continues an active summer! Our youth and children have been part of our regional camping program. Our youth shared God’s love to others on their mission trip to Rogers, AR.  We expanded our worship experiences to show the great diversity and talent we have here. Dedicated teachers continue learning opportunities through Sunday School classes. We have even expanded our pickleball experience by adding a second court to allow more playing time for everyone! 

On top of that, our summer has been full of landscape volunteers, under the direction of Tom Hill, keeping our plants watered during the oppressive heat. Mark Reid and the property group have kept the building maintained, and are continually addressing the needs of our property. Church gatherings are being planned. Mitsy Martin Davis keeps our outreach dept. busy reaching out beyond our walls as we continue to make a difference in so many areas!  

Thanks to all who make these things happen each and every week!

I will be out of the office this week, and will look forward to being back with you on August 10!  During that time, many thanks to Shauna for her leadership and her filling the pulpit last Sunday! Be sure to be here this Sunday (August 7) as Bradley Havenar will preach. Bradley grew up in this church, and returns to share his gifts for ministry with us once again. He is also the grandson of Carol Hamilton!

May Peace be your Journey!


We hope to see YOU there!
