It’s back to school time and we are kicking off FCC’s Annual School Supply Drive. We will collect donations at Drive-In Communion on the following Sundays: August 9th, 16th and 23rd. If we are able to resume meeting back in church during this time, then we will collect your donations in the narthex. With current unemployment issues and many families with reduced incomes, the need is bigger than ever this year. Your donations help families, students and teachers!
Thank you!
