You Are Welcome Here
Bible Study is held Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Rev. George leads us in an interesting comparative analysis and discussion of the Bible. No experience required. Everyone is welcome.
Sunday School Schedule: Be sure to note on your calendar that since it’s Spring Break week, we will have no Sunday School on Sunday, March 8 and Sunday, March 15. Our children and youth will be joining the adults upstairs for the 10:30 worship service on those two days.
Be a Part of FCC’s Christian Education Ministry. We’re in need of a new teacher for the Youth class next year (5th-8th grade), and would like that person to transition this spring. Since that would mean you’ll begin teaching April 19, 2015, we’re hoping you’ll be able to work with Kathy Bailey for the first part of April to become familiar with the curriculum and get to know the children.
We have enough curriculum set for the whole year next year—and it’s one the youth are really enjoying, with modern movie clips and current cultural references. If you believe that one of the most important functions of a church is to guide our children and youth toward a life guided by Jesus’ teaching, come spend some time with them each week as they make this journey. You probably already know that you’ll learn as much or more from them as they will from you. If you’re interested, sit down with a member of the Christian Education Board soon.
On Sunday, March 22, the Membership Board invites you to the Dine and Mind. Come enjoy a light supper at 6:00 pm in Cary Mead Hall, which will be followed by Robin Cooke sharing some of her vast information about medications (she’s a pharmacist, by profession). The evening will include plenty of time for your questions, of course.
Sunday, March 29, 2015, Palm Sunday, commemorates Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem. According to the Bible accounts, the crowds shouted hosannas and placed palm branches in the road before him as Jesus rode into the city on the back of a humble donkey. We celebrate the day with palms and a special program for our children. 10:30 am.
On Thursday, April 2, Maundy Thursday, everyone is encouraged to gather again in Cary Mead Hall at 6:00 pm for a “Family Haggadah,” or Seder. This is the traditional meal that Jews have been sharing for more than 3,000 years, and will help us have an experience that is something like what would have been part of Jesus’ and the Disciples’ lives on the day of The Last Supper.
On Good Friday, April 3, at 12:00 pm there will be a reading of the seven last words interspersed with silent meditation to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus. You are invited to come spend an hour in quiet reflection and meditation on the death of this good man and what it means to your life today.
Kid’s Kitchen Cans: Thank you to all who contributed 78 cans for Elgin Jones’ 75th birthday and also for everyone who helped deliver them February 25.
Memorial Baby Blankets are requested for the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and Providence. When a baby dies in the NICU, the nurses give the parents a special memorial baby blanket. This is a chance for knitters, crocheters, quilters to share some of your love for grieving families with your hand crafted baby blankets.
We Support F.I.S.H.: Please put canned fruit, soup, or packages of powdered milk in your shopping cart next time you are at the store and bring them to the plastic bins in the narthex. Especially needed is baby formula, canned fruit, and packets of oatmeal or dry cereal.
