February is #10 can collection for Kids' Kitchen month. February 21st is Elgin Jones's 76th birthday, and FCC is once again honoring his dedication to providing free meals for children by collecting #10 cans of fruits and vegetables. We will assemble the cans in the Narthex starting January 31st through the month of February. Our goal is 76 cans-- we can do it! If you would rather donate $, we will have a basket and someone will purchase the cans for you. We have invited Elgin to join us in church on Sunday, February 21 to celebrate his birthday and to let him know how much we support his good work in our community.
Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper February 9, 6 pm. We need volunteers! Please let Kate know (272-8363) if you can help set up, serve, and/or clean up.
The Lenten Season. On February 10, we will begin the 40 days of preparation for Easter. We will begin our observance of Lent with an Ash Wednesday Service, 8:00 pm, on February 10. Then, every Tuesday evenings at 5:30 from February 16 through March 22, we will hold a series of Taize-style services. The services will include Taize or similar musical chants, silence times, and Bible and/or other readings. Please contact Lynn Barber or Kathy Means through the Church if you wish to play an instrument during any of the services.
Holy Week begins with a March 20 Palm Sunday service, followed by our annual bean-a-fit potluck for Bean's Cafe. We will gather for our annual Tenebrae Service at 8:00 pm on Maundy Thursday, March 24 and at noon on Good Friday March 25 for an hour of prayer and meditation. That evening, from 6-8 pm, Clear Water Church will hold a Good Friday service in our Meeting House (Sanctuary); everyone is welcome to join them. On Sunday, March 27, we will have a joyous Easter service.
Bible Study is held Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. Rev. George leads us in an interesting comparative analysis and discussion of the Bible, focusing on that Sunday's scripture readings and the sermon. No experience required. Everyone is welcome.
We Support F.I.S.H.: Please put non-perishable fruit, soup, or canned or packets of powdered milk in your cart next time you are shopping and bring them to the plastic bins in the narthex marked for F.I.S.H. Another way you can help is by saving your egg cartons; they get eggs donated in bulk and need the cartons for distributing to needy families.
. On April 24-26, 2015, Rev. Patty Haheim led our congregation in a workshop to help revitalize our church. Click here
