There is absolutely never a dull moment here at First Congregational Church. Summer may not be officially over yet according to the calendar, but we are definitely moving full steam ahead into fall activites here at FCC. This week marks the start of our fall programming and a lot is happening on Sunday!
First, we will be transitioning to our fall/winter service schedule. We will offer a more traditional service at 8:00 a.m. Followed by a short time of fellowship around 9:00 a.m. Sunday School for all ages at 9:20 a.m. and a contemporary service at 10:30 a.m. Our goal is to be a church that meets the needs of everyone! We hope you will join us for one of our worship services and stick around for Sunday school as well.
All of our kids through high school Sunday school classes will be moving up to their 2017-2018 school grade level classes this Sunday. Preschool through 5th meets in our kids Sunday school area and begins with a 10-15 minute opening time. The the 6th grade, middle school (grades 7-8), and high school (grades 9-12) will all meet on the newer lower level in various classrooms.
We are also excited to be offering three (two new and one continuing) adult Sunday school classes starting this Sunday.
Classic Christianity with Eric Johnson
In Classic Christianity, you’ll see the way back to the life Jesus provided—a life free from the bondage of law, lived in the newness of His Spirit, and secrete in His love.
Continued study of Revelation with Travis Williamson
Bible Study for 20’s & 30’s with Steve & Lonna Debner
A Bible study of the books of Ezra & Nehemiah. These books tell a story of Ezra going back to teach the laws of God to those who didn’t know them and Nehemiah going back to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. These events took place after the Israelites’ exile to Babylon and tie closely in with the story of Haggai. This study will take us a little deeper in Old Testament bible history.
There is surely something that will appeal to everyone…JOIN US!
Finally, we will be voting to add the position of a Youth Pastor to our staff. This is something that we have been praying over and discussing as a church family for many years. We feel as though the Lord is moving us in the direction to take our youth ministry to the next level. The congregation has been asked to pray about the possibility of this position and a vote as to whether or not to move forward will be held during each of the services on Sunday.
Have a great weekend….see you Sunday!
