Brothers and Sisters,
This Friday evening at 6:30pm we have the excellent opportunity to meet with Haitian pastor Dony St. Germain. Dony has served many years in gospel ministry in his home country of Haiti and serves as the president of El Shaddai Ministries International. We will have dessert and hear from Dony as he shares about the work God is doing in Haiti, in addition to the challenges the Haitian church is facing. This is not a fundraising event, but an opportunity to hear about the way the gospel is spreading among the Haitian people. There will also be time for questions. If you would like, feel free to bring a dessert to share. We will meet in room 3/4.
The sermon text for this Sunday will be Hebrews 5:11-14.
The link for this Sunday’s worship service is available here.

Assisting with Online Meal Sign-Up
Are you interested in helping facilitate the online sign-up when an FCC member/family needs meals? Once you know dietary restrictions and the frequency of meals, it is a short and simple process to enter the information online and let the FCC office know the name and password for a bulletin announcement. If you would like to know more about serving in this way, please reach out to Don Johnson..
Wetherington Family: Please pray for comfort for the Wetherington and Muzzy families; Katie’s sister, Cari, sustained serious injuries and lost a baby at 28 weeks pregnant in a car wreck last Thursday.
