UPCOMING EVENTS AT FCC

Stay up to date with what's going on!


Bible Study is on hiatus until further notice .....

Our Weekly Labyrinth Walk is on Wednesdays 6-8pm in the Sanctuary

Come take your soul for a healing walk ...with a wonderful group of " labyrinth keepers" to guide you and answer your questions.


If you’ve never walked the labyrinth come out and give it a try. It is a wonderful way to nourish your soul and spend some quiet time in prayer or meditation, or just some quiet time.


The labyrinth is open from 6 to 8 pm every Wednesday evening  except for Thanksgiving eve and the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Each week two dedicated “Labyrinth Keepers” are present to help you get started or to answer your questions.


Go to our "Worship/Walk the labyrinth" tab to learn more and to see a video on the labyrinth. Hope to see you soon.

New Member classes begin February 10

...following worship!

If you’ve been attending FCC and feel we may be your spiritual home please join us for our New Members’ classes this winter.  In three, one hour sessions (Feb. 10, 17 and 24) we will discuss how we believe, the history of the UCC and what it means to become a member of this church.  It’s a great way to learn more about us and meet the wonderful folks who are interested in joining as well.

New members will be received in worship on March 17.


Child care is available upon request. Please RSVP to Rev. Ann acralosky@msn.com


Join us for Messy Church's 2nd annual Black History Month in poetry celebration! February 13, 6-8 in the Guild Room

As is our tradition we will feed both our bodies and souls with a soul food meal, a brief time of worship and then an amazing night of poetry.  Poets and lovers of poetry are equally welcome to present. Bring a copy of a favorite poem by a Black poet or select one to read from the poems that will be onhand.  We also welcome original poems related to our Black History month theme. If you don't want to get on stage no worries we need an adoring audience as well!
 
Last year we had a full house for this amazing night of celebration through poetry and we hope you can join us!  Please CLICK HERE TO RSVP (and also to note if you are bringing a food contribution.)

 

Donations and food contributions welcome, but not necessary. All are welcome!  Please contact Kathleen Korgen korgenk@gmail.com if you have any questions

 

Messy Church FAQs:

 

What is Messy Church? Messy church is a time to join together with FCC friends for a meal, a brief time of prayer and singing, and socializing. 
 
What can I expect? This is a low key event so there will be time for plenty of socializing, dinner, brief group singing and prayer (words to songs provided or taught), and an activity.   
 
Who can come to Messy Church? Everyone is welcome at Messy Church! Friends and members of FCC, friends of friends, young and old, outgoing or shy; you get the idea. This is an easy event to invite friends to who maybe are curious about FCC but aren't ready to attend a Sunday service. All are welcome!
 
Do I have to RSVP to attend? RSVPing does help us know how much food to order but in the event that you can join us last minute and you haven't been able to RSVP, you are still welcome!
 
What can I bring? We will provide the main course (fried chicken this month). By clicking onto the Sign Up Genius link above you can sign up to bring a salad, dessert or other side dish. Homemade and store bought sides are equally welcome. If bringing a side is not something you can do - no worries, join us either way.

Join us on Wednesday, February 20th at 7:00pm for our next FCC Book Club conversation and refreshments.

“The Overstory,” by National Book Award winner Richard Powers (his twelfth novel,) is a book for all readers who despair of humanity’s self-imposed separation from the rest of creation and who hope for the transformative, regenerating possibility of a homecoming. If the trees of this earth could speak, what would they tell us? "Listen. There’s something you need to hear." (synopsis from Goodreads.com) 

 

FCC Member Mike Magdalenski is facilitating this group at his home.  We'd like to make it both a literary and social evening, so we invite pot luck contributions or light refreshments and beverages as well.  We'll gather at 7:00 with some social time and begin book discussion at 7:30pm. 

 

Please contact Mike to RSVP by Sunday, February 17th: michael.magdalenski@gmail.com
