UPCOMING EVENTS AT FCC

Stay up to date with what's going on!


Underground Church, Saturday January 18, 5pm in the Sanctuary

Underground Church travels back to our earliest Christian roots.  We seek to recapture the excitement and community of Jesus's early followers through worship that is simple yet profound, communal yet personal, comforting yet inspiring.  We live the questions much as Jesus's friends did as they sought ways to transform the world through the simple acts of a shared and loving community. 

 

Worship is informal, but we engage through the reading of a sacred text, create space to share what is on our hearts and share a simple and blessed communion meal ending our evening with song and "Spiritual Take-Out." 

 

Come as you are...This gathering is about the transformative power of opening our hearts to the Holy Spirit and to each other.  Everyone is welcome!

Congregational Meeting, January 26, after worship

There will be a Congregational Meeting on January 26th following a very special worship service to launch our 150th Year.  As members, you are also "owners" of FCC, and this is your opportunity to engage in another aspect of church life.  Agenda items will include updates on our All-In Stewardship Campaign and plans for celebrating our 150th.  Please attend so that you can be a part of the exciting activities in the year ahead.

 

Liz Donald, FCC Moderator

Come to the Cabaret ...and perform?

 

SAVE THE DATE:  February 21 & 22

On Friday and Saturday evenings, February 21 and 22, the FCC Choir will reprise their formerly-annual and much in-demand CABARET in the Guild Room, with staging, lights, and all manner of glitz!  The theme will be This Thing Called Love, and we’ll provide an array of solos, duets,  trios, quartets and ensembles, all about LOVE – extolling it, bemoaning it, anticipating it, and poking fun at it.  WANT TO PARTICIPATE? 

 

If you might like to sing, either a solo or in our ensembles, or if you have some other talent that would be helpful/enhancing to the Cabaret, please see Julie Morgan, Director of Music Ministries or contact her at jmorgan@mastervoices.org(Information about purchasing tickets will be coming soon.

Weekly Labyrinth Walks:

Wednesdays 6-8pm in the Sanctuary

The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool , a mode of “walking prayer” that invites us to go deeper in our walk with God.  Our labyrinth, modeled on one in Chartes Cathedral in France, sits as the center of our Sanctuary, a constant metaphor for our spiritual lives.  Just like the labyrinth, our lives are not linear, but filled with twists and turns.  Sometimes we make great progress, and other times we feel we are going backwards.  But if we trust in the path we will find ourselves in the center -- the heart of God.


All are welcome to take their souls out for a healing walk... no experience necessary!  Check out this lovely write up on Baristanet from the Spring 2014.


Watch this video to find out more about walking the labyrinth. If you’ve never done so come out one Wednesday evening and give it a try. It is a wonderful way to nourish your soul and spend some quiet time in prayer or meditation.
