NEW BIBLE STUDY FOR WOMEN STARTS THIS WEEK!  Ladies, join us in the Café Room #9 this Thursday, April 20th @ 9:30AM as Karen Cassidy leads us in our new study  Elijah: Obedience in a Threatening World. 

We’ll examine Elijah’s life as he experienced God’s faithfulness and provision and we’ll discover how we can obey and follow God even with our weaknesses.  Childcare is available for this class.  
 

 MOVIE NIGHT FOR KIDS – On April 21 Faith Community Church will be showing “The Secret Life of Pets” at 6:30pm. bring your bike or Big Wheel to decorate for the FCC Annual Drive-In Movie. If you don’t have a bike just bring a cardboard box and we will help you decorate your “vehicle” for the “Drive-in Movie.” If you don’t want to “Drive” just bring a blanket and decorate your “parking space”. At the very least come out and enjoy a movie, and bring a snack to share. Ages: Kindergarten to 5th Grade. 

THE “MAKE IT CLEAR!!” SEMINAR is a tool Dean Chollar has been teaching around the world that contains practical teaching on how to creatively share our faith in Christ.  Most of us struggle with talking to people about spiritual things. We want to talk to others about our faith, but often find it difficult because we are afraid, or we just don’t know how. Well, after this time with Dean you will be able to make it clear! The heart of the seminar gives clear instruction on four of the most important concepts in evangelism and more than ten different methods for sharing the gospel. It closes with a lesson on how to respond to questions and objections that people might raise. The seminar will be offered on Saturday, April 22 from  9:30AM-2:30P with lunch, snacks and drinks provided.  There is a $10 fee to cover the cost of materials.  The sign-up sheet is in the foyer.  

 

NEWCOMERS’ FELLOWSHIP – On April 23rd, we would like to honor all those who have begun attending FCC in the last 6 months with an informal get-acquainted time and light lunch in Activity Room #1. Sign up in the church foyer or email us at: office@faithcommunity.net. Please include all family members so we can prepare accordingly. Child Care provided.
