Worship Service - 9:30 am; Education Hour - 10:45 am
Worship – Charlie Ferguson will preach from Isaiah 2:1-5 and Matthew 5:38-48. The world is in turmoil and a pretty scary place today. There are currently 61 active areas of conflict in the world. There have been 352,000 deaths combined so far in 2018. What would happen if our young men were suddenly called to war? Are we ready? Can we still call ourselves a recognized peach church?
Adult Education – none
December 2- First Sunday of Advent
Worship – Over the next four weeks of Advent we have permission to dream and to hope- after all, this is a season of expectation! Pastor Glenn will preach from Jeremiah 33:14-16.
Adult Education – Updates from the FMC Leadership Board including the search for a second pastor and organizational/governance structure. There will also be time to approve the 2019 Ministry Plan.
FMC Welcoming Statement
We are an open and affirming congregation which seeks to live the teachings of Jesus.
We believe every person is created uniquely in the image of God, and we — regardless of these unique differences — welcome all into our church family.
- We welcome persons of every gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, age, physical or emotional ability, immigration status, economic situation, and family composition.
- We welcome persons regardless of where they may be on their spiritual journey.
- We invite all to participate in the full life and ministry of our church (i.e., baptism, communion, marriage, leadership).
We believe that historical oppression continues, and we commit to continued discussion on how to recognize and stop our own oppressive acts.
Our desire is to embrace all in the name of Christ.
“We believe there are hidden seeds of greater wholeness in everyone and everything.”
