Worship Service- 9:30 am
Education Hour- 10:45 am
September 22- Great Getaway Weekend
Worship: One service, two locations. Nelson Mandela is credited with saying that “something always seems impossible until it’s done.” Sometimes our pursuit toward peace seems unrealistic. Sometimes we cannot imagine how it might be achieved. And yet, we are called to pursue peace even if and when it does not make sense. And sometimes amazing and wondrous things happen when our conduct is worthy of the gospel of Christ (Philippians 1:27). September 22 has been set aside as Peace Sunday. We will focus on those times when the peace of Christ surpasses what we may perceive as impossible- in short, a peace that surpasses all understanding.
Worship: How are we supposed to treat others? Does God’s love really extend to all? When given a choice we are called to love radically and inclusively. Join us as we explore Luke 6:27-28.
Adult Education: Outreach grant recipient Ivanna Johnson will give an update on the school supply drive for local students and classrooms.
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.”
