First Sunday Welcome Party
Dec. 3rd at 10:30 in the cafe
On the first Sunday of each month we host a Welcome Party at 10:30 in the cafe (look for signs in the lobby). We'll have some light refreshments together and you'll get to meet several of our pastors and ministry leaders. They'll share some of the things that are going on and especially focus on good ways for you to start getting connected to others at Fellowship.

We are looking for unused gloves, socks and travel size hygiene items such as soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hand sanitizer, wipes, lotion, razors, hand warmers and tampons/pads.

What to bring: Whatever project you are currently working on at home. Not working on something? Bring something to start, Christmas cards to write or presents to wrap!
Upcoming IF events - Nov. 27th.
This is an extra special IF:Table we're calling "Friendsgiving". We'll be sharing a potluck meal together and especially focusing on everything we have to be thankful for, including one-anther.
There is also childcare included for infants to 5 years. Please let us know if you plan to bring your children.
Please sign up below to let us know you're coming and to tell us what you'd like to bring to share.
What is IF: Table ?
A place to gather women and share a simple dessert and dive deep with people over real stories and Christ centered conversations. A time for a whole lot of laughter – and maybe a few tears – but time spent that leaves us with glad hearts. Full hearts. Grateful hearts.
We're inviting you to join us once a month in the FCC lobby. There is NO fee, but if you'd like to bring a dessert to share that is more than welcomed!
The vision is: 6 women per table, 4 questions, 2 hours (Based on Acts 2:46). We'll provide the questions and will help pair you up with ladies to connect with. You just have to show up and bring dessert if you desire!
Simple, meaningful connections!

Thinking Like a Christian - Seminar
January 12 evening and January 13 morning
Childcare through 10 years provided.
I am extremely excited about this class, and nervous about it as well. I am nervous, because we are raising and addressing some of the most challenging questions facing Christians today. But, I am excited, because I feel we need to take these topics head on, even when we find that we don't agree on our responses to all of them.
This seminar is designed to help us "think like Christians". Our conclusions on some issues, our convictions on some practices, and our way of responding to some questions from people around us, may not all be the same. But, there are principles that are foundationally Christian, that are ancient/timeless and true, that need to be applied to all the above. It is those principles we will be addressing and trying to flesh out thru discussion together.
We will be watching and discussing video clips, both from popular movies, and from talks of leading cultural influencers. We will have focused times to discuss these topics in both smaller groups and the large group sessions. If you have been in conversations with classmates, teachers, co-workers, relatives, and/or friends about gender/sexuality questions, the exclusivity of Christianity, atheism, science and the Bible, a good God and evil in the world, immigration, gun control, racial tensions, how to know God's will, etc, etc., I invite you to join us for this Friday evening, Saturday morning seminar. We will not give exhaustive answers to these questions, but we hope to provide a biblical framework, centered in Jesus' teaching, to address them.
This is our 2nd time offering this course. The course will include changes in content, based on new cultural issues that have become prominent. Two years ago 300 adults attended this course!
Childcare is offered for this course up through 10 years. Please also register your children so we can have enough childcare workers.
