A new year is off to a fast start and we don’t want you left behind! Here is an update on what the leadership is working on:
SEARCH UPDATE: The leadership is putting a high priority on the search for our next lead minister. As anticipated, several additional resumes were received during and just after the advent season. While we will continue to accept and evaluate resumes until a minister is selected, a soft deadline for accepting resumes is January 15, 2020. The search committee is busy listening to sermons and checking the social media of the candidates that have applied and will present to the elders their top candidates to interview. We will not settle for a minister that God is not leading us too. Should none of the current applicants be the right fit for our church the search will continue until the right person is found.
ANNUAL REPORT: We are again preparing an annual report which should be ready for distribution at the All Church Pizza Potluck on February 9. This report will again be a summary of the ministries of 2019 as well as the financial highlights. As a teaser, I will tell you that God is good and our church is blessed, our financial giving exceeded our MAP need by more than $27,000. Praise the Lord, and thank you for your faithfulness in your financial giving.
Tonight January 13th: FEED ministry cook night at 5:30 in the new kitchen. This is a great opportunity to build relationships with your church friends and bless others who have a need.
Wednesday January 15th: First Kids Youth Group and JH Underground Student Ministry are back at 6pm.
Wednesday January 22nd: Adult Choir practice resumes at 6:30. Everyone is welcome! Come join us in singing, praising and worshiping the great God we all serve.
Sunday January 26th: New Attender Meet & Greet, at 9:30am in the sanctuary foyer. This is a great opportunity to meet our ministry staff and be given a special tour of our building. Invite your friends to join with you in learning more about what FCC is all about.
January 31st: Little Galilee Retreat for 1st-3rd grade students begins at 6pm at LGCC.
February 9th: Save the Date: All Church Pizza Potluck at 5:30 in the Family Life Center.
Finally it is with sadness that I am to inform you of the resignation of Jen Jacobs as our Financial Administrative Assistant. Jen was a great asset to our church and will be greatly missed but we wish her much success in her new position with the school district. There is not an immediate plan to replace Jen in the office with another full time paid staff. Her work load will be divided between current staff and volunteers. This plan will require a change in the church office hours which will now be Monday – Thursday from 8:30 until 4:30 and the office will be closed on Friday’s.
