This Weekend ~ February 4-5

Greetings FMC family. Please join us for worship, study and fellowship.
¡Saludos a todos! ¡Esperamos contar con su presencia este fin de semana!

To prepare for the ordination service on February 12, you are invited to reflect on your own call: What does it look like for you to live out God’s call in your everyday life? THIS SUNDAY, during our meal together, Felipe Gonzalia will be ready in the Youth room (a quiet space), to capture a few of your thoughts on film in the language of your choice.  The final results will be part of our celebrations next Sunday.
En preparación para el culto de ordenación el domingo 12 de febrero, se les invita a todos reflexionar sobre sus propios llamados: ¿Qué significa para usted vivir el llamado de Dios en su vida cotidiana? ESTE DOMINGO durante el almuerzo, Felipe Gonzalia estará disponible en el cuarto de los jóvenes para grabar, en video, nuestras respuestas. Los resultados formarán una parte de la celebración la semana entrante!

Sábado, 4 de febrero @ 5:00 PM
¡Nos reunimos otra vez donde Delmy y Noé Rivera para iniciar el mes con un tiempo de oración y canción… y una comida estilo potluck! Favor de traer algo para compartir. ¡Bienvenidos todos y todas!

10:45 amWorship takes us into Matthew 5:13-16 and Isaiah 58:1-9. Genuine faith is pleasing to God, but Isaiah points to “indulgent spirituality” which disconnects from God’s purposes. These are considerations as we enter into our afternoon decision-making around finances. Nancy Brubaker preaching.
Noon — Hispanic fund-raising chili lunch.
