This Weekend ~ December 30-31

Greetings FMC family. ¡Saludos a todos At the beginning of a New Year we are reminded of God’s overwhelming intent to be with us, in God’s son, Emmanuel. May the assurance of this hope bring light to our darkness! Al celebrar la Navidad, recordamos el propósito de Dios de vivir ‘con nosotros,’ en su hijo, Emanuel. ¡Que esta esperanza ilumine nuestra oscuridad, ahora y al iniciar otro año nuevo!

Saturday, Dec 30, 7-10 pm. Youth Christmas party at the church. Bring a wrapped gift from your stash or Thrift store (value $10) for a fun exchange, games and snacks to share. Bethany, Noel & Julia will be there.

Les animamos a celebrar el año nuevo en familia. No habrá culto en la iglesia.  

9:30-10:30 amNo Faith Formation classes this weekend.
10:45 am – Let it be new! Nancy Brubaker preaching. We come to the Table of our Lord, to be nourished at the beginning of a new year.
Este domingo @ 10:45 am. Otro año termina, y uno nuevo se cierne, en la plenitud del tiempo de Dios. Al igual que los pastores, ¿cómo podemos guardar silencio? Confiamos en la salvación de Dios y damos voz a nuestras esperanzas para el año nuevo, cuando venimos a la mesa de nuestro Señor.

Year end giving as we come up to the end of the year, we are running a deficit just under $15,000. What can you give by this Sunday, to help us finish out the year well? Thank you for your generousity at this year end time, as well as throughout the year.  

NEXT weekend — Giving Commitment for 2018We ask that you prayerfully consider your giving intentions for 2018. Please complete the attached insert and place it in the offering plate next weekend, or in another week’s offering plate of your choosing or into Kathy Albrecht’s mailbox. Yellow paper copies available at the North Foyer Information table. This exercise is important for two reasons:

  1. It encourages everyone to prayerfully consider their giving plans.
  2. It gives our church valuable information so that we can establish a responsible financial plan for the coming year. Please be assured that your Personal Giving Commitment is confidential.
