Outreach Opportunity - MacMurray College Move In Day

Here at FCC, we have a 3D Vision (Discover, Develop, Deploy). Every August almost 600 college students pack up their belongings, say 'goodbye' to mom and dad, and head to MacMurray College to work towards their goal of getting a college degree. Leaving home is never easy, and once the students arrive on campus they are tasked with getting all of their possessions into the room that they will call home for the next 9 months. On August 26 from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. we want to deploy onto the campus of MacMurray and help make this transition a little easier on the students. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus to these students by helping in a practical way. We would like to be available to carry furniture, rugs, mini-fridges, and other items into the dorms, give them a Welcome to Jacksonville bag and simply let them know if they do not have a church home they are welcome here. If you are interested in helping for this event, please sign up by calling the Church Office at 243-6445

Meet at FCC at 9:50 a.m.. If you have a dollie, please bring it with you!.

Starting Over - sermon series

We all have regrets. Many of them come from our attempts to fulfill unmet longing. The problem is many of us get stuck in an endless cycle of longing and regret, unable to move forward. Our hope is that we would all come to see that God is big enough to redeem even our worst regrets. He can use everything for a greater good. On Sunday, September 10, we will begin a new sermon series titled Starting Over. Nothing needs to keep us from the joy and purpose of God has for our lives! We can start over and live a life beyond regret. Invite a friend who needs to hear this truth.
