WELCOME TO FELLOW SHI P !
LET EVERY HEA RT P REPA RE HIM R O O M
FMC P ubl ication s
As much as we may love this time of year, it’s easy to let festivities and
expectations crowd our calendars as well as our hearts.
We can keep ourselves so busy there seems to be no room or time for
Jesus. What if God is longing to speak to us, to work in our hearts? We
chase so many activities, we run the risk of not slowing
down long enough to hear Him or to listen.
Chris tmas gift s to re
This year can be different. To help you with that, we have created an
Advent reading guide called, “Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room.” It is a
plan of daily scripture readings designed to guide you through the Advent
season, inviting Jesus into the deep places of your heart. Each day focuses on a character quality God desires to develop in His children.
We’re glad you’ve joined us for a special time of worship, reflection and
learning as we look toward Advent and preparing our hearts for the coming
Christmas season.
We want to help you get connected and grow at Fellowship. For more
information about what’s happening at FMC, pick up a copy of OnMission,
our bi-monthly newsletter and Thrive, our monthly ministry calendar. The
December issue of Thrive is out today. Both are available in the Atrium.
Show God’s love to families among us by helping them provide Christmas
gifts for their children. Today is the last day to pick up tags. Stop by the
Ministry counter located just inside the front doors of the
church to see how you can help.
Youth s che dul e info r mat i o n
Downtown, Fellowship’s youth worship service for 8th-12th graders, will not
be meeting next Sunday, November 30. As Thanksgiving is a family holiday,
we want to encourage youth to worship with their families.
For 25 days, beginning with November 30, commit to taking time each
day to sit with God, meditate on the scriptures and listen for what He has
for you. You will certainly be blessed and changed in the process.
Guides are included in your Weekly and are also available in the Atrium.
commo n ground
Common Ground meets every Sunday at 9:45 AM in Room 106. It is a
multi-generational, multi-cultural class designed to help followers of Jesus
dig into issues and challenges through a variety of biblically-based topics. If
you would like a place to breathe, get perspective & direction, and encourage & be encouraged by others, you are invited to attend. Common Ground
is open to anyone interested in pursuing Jesus with other people.
Th anks giv ing office ho urs
The church office will be closed Thursday, November 27 and Friday,
November 28. The office will reopen at 8 AM, Monday, December 1.
