Dear Friends and Family of FCC,

Sunday, September 15th is our annual church Homecoming Service and on behalf of the entire pastoral staff, I would like to invite you to join us.

We celebrate Homecoming each year, taking the time to look back over the blessings of the past year and forward into the future with anticipation for what the Lord is going to do in the year to come.  It is also a time for those who have been a part of our church body in the past to “come home” and join us to celebrate their time as a part of our congregation.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Back to Church Invitation

Dear Church,

Next Sunday, September 17th, is our annual “Back to Church Sunday”. Summer is winding down, the kids are heading back to school and we are kicking off our Fall season with a special service and time of fellowship.

After a time away, such as many of us have had this summer, it is good to come back together and remember who we are and what we believe.

We are united under the Gospel of Jesus Christ as one body. We have common beliefs, purposes and goals, and spending time together strengthens our bonds, drawing us closer together and helping each of us to sharpen our faith “…as iron sharpens iron.” (Proverbs 27:17 NIV) Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Magnets and Mothers? Invitation to Mother’s Day Service

Warm Greetings!

A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: ” My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I pick up things. What am I?” When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost 50 percent of the students answered the question with the word Mother.

Resurrection Greetings!

Luke 24:6-7 (NKJV) 6 He is not here, but is risen! Remember how He spoke to you when He was still in Galilee, 7 saying, ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.’ ”

Can you imagine what it must have been like for Mary and Martha along with certain other women to hear those words from the Angel at the tomb of Jesus? The range of emotions went from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high as the news of the resurrection of Christ began to register first in their minds, then it moved to their hearts and finally made its way to their feet as they soon would be running to tell the Disciples!

Invitation to Mother’s Day Service

Invitation Mother’s Day Service

Greetings in Christ!

We are looking forward to celebrating Mother’s Day on (DATE) at (TIME) here at (NAME OF CHURCH), and we would like to be sure to invite you and your family to join us! We realize there is a wide range of emotions on Mother’s Day, and while we do our best to be sensitive to this, we also believe it is of great importance that we take time to celebrate Mothers and the wonderful gift they are to families.

There’s a wonderful little story on the impact a Godly Mother makes on a child and how it can carry them through times of great challenge to their faith, especially as they leave home and begin to make their way in the world. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Good Friday Service Invitation

Good Friday Service Invitation

Dear (INSERT NAME),

When I was a child, I was always confused by the phrase “Good Friday.” Usually, we don’t look upon the death of a loved one and call it “good.”  On the contrary, we grieve and mourn for the loss of life. That being said, how could the day of our Savior’s violent death be called good? Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Maundy Service Invitation Letter

Dear (INSERT NAME),

Maundy Thursday is approaching. The term Maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum, or commandment—but what does this have to do with Maundy Thursday?

As the circumstances of Holy Week continue to grow dark and intense, it’s easy to forget which event happened on which day.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
