Union Gospel Mission Thanksgiving Bags

Before you leave church this Sunday, consider bringing home a grocery bag to fill to help us make Thanksgiving a reality for families around the Twin Cities again this year. FCC is partnering with Union Gospel Mission (UGM) to provide all of the fixings (except the turkey) for those in need. Our goal is to provide 250 meals to UGM this year. The list of needed items is: 2 cans of whole kernel corn, 2 cans of green beans, 1 bag (1 or 2 lbs) of white rice, 2 cans of peas, 1 can of sweet potatoes, 1 box of stuffing. Bags are due back at FCC on November 16.

New Server Schedules for October through December are available at the Welcome Center or on our website; ( >here ).

Life Groups meet the third Sunday of each month at 11am (September to May). ( >more ).

Book Share, located on the shelves to the left of the Welcome Center, is growing thanks to those who have already donated books. Our purpose is that you have the opportunity to read some of these books. Just borrow, read and return them. There is also a space for children’s books. We welcome your book donations! Books should be current or classic, wholesome, and in good condition. Leave them in the large basket so they can be tagged. Thanks! Marilyn Ash and Kay Carlson.

Meal Ministry: If you are interested in being a part of a newly formed meal ministry by making and delivering a meal to a family experiencing a significant life event, please sign up at the Welcome Center or contact Rachel Verdoorn at rachelverdoorn@gmail.com.
