“What Resurrection Does Today” is the title of Sunday’s message by Pastor Paul Rebelo on April 21, at 10:45 a.m. Sandy Reynolds will read Scripture from the Chapter of Luke 9:36-43. Assistive listening devices are available to worshipers with hearing loss during the service. Real-time captioning also is offered on many Sundays. Visitors are always welcome.

As a non-profit, the church is preparing to participate in the fifth annual Walk4Hearing on May 11 to help raise funds to make the fellowship hall hearing accessible and to replace older assistive device units currently used in the sanctuary. Join the FCC Chalice Champs and get a team T-shirt.
