Announcements

Today we welcome Gordon Brubacher will have the message from our theme verse.

 

Next week we will collect our March birthday offering, have a Good News in Outreach on Foodnet, and read from John 18.

 

Quarterly Mission Offerings for this year will be: Dove’s Nest (4/24), Jacob’s Well (7/31), and Lincoln Literacy (10/30). Thank you for your input in choosing these recipients. The other worthy suggestions will be considered next year.

 

A new church directory will be available this spring. Please contact the Stauffers with any additions or changes to cell phone numbers, addresses, emails, etc.

 

We are beginning to plan Holy Week services at FMC. We would like to know how folks would feel about a potluck-ish brunch Easter morning.

We are also wondering if folks appreciate the Good Friday service, or if we might try something different this year.

Please talk with one another, and let Dave Nickel know your thoughts on either/both idea(s).

 

FMC is looking for a delegate or two for the delegate assembly 5/27-30 in Kansas City. Please talk to Becky Waegli if you'd be interested.

 

A catechism class will begin soon. We will read God's Story, Our Story together. We will also have a session or two where we talk about baptism and church membership, so others who are interested can participate.

 

Foodnet is running low on twist ties and carry-out containers (preferably either clear or with a clear lid). Please put them in the back classroom if you have saved some. Thanks.

 

The Nurture Committee continues to fund a $100 gifting program.  Contact Christian, Steve, Becky, or Ron.

 

FMC has established a Mortgage Assistance Fund. If you would have further questions about the fund, we would encourage you to contact Christian Mukuna, Rick Stauffer, Dallas Schlegel, Jim Buller, Joel Mpolesha, or Dave Nickel. 

 

CONFREENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Pray for your sister churches in the Quad Cities area cluster: Casa de Oracion Emanuel, Iglesia Cristiana El Balsamo, Iglesia Menonita Centro Cristiano, Iglesia Torre Fuerte, Templo Alabanza and the El Buen Pastor church plant.
