A Celebration of Sally's 60 Years

On October 11th, our congregation will gather in the Sanctuary for a wonderful worship service of music featuring Sally Lewis playing the organ, piano, harpsichord, and directing the Bell Choir, as a celebration of her 60 years of music ministry at FCC.

Following the worship service, a special recognition of Sally's accomplishment will take place in the Sanctuary.

We encourage everyone to bring cards and letters of appreciation for Sally.  A card basket will be located at the Welcome Center in the narthex. 

There will be no contemporary service this Sunday, as we are encouraging everyone to worship together in the sanctuary for this glorious occasion. 

Sally's special recognition will also be live-streamed following the worship service.
Prayers Needed

Please join us as we lift up these individuals and families in prayer, and as we continue to pray for all those affected by this uncertain and difficult time.
