Worship Service - 9:30 am; Education Hour - 10:45 am
June 24, 10:00-11:30 am (Note beginning time change)
Worship – Join us as we celebrate with the Weekend Choral Festival participants. It will be a musical worship service. Mark Bartel, our conductor, has chosen the theme of Transformation. The idea of transformation takes off on the fact that both singers and listeners are transformed in a unique way through experiences of music-making.
Worship – ‘Seeking the Welfare of your neighbor.’ Duncan Smith will share from his work as Outreach Consultant and stories of what it might look like for FMC to be a neighbor and a partner.
FMC WELCOMING STATEMENT
We are an open and affirming congregation which seeks to live the teachings of Jesus.
We believe every person is created uniquely in the image of God, and we — regardless of these unique differences — welcome all into our church family.
- We welcome persons of every gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, age, physical or emotional ability, immigration status, economic situation, and family composition.
- We welcome persons regardless of where they may be on their spiritual journey.
- We invite all to participate in the full life and ministry of our church (i.e., baptism, communion, marriage, leadership).
We believe that historical oppression continues, and we commit to continued discussion on how to recognize and stop our own oppressive acts.
Our desire is to embrace all in the name of Christ.
“We believe there are hidden seeds of greater wholeness in everyone and everything.”
