October 2016 Newsletter
The Thanksgiving Offering benefits the Colleges, Universities, Seminaries, and Divinity Houses affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). These learning communities are an extension of the church, challenging students to understand and respond to God's call to serve.
From the very beginnings of the movement, Disciples have founded institutions of higher learning, encouraging students in their intellectual pursuits. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is still committed to higher education. Your gift to the Thanksgiving Offering helps underwrite the education of students attending one of our fourteen undergraduate institutions and our seven seminaries or divinity houses.
Thousands of students have attended the Colleges and Universities of the Christian Church receiving both a quality education and the opportunity to remain within our Disciple's heritage. Your financial gift provides scholarships and support for spiritual life offices. By giving to the Thanksgiving Offering you are investing in our students and helping keep education costs down.
THANKSGIVING DINNER AT FCC
The church would like to host a Thanksgiving dinner for our congregation after the worship service on Sunday, November 20. To ensure that all aspects of preparation and clean up are covered we are forming a Thanksgiving Dinner Committee to meet once or twice.
The church would like to provide turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and rolls with the congregation bringing side dishes and desserts. If you would like to make a monetary contribution for the turkeys, please put your money in a pew envelope and mark it "turkey" or leave it in the office.
There is a signup sheet in the narthex. Please sign up for an area where you feel that you could help out. The Thanksgiving Dinner Committee meeting has been changed to Sunday, October 23 after worship. Grab a cup of coffee and a cookie and let's talk turkey. Read the bulletin here

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
