Disciple Women’s Project - October 2017
We feel that with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, as well as Irma and Maria, relief efforts should be foremost in our thoughts this month. We encourage you to give through Week of Compassion. We know this group is honest and trustworthy; one hundred percent goes to the area you designate. We can’t imagine coming home to “nothing”, everything gone – home, car, food, clothes, family photos – even pets. The list is endless…No place to stay. What do you do? Thank God for loving, caring people who will share what God has given them. There but for the Grace of God go I -
Mark your envelopes “DW WOC” and make any checks payable to “Disciples Women” with memo – “Week of Compassion” Read More.
Thank you to those who contributed to the Sunbeams Preschool Chicken Dinner fundraiser last weekend. Over 300 dinners were purchased with the Preschool receiving half of the proceeds of each ticket sold. Don Dean and Jimmy Dodds were the winners of the Wal Mart gift cards. Your support is greatly appreciated!
From our Pastor:
What a wonderful September we have shared together. Thanks to everyone who made my Installation Sunday so amazing. I even got to ride in the "rumble seat" of Ron Little's beautifully refurbished Model T. The food, the ice cream, the program and Rev. Steve Martin's sermon and participation were fabulous.
CYF is so much fun - what a great bunch of kids. There is so much going on here at FCCP, it's hard to get it all in the newsletter. Sunday mornings are our best chance to share in the excitement and spread the news. This month we will focus on Generosity as we journey as
Christians together in the world. Dr. Clark Williamson reminds us that the "Good News is the promise that God's love is freely, graciously, offered to each and all; and our response is to love God with our whole being and to do justice to our neighbors as ourselves."
Following the way of Jesus includes responding to God's love with generous love for others. I think it is powerful each fall, when the abundance of harvest and blessing abound, that we take a little time to reflect on how we are called to participate and engage in this community where we live, as stewards of God's blessings.

See you at the Table!

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.
