Not since World War II has the world seen the numbers of refugees we are seeing today.
This years One Great Hour of Sharing campaign is focused on the plight of refugees in Syria and through out the world. There are more than 50 million refugees displaced from their homes globally.
In addition to relieving the suffering for refugees in the refugee camps in the middle east, OGHS helps to provide food, clean water and disaster relief both domestically and through out the world. This includes relief efforts from the Category 5 Typhon in Fiji to the Christmas flooding in St. Louis MO and the water crisis in Flint Michigan.
The OGHS appeal will run from April 17 through Mothers Day May 8. You can write a check to FCC with OGHS or the Refugee Taskforce in the memo line.
You can also donate directly to our local FCC RefugeeOne Taskforce through the link below.
Thank you for your compassion and generosity.

By popular demand, the first DVD from the series "The Meaning of Life: Perspectives from the World's Great Intellectual Traditions" is now available in the Banner Library. As our adult discussions move through these 30-minute lectures by Professor Garfield of Smith College, participants have asked to see lectures they've missed. This DVD is added to a small collection of materials our group has used in the last few years, and can be found on the second-from-the-bottom shelf next to the door to the office kitchen. The DVD includes a lecture on "The meaning of the meaning of life," 3 lectures on the Bhagavad-Gita, and the first 2 lectures on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics.
On Sunday, December 13th, we view and discuss "Stoicism - Rationality and Acceptance."
Looking for a important way to serve your church, even with the limited time you have? Consider being a Sunday morning usher. You'll arrive 15 minutes early, once every five weeks, and stay a few minutes after the service to pick up Friendship Pad sheets and left-behind bulletins. Greeting
