2016 Church Calendars are here – there is one in each mailbox.  If you don’t have a mailbox or need an additional calendar, look for them on the bulletin rack.  Special thanks to Doris Good for each month’s artwork.  Take time to look at the lists at the back of the church calendar and mark any assignments for hostess, greeter, topics and/or teaching children.  The 2016 offering schedule is also printed at the back of the calendar.

Sylvia,

Thanks for all the hard work you did on the calendar.  You did a great job! Thanks for your work on the bulletin each week. Many blessings to you!

Marcus – for the FMC Family

Re-enrollment

The time to re-enroll students at FCS is fast approaching. Re-enrollment forms will be sent home at the end of January. We will need the forms returned as soon as possible. You will need to be current with your balance to re-enroll.

If you have a child entering kindergarten next fall, please call the office by January 15.

Thanks so much for all your hard work in the trash-a-thon.  We were able to raise $17,096.  This will greatly aid the student activity fund and help to keep your tuition down.  We are already looking forward to next year.  Plan to be a part of it!

Lunches

We still have Tuesdays and Thursdays in February open for lunches. If you would like to make lunches one of these days, please call the office.

 

Just One Request

Dear Master, for this coming year

Just one request I bring:

I do not pray for happiness,

Or any earthly thing—

I do not ask to understand

The way Thou leadest me,

But this I ask: Teach me to do

The thing that pleaseth Thee.

I want to know Thy guiding voice,

To walk with Thee each day.

Dear Master, make me swift to hear

And ready to obey.

And thus the year I now begin

A happy year will be—

If I am seeking just to do

The thing that pleaseth Thee.
