As hard as it seems right now, spring is just around the corner!! With spring comes a very busy schedule at FCS! Be sure to mark your calendar for these exciting activities and programs that will soon be upon us:

March 18……………. Spring program in FCS gym

April 10……………… Christian Education Sunday

April 11-15……… Regional Student Convention

Hot Lunches

We are still looking for someone to make lunches on Tuesday in March and April. If you would like to volunteer to make lunches for one of these months, please call the office.

Report Cards

You will find the 2nd Quarter report cards in the envelope. There is a separate attendance report due to the fact that the absences and tardies are not showing on the report cards. If your child does not have an attendance report with the report card, they have no absences or tardies for the 2nd Quarter.

3rd Quarter Change

Due to the two snow days, we have decided to extend the first week of Quarter 3 till January 29. The 3rd Quarter will now end on March 24.

One night when Robert Louis Stevenson was a small boy, his nanny called him to come to bed. Oblivious to her summons, he was staring outside his nursery window. The nanny walked over, stood at his shoulder and inquired patiently, “Robert, what are you looking at?” The little boy, without taking his eyes away from the window exclaimed in wonder as he pointed to the lamplighter who was lighting the street lamps, “Look, Nanny, that man is putting holes in the darkness!”  Surely as we let our light shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify God, we also can put some holes in the darkness of men (Matthew 5:16).     –Submitted & edited by Margie Reis from flip calendar by Anne Graham Lotz

Feb 6 & 7, Sat & Sun, Marriage Seminar with Jason Reed – Sign-up sheet on bulletin board for couples that plan to attend.

Note from Kenny & Lonell serving in Australia with YWAM:  G’day mate (typical Australian greeting). Hello from the land down under.  Thank you all for your prayers.  We arrived safely in Townsville Australia and have settled in and can call our little dorm “home.”  Kenny is loving the hot and humid weather. I on the other hand am adjusting to it, but I do miss the snow.  Kenny is helping with the construction and remodeling of the new dorms.  I am cooking in the kitchen, and Monday mornings I help with the kids’ ministry.  We have about a half hour walk to church Sunday mornings so I don’t think I will complain about having to park two blocks away @ Fairview!!!   God bless Yall.    - Kenny and Lonell Martin
