promote fellowship among church members and visitors at FCC.

also families and groups of friends.

If interested in hosting a specific Sunday, look for the sign-up sheet posted
on the bulletin board in the hallway near the balcony stairs.

Any questions may be directed to the church office
or Deacon Chairperson, Claire Boyce.
