FAITH, IN Action

 Don’t miss out on this

wonderful opportunity.

We’ve been growing our Faith, In Ministry Fund for nearly a year and those contributions are being matched by the Besse Cook Fund.  Combining these two sources with the generous benefit of not having to pay investment fees thanks to Johnson-Lyman Wealth Management), gives us $14,263 to work with.

 We’ve solicited our current Community Partners plus those you suggested at our Annual Meeting for a list of their needs and desires for the upcoming year and have chosen a few who would most benefit from our immediate help.

When you attend on Sunday afternoon, you will help decide exactly how much goes to each of the Community Partners we are helping the first half of this year.  (Don’t worry, the remaining Partners you selected at the Annual Meeting will receive something in the spring.)

 We are so very blessed
to be able to focus
on a ministry
that meets some
of the needs
of the
Redwood City community!

 

 

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE

February 13, 2013

12:00 noon

Chapel

You are invited to join us for a simple service of prayer and the imposition of the ashes as we begin the season of Lent.  Psalm 51 reads:  “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”   As we receive the ashes, we open our hearts to be fashioned anew.  It is a privilege and a joy to walk the path toward Easter together, as we listen together for the still-speaking God in our midst.  

 

Listen to the long stillness:
New life is stirring
New dreams are on the wing
New hopes are being readied:
Humankind is fashioning a new heart
Humankind is forging a new mind
God is at work.
This is the season of Promise.
(Howard Thurman)

 DISCERNMENT RETREAT

 at

LADERA UCC, Portola Valley
(3300 Alpine Road)

Members and friends of FCC Redwood City will meet to pray and listen and discuss God’s call for this church.  We will be led by Ron Buford, of the national UCC, and Kim Smith-Nilsson, our Chaplain.  Join us as we review and build on some of the discernment work done in our most recent past and seek to discern our next best steps as a congregation.

Dessert will be offered on Friday evening and lunch will be provided on Saturday (as well as snacks throughout the day).  Please call the Church Office (650-369-0344) or write to Kathie at kfosgett@fccredwoodcity.org to let us know you will attend so we can plan ahead for food.  We are asking that people attend both sessions of the retreat since we will be building on our work together throughout the two days.  All adult members and friends are invited (including High School Youth.)

 What a gift to have this time together -

 We hope to see you there!
