Announcements - Sunday, October 1, 2017


  • The Titus 2 ministry is a mentoring ministry to help equip women to make more and better disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • If you’re thinking about being a mentor, there is a great opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a part of a Titus 2 group before taking the next steps toward becoming a mentor.
  • It takes place on Oct. 9, in the home of one of the Titus 2 leaders. There’s no cost to you to attend. Please note that if you would like to attend the Oct. 9th training, the deadline to RSVP is Oct. 1.


  • At FCC, our mission is to make more and better disciples, and we want to follow Jesus’ example. We want to make disciples who make disciples. And, what we hear often is that people want to live out this mission, but they’re not sure if they’re qualified for discipleship or even where to start. The good news is that if you are a follower of Jesus, you are a disciple of Christ and you are a discipler.
  • We’re offering a workshop after both services TODAY, Oct. 1, to help equip FCC for discipleship. The workshop is all about how to start a discipleship relationship, and it will include a panel discussion with some people here at FCC with years of experience with discipleship. And, that’s Gary and Angela Nourse, along with Jill Willike. Diane Bennett is facilitating the discussion.They are eager to help you take your next steps with discipleship and mentoring.
  • The workshop will take place in Rooms 9 and 10 after both services today. There’s no cost for the workshop, and no need to register. 


  • Today’s big announcement is brought to you by the letter "H," which stands for hospitality.
  • The life of discipleship that Jesus calls us to is much more than the transfer of information, it is relational, life on life.
  • More often than not, those who enter into a discipleship relationship with Faith Community make their first step in one of our two gatherings on Sunday morning. Out of love for them and those who already call FCC home, we make our welcome more than a mat at the door, but a team of people to help everyone God sends our way feel welcomed, noticed and loved providing a life giving on ramp to life as a disciple in community. We see hospitality as mission critical.
  • Fully staffing our team requires 45 people every weekend. From greeters to our coffee crew to those who make you feel at home in our gatherings and take next steps, we endeavor to be a large church with a small church feel. If you have a bent toward hospitality, young or old, male or female we would love to have you consider being part of our team.
  • We offer one 90-minute training a year and hold it on two different dates, pick the one that works best for you. They are this coming Saturday, October 7, from 9-10:30 a.m. (light breakfast provided), and another session on Monday, October 16, from 6:30-8:00 p.m.,  with dessert.
  • Those who are already part of the team will be attending this time of development. If you have interest in this area and want to test the waters, simply show up and see what is going on, we’d love to have you!
  • To learn more about the opportunities that exist or how you can join this team stop by the ministry booth after our gathering and help make this on ramp to discipleship even more effective.
