It is “Colors for Cancer” weekend

by David Alexander

Thoughts from David Alexander

Dear First Family, 

As we gather together this weekend, today I want you to know about several special opportunities. 

First, It will be “Colors for Cancer” weekend. This is a time we set aside annually to love and support individuals that have been diagnosed with cancer as well as their families. We will have our God is Big Enough wristbands available in a wide variety of colors representing the different types of cancer. Those will be available for you to pick up in our Atrium this weekend. 

We want to especially encourage you to stop by if someone you know has recently been diagnosed so that you might share that expression of your love and prayers for them. If you would like a bulk order of bracelets in a particular color, you can let us know by simply filling out this form

Our Military Ministry will also be collecting donations for the USO through the weekend of November 6th. A list of items they are seeking to collect is available by visiting this link. You are welcome to bring those at any time and drop them off in one of the large blue collection bins we have around our campus. 

If you are baking cookies to support our Kairos Prison Ministry, this is also the weekend to bring those with you. Please bring those to our atrium by this Sunday to support the upcoming ministry event that our Kairos team will be leading. If you have any questions, you may email serving@fmcm.org

Finally, our last two Town Halls will take place this Sunday afternoon at 5pm and Tuesday evening at 6:30pm. We have had over 950 attend one of the seven Town Halls we have had thus far. If you are a member planning to attend our Church Conference on November 13th and have not participated in one of these gatherings yet, I hope you will make every effort to be a part of one of these final two opportunities. 

As you can see, it’s a full weekend. I am looking forward to being with you in worship as we continue focusing on the teaching of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount. 

And one last thing…Don’t forget to also enjoy a beautiful fall weekend by stopping by our Pumpkin Patch! 

I love you and I am proud of you, 
Pastor David
