This week at FSC, 2.18.09

Good afternoon! Here are your FSC announcements for this week... 1. Mercy Fund, Sunday 2/22 As this Sunday is the last Sunday of the month, we will be taking contributions for FSC's Mercy Fund. Donations to the Mercy Fund are kept separate from our regular budget and will be used to help out members of our congregation and community when needed. Please be prayerful about making a contribution to this fund.

2. Vespers, Sunday 2/22 This coming Sunday is also time for our monthly Vespers pot luck. Bring a dish to share and join us for fellowship, worship, and prayer. Drinks will be provided.

3. Men's Retreat 4/24 - 4/26 An announcement from Blake: Let's be honest, men are horrible at relationships. Our schedules are busier than we ever anticipated. Put your calendar aside for a couple days and join us at the end of April, when we'll be headed to Richard and Eniko Rumrill's property about an hour north in King and Queen's County for a Men's weekend. It's a 100+ acres of forestation where men will be able to get away and be men - smoke pipes, camp, and do whatever men like to do in the woods. Hope you can join us! More details to come. 4. Mercy/Justice Survey If you haven't had a chance to take the Mercy/Justice Survey, please take a couple minutes to do so. This will help the Mercy and Justice team research and explore different ministry opportunities that we might want to explore as a church. Use this link to take the survey (6 questions total).

Have a great week! --
