Hey FSC, Lots of exciting things going on... 1. Mid-month prayer -- TOMORROW January 14 All are invited to take part in FSC's mid-month prayer on Wednesday, January 14th (that's tomorrow!) from 6:30am to 8am at Erik's office (1205 W.

2. Loaves & Fishes -- January 18 Our chance to serve at Loaves & Fishes for the month is Sunday, January 18th. We will be meeting at the Conrad Center (1400 Oliver Hill Way) at 11am to prepare and serve a meal to those who need it. Clean up is usually complete by 2pm. If you're interested in taking part, please contact Kira at kmdisse [at]

3. FSC Vespers -- starting January 25 Beginning this month, we will be gathering on the last Sunday of the month for FSC Vespers--an evening time for friendship, prayer, worship. After church on Sunday, January 25th, please plan on staying for a potluck dinner and a time of prayer together. We'll divide up the meal as follows:

Last names A-F please bring a main dish Last names G-N please bring a side dish Last names O-T please bring a dessert Last names U-Z please bring drinks*

*Those of you not following into this part of the alphabet are also welcome to bring drinks should you have the desire, as our distribution of U-Z names might be a bit low.

4. Prayer & Fasting for RVA Please join us and 10 other churches for a month of prayer and fasting for our city. Contact Erik (erik [at] for more on this if you have questions.

5.  Central Virginia Food Bank For the next three weeks, we will be taking collections for the Central Virginia Food Bank. Please bring canned and dry goods to church with you! They are always in need of things like peanut butter, canned meat, and pasta.
