Wednesday Morning Bible Class

“The Glorious Gospel”

with Pastor Kregg

At the core of our faith in Christ lies an understanding of our human condition and basis for redemption. The gospel of good news is based on the person and the work of Jesus, the Christ who offers us salvation, redemption, and eternal hope. It is a message found from cover to cover within Holy scriptures. Our study will begin in Genesis and we will follow the work of God bringing redemption to humanity through to the book of Revelations.

All you need is a bible. The format is conversational and interactive. It is open to everyone.

I hope to see you there!

Family Fun

Family Creation Night Was A Hit!

Creation is the theme for our upcoming Hero Headquarters so we decided we would use that as or Family Night theme. Our night of creating with Minecraft, Legos, and crafts was great.  This Free family night was well attended by several families including kids, parents, aunts, uncles and even grandparents.  A lot of the kids headed straight for the lineup of Xboxes that Carly was able to finagle from work at the Microsoft Store. She had her friend and coworker Natalie Esther there for tech support and moral support. Thanks to Natalie and Microsoft! Carly pulled out all the stops on the snacks with healthy fruit and veggies and not so healthy (but delicious) pizza, chips, and cookies.

Besides the lineup of Xboxes, there were Legos to creations to build and plastic crafts to create. It made a nice diversion when attention spans waned and kids needed a break from mining. Later in the evening we even toured downtown Cleveland Minecraft style through the Rock Hall of Fame, Browns/Cavs/Indians stadiums, Terminal Tower and more all built by Adam and Frank (not in one night). We can’t wait for the next big event!

MLK Day of Service

MLK Day of Service

OFFERS SERVICE PROJECTS FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES!

Monday, January 20th, 2020

FBCGC marks Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service with the following program:

Gather in Spahr at 9:00 am.  The program will conclude after lunch at 1:30 pm.

Martin Luther King Day will again be a day when we serve as hosts with friends from Church of the Master in a day ON rather than a day OFF. This day of service was started by Kay and Martin Rolfs Massaglia over ten years ago. Let’s keep this great tradition going! In keeping with Dr. Kings’s dream, the churches will work together bridging lines of age, race, gender, socio-economic status, urban/suburban on projects that benefit the church and beyond. We will not only provide service to others but the most important part of the day is the building of relationships. What a rewarding way to build on the legacy of Dr. King toward racial reconciliation and peace.

We have four different service projects that you can volunteer for this year.


Family Promise

This will be a family-friendly project. The group will form carpools to travel to Family Promise, a transitional housing facility for homeless families. This will be a project engaging with families and assisting kids with a craft and activities.

Open to Age 2 to 92

Leader- Carly Marino


Judson Hymn Sing

The group will travel (after forming carpools) to nearby Judson Park to sing favorite old hymns in the nursing care section. No choir experience needed, just come and enjoy singing as we bring a smile to others.

Open to children to all adults

Leader- Gwen Dyer and Liz Gockel


Lunch Bunch/Kairos Cookies

This group will remain at church to prepare a light lunch for all after the service projects and also bake delicious cookies to be used in the Kairos Cookie Ministry. Clean up after lunch as well.

Open to teens to adults

Leader – Ed Szalay


FBC Service Project

This group will spruce up the church by taking care of church pews and other miscellaneous cleaning.

Open to older teens to adults

Leader – TBD

Sign-up sheets are displayed in Swayze Tower or let us know in which project you would like to participate through the form below. Please consider joining us on this special day.

Thanks!

Nicaragua Mission Trip

nicaragua.

June 20th – June 27th

This summer we will be planning a mission trip back to Nicaragua. The country has been fairly stable and 15 or more teams from all over the USA have been back. Much work is needed right at the AMOS center so many teams have stayed right there except for occasional trips to the outlying communities.

The price varies slightly according to flights but will be about $1700.00 per person including all meals, lodging and transportation. There are a few scholarships available. The team leader this year will be Jeremy Bull. He has been to Nicaragua many times as a qualified team member. He also has medical training. He has been a great asset to all our teams in the past.

You must have a valid passport good for at least 6 months after returning to the US. For questions please contact Nancy Wheaton, Fran Leanza or Annette Szalay.
