For anyone and everyone who serves in some capacity at FFC, there is some valuable information now available on-line that can help us protect our children.
This training can be done from home at a time that is convenient for you. It takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete the video and take the test. It’s easy to follow and there is a workbook available that you can print out so you can follow along with the video.
The church will cover the cost of the training. When you have finished, please print out your certificate and give it (or a copy) to Margaret Bumbaugh to keep in your Child Abuse Prevention file.
If you’re interested in taking this training, please call the church office or sign up in the church nursery, or at the Youth or Children’s Information Desks. If you do not have a computer or are not on-line at home, we have a computer at the church that you may use. Please call the church office at 762-2991 to schedule a time to use it.

For the past few years we've been aware that the roof of the Chapel would soon need to be replaced. We came close to replacing it in the Fall of last year, but this week it actually becomes a reality. Monday morning Dependable Roofing arrived at the scene and began setting up scaffolding and the work began. It continues this morning as you can see from the pictures. Weather permitting the goal is to have the project completed by the end of the week, but there's a good chance it could spill over into early next week.

Tomorrow evening Pastor Brian resumes his three-week series on “God’s Progressive Revelation.” This series began two weeks ago and we took last week off due to the Hunger Strike Project. We’ll pick back up tomorrow evening as we go through an overview of the Bible, with our main goal being to see how the Law that was given to Moses was insufficient when it comes to our salvation. By contrast, we’re catching a glimpse of God’s grace that has been extended to each and every one of us.
Brian is having us examine the lives of seven people and how God progressively revealed Himself through each person in ways particular to their time – Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus and Paul. We’ll learn when each person lived. We’ll talk about who each person was, and what it was that God wanted to say to humanity at that time and in that place through each person. And we’ll try to get some idea of how the people were expected to respond to God, and how they did respond to God.
By the end of the month, we’ll have a general overview of the Bible, and hopefully have a better sense of where you and I fit in God’s plan and what our response should be to His revelation today.
Bring your Bible and perhaps a notebook to jot down some thoughts or insights you may want to keep to review later.
Notes: Next Wednesday evening (May 22nd) we’ll be holding our Church Prayer Hour for the month of May, and Brian will conclude his series on Wednesday the 29th.
