Making fully devoted followers of Christ
Keep up with what's happening at FFC
As we Love Well, we are learning that Love doesn't stay at home - we want to make our love wider. Over the next two months we will be loving on people outside of our church and community. Be sure to jump in to as many of these events as you can.
FFC is excited to partner with JoyFM Radio to host our annual blood drive. The blood banks run dangerously low during the holidays and your donation could save up to three lives. If you would like to donate blood, please make an appointment online at myffc.info.
For the past few years the Streetlights Team has delivered frozen turkeys to the families in East St. Louis for Thanksgiving. This season we would like to increase our love by including a complete meal. With a donation of $20 or more you can help us reach our goal of feeding 250 families.
To make a donation or to sign up for the packaging day go to myffc.info.
Bring your boxes back.
Wow! You are doing a great job committing to fill a shoebox. Now take the next step and fill it with goodies and bring it back as soon as you can. The deadline is November 11 – but let’s beat the deadline and ensure we get all of our boxes sent out to the children this year. You can click the buttons below for all of the information you need.
If you register your box online at samaritainspurse.org you can track where your box goes and know that a deserving child received your gift. If you didn’t get a box – use one you have at home, or purchase a plastic one at your local store.
Our goal this year is to collect 800 boxes. This is less than one per person. Below are some links with ideas of how to make packing the boxes fun!
This weekend is a chance to slow down and reconnect. Give each other an early Christmas gift you will never forget, an investment in your marriage and relationship that will last a lifetime. In one weekend you will discover:
Use the code Faithfamily to pay a discounted prize of $99.99 per person. Military call 1.800.FLTODAY for a discounted prize of $49.99 per person.
No matter how long it’s been since your loved one passed, grief can make the holidays a painful time. If you’re separated or divorced, the holidays can also be a lonely, stressful and depressing time.
But there’s hope. Join us for an encouraging free seminar to discover new reasons to enjoy the holidays. Seating is limited so please register today!
