Nightlight Ladies Bible Study
Tuesday, January 19, 8-week study, 6:30 pm in room 105

This group study shows that the idea of a covenant - God's enduring promise - is key to understanding our relationship to God. Kay Arthur will guide you in exploring the benefits and responsibilities of a covenant as well as the character of the covenant initiator. Learn about the remarkable ways the old covenant points to the promises of the new covenant. Books will be available the first night of class for $15.00 each.
Baby Day Celebration
Sunday, January 31, 9:30 & 11:00 am services

Did you celebrate the birth of a new baby in the last year or welcome a new child into your family through adoption (January 2015 - January 2016)? Our church family wants to celebrate with you! To be included in this celebration, visit the nursery (back SW corner, adjacent to KidPoint) to pick up your submission form. Photos and information due by Tuesday, January 26. Contact Danielle Ricks at 314 265-5245 or danielle@fccf.org for more information.
Collection for St. Louis Crisis Nursery
Until Sunday, January 31

We want to be mindful of those children and families who from time to time need a temporary solution to a family crisis. The Saint Louis Crisis Nursery is committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect and provides emergency intervention, respite care and support to families in crisis.

You can make a difference in the life of a child with donations of clothing, diapers or formula. Older kids need pull-ups, mittens, hats, gloves and scarves! We will have collection points throughout the church building until 1/31/16. Thank you for blessing others.
