Current Sermon Series: Advent 2013 – Walk in the Light
This series focuses on the gospel of Mark. In Mark’s gospel, we see a very active Jesus as he travels with his disciples teaching, healing, and performing miracles. As we center our minds and hearts on these stories about Jesus, we hope to uncover a deeper understanding of who He is. Not only do we hope to learn more about the Savior of the world, but throughout his gospel, Mark paints us a unique portrait of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Mark etches out the disciples lives in a very human way that we can relate to intimately. We are expecting to learn a lot together through this sermon series as we grow together as disciples.

Music is in the Air at FFC
Our church is hosting two upcoming events that will highlight some fantastic musical gifts. The first is a benefit concert featuring Eric Genuis, acclaimed composer and pianist, along with three world class musicians: violinist Avery Bright, cellist James Rosenbloom, and soprano Autumn Boyle. This is an extremely exciting opportunity, to host musicians of such caliber. All proceeds from the concert will benefit Lifeline of Columbiana County (our local pro-life ministry) as they seek to expand on their current facilities by opening a health clinic. The concert will be held on Sunday March 16th at 3:00pm. Tickets will be available on Sunday mornings or at the church office during office hours. The cost will be $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for students.
The second musical event is called “Bell-a-palooza” and it is a community handbell concert that will begin at 6:30pm on Sunday, March 30th. It will feature ensembles from Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Mt. Olivet United Church of Christ, and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, our very own Quaker Bells, along with a few other special guests! The concert will be free of admission, and there will be a cookie reception immediately following the program.
We would LOVE to see you at one (or both) of these events. If you are a fan of music, you won’t be disappointed!

Recent Sermon Series:
As we opened the new year, we took some time to look at just a few of the areas of our lives that God has called us to “steward” for him. The word “steward” is important because everything we have, and everything we are, is a gift from God. He has called us to use those gifts in obedience and with joy as we work to see His Kingdom on the earth as it is in heaven. Through this series, we chose to focus on stewarding these things: Time, Voice, Body, Influence, Treasure and Gifts. If you’d like to listen to some of these messages, you will find them all on our Sermon Page (use the “filter” to easily display only the sermons from this series).
