FCCW COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
FCCW has suspended in-person Sunday worship services until further notice and has implemented a modified plan for use of the building to try and limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Please stay home if you are not well! If you need assistance getting things at the grocery store or running errands please be in contact with Krista or Gina who can put you in touch with someone who can help.
These are the activities that will be suspended until until further notice.
* Food related events (potlucks, coffee hour)
* Committee Meetings (meet via phone, video chat or email)
* Office Hours - will be working from home and sometimes in the office. Call or email
* Pastoral Visits - call or email Gina if urgent. Happy to do phone calls.
* Outside groups using the building
* Choir practice
We will get through this time together. It will require a patience and grace from us that will stretch and grow us in new ways. We will be in touch frequently as things continue to unfold and change. If you would like to be added to church email notifications, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Please wear your mask and be prepared to follow social distancing guidelines.
Sea Glass Face Masks
This Lenten season we have been visualizing sea glass. A member of our Congregation has made several different styles of face masks, the fabric printed with sea glass pieces.
If you would like to purchase a mask as a fundraiser for FCCW, each is $10. Please send Krista an email email@example.com and let her know which type of style (pleated, fitted or 3-D)

Still Speaking Writers Group
We know, we know. You've been burned before. Your trust has been bent to the limit, then snapped. Politicians. Lovers. Broadband providers. That very expensive eye cream. Western civilization. The church. They promised so much -- and it hardly matters whether they simply tried and failed, or never intended to honor their promises in the first place.
They say God isn’t like the ones who let you down. But it’s hard not to look at God with the same jaded eye you’ve begun to cast on everything else. “Promises, promises,” you sneer, and resume doom scrolling.
This Lent, bring your cynicism and your scars. But be sure you bring, too, that little bit of hope you still have for a God who won’t let you down.
From the writers of the popular online Daily Devotional, Promises, Promises includes a biblical text, reflection, and prayer for each day of Lent until Easter Sunday.
A limited supply will be available to pick up. Please let Krista know if you would like one reserved for you.
