I love the fall season! I love cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, and local farmer markets filled with fresh vegetables and fruits…And, of course, I love football! In particular, I love living near the Big House where I can hear the animated sounds of the marching band on football days and the roar of cheering fans as they nudge the Maize and Blue on to another victory. Go Blue!
I think this is why some years ago we decided to title the first Sunday after Labor Day weekend, “Kick-Off Sunday,” which this year falls on Sunday, September 11. On Kick-Off Sunday, we will be kicking off a brand new programming year (Please check out our website for more details: www.fccannarbor.org) and resuming our full Sunday worship schedule (9 a.m. Pilgrim Hall Service, 9:30 a.m. Douglas Chapel 15-Minute Communion Service, and 10 a.m. Sanctuary Worship Service). On top of that, we will be kicking-off with a grand party following the 10 a.m. service, outside, on the Betsy Barbour dormitory side of the church…with sloppy joes and draft root beer, face-painting and a clown making balloon animals for kids, and a variety of ministry displays by our small groups, program committees, and boards.
It is going to be a very fun day at FCC this Sunday, so I hope you will come and join us, and be a part of the FCC team! Please remember: “Whatever Your Story, You Are Welcome Here!” We mean it.
