You Should Know

From Pastor David

An important announcement was made by Diane Cornett on Sunday.  Diane has accepted a call to serve full-time with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) beginning the last week of May.  She will be working at a location in Madison, Wisconsin, where she will help create training events and organize short-term service opportunities at international and US locations.

When Diane shared her big news with the staff and the elders last Tuesday, she assured us that her decision has nothing to do with the transition we are in at FCC.  Beginning at least two years ago, God has been building a desire in Diane to be directly involved in world evangelism and missions.

Diane will continue to lead children’s ministry at FCC until May 13, and the elders are making plans so that there is no interruption in the programming after that date.  In the next 90 days, Diane will also be enlisting partners willing to give prayers, encouragement, and financial support for this endeavor.  YWAM and all their associates are dependent upon churches and individuals who want to participate through their support even from afar.

Please pray for God’s continued guidance and blessing for Diane, just as we are praying for First Church of Christ.  “. . . that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best . . .” (Philippians 1:9,10).  We have to believe that God is honoring those prayers, and he is disclosing what is best, incrementally, as we gain “knowledge and depth of insight.”

See you Sunday!

Pastor David

 

From Diane Cornett

It has been such an honor and privilege over the past 11 years to have worked with kids/families and be a part of our community outreach.  This past week when I let you all know my plan, it was so emotional for me.  I am so excited about God’s plan for me and yet I am sad to leave my church family where I have been raised and served.  FCC is my home!  God is so amazing though as He continues to gently guide me thru the transitions.  I cannot thank you all enough for all your kind words of encouragement!  You have confirmed the path for me! 

As I was praying the other night, God reminded me that I am not actually moving on but am being sent out and will have the FCC partners coming right along with me!   I could not make this leap of faith without your prayers and support.  To me this is a beautiful picture of God’s people coming together as one to further His work in spreading Jesus to all nations!   

I am excited to start this new season in my life and to know I am not alone in this adventure puts my heart at peace and full of joy!  So, thanks again my FCC family for saying YES to joining me as we move forward together to know God more and make Him known throughout the nations!  I will be providing a newsletter very soon and you can sign up to receive monthly updates, be on my prayer team, and/or give support. 

 

From the Building Team

The Building Team would like for everyone to know that there is quite a bit of work going on throughout both floors of the church building.  We are in the process of changing out ceiling tile, some ceiling grid and all of our light fixtures.  Please pardon our mess and exercise caution when in areas where you notice construction is underway.  We also want to thank ALL of you for the continued monetary support of the Building Fund. It is your generosity that is helping us to renovate our campus in many different ways.  THANK YOU!
