FAMILY CHURCH HAPPENINGS! Friday, April 1, 2016

FC’ers, our Spring Fair is tomorrow and we need your help! We are still needing helpers for the event on Saturday.  If you could carve out a few hours to help, it would be so appreciated. We need tour guides and people to work game booths. Both are simple, fun, and very needed.  This event is really a great outreach opportunity for Family Church and a great time for us to meet people in our community.  If you could help, please contact Jennifer Johnson or Jessica Johnson ASAP.  There are more details below.  Thank you in advance for being a part of our ministry to families.
