This is our last week with Katelyn as our Administrative Assistant. While we do have a few potential candidates, there will be a period of time without someone in this role. During this transition time we have a few stepping in to help fill the gaps.
Interim Pastor, Chris Owens will hold office hours Tuesday-Thursday 10AM-4PM. You can also reach Chris at any time on his cell (270)703-7552 or email cowens@lextheo.edu  Chris will be sending out the Tuesday email, so please direct any prayer requests, joys and announcements to him.
Ann Thornton will be checking the church's email and handling the work with our accountant's office.

A note from Katelyn:
"Thank you all for the many well wishes as I begin this new adventure! Many have asked what I will be doing on the farm. Magney Legacy Ridge Farm is a sustainable vegetable farm using organic practices. They grow a large variety of vegetables and have an online market where they sell produce (along with products from other local food producers) and make home deliveries once per week. They also set up at the Murray & Paducah Farmer's Markets. 
So, I will be doing a lot of things! I will be preparing beds for planting, seeding and maintaining crops, fertilizing, harvesting, cleaning & preparing produce for deliveries, etc.. I have gardened for many years but this is the first time I will be involved in such a large scale operation. I'm excited to learn all that I can! If you are interested in organically grown produce their website is below. 
I will miss seeing many of you regularly, as you have become good friends! Thank you for making my time here at FCC such a wonderful experience. I truly wish you all the best!"

Weekly Communion 

Keep an eye out for an email coming tomorrow via Survey Monkey. We want everyone's opinion to help us decide how we will proceed with communion after Lent.

We are offering communion in a different fashion during Lent.  People are asked to come forward to pick up their communion elements during the time of communion, take them back to their seat, and partake of them as they are led.  People are also asked to use this time for reflection and prayer.  As to the form of communion, you have two choices.  One, the prepackaged type we have been using.  Two, the two cup option which has the bread in the bottom cup and the juice in the top cup.  Either way, you still only have one thing to carry.


Our Congregation bulletin board outside the office is beginning to fill up with the beautiful faces of our FCC Family, but we are still missing many of our regulars.
If you have not already, please bring a current photo of you or your family to put on the bulletin board to help Chris put faces and names together.  Be sure to include clearly printed names with your picture. You can email your picture to fccmurray@gmail.com, drop it in the offering plate on Sunday, or in the mail slot  in the fellowship hall door any time that is convenient for you.
