WORLD RENEW: This morning’s offering is to support the work of World Renew and to help put food on tables around the world. World Renew has the plans, the systems, the partners, and the people to come alongside communities experiencing hunger. We are excited to join this program as a faithful response to the God who can accomplish abundantly more than all we ask or imagine. Thank you for giving as you are able to help solve World Hunger. Peter Fish may be brought to the front when given the cue during the service.

CADETS: Tomorrow is Mother-Son game night at First CRC basement from 6:30-8:30! Please bring your favorite snack and your favorite board game. Drinks and additional snacks will be provided.
