Monday, April 10th at 11:30am, The Family Leader will be hosting a special service to kick off Easter week at the Capitol. Pastor Todd will be bringing the message. This unique event will bring together members of the legislature, executive branch, lobbyists, public employees, and members of the community. Find out more here.
Our next Return Women’s Event is coming up at the end of the month! Return is a gathering of FFC women, where you’ll hear from, speak with, and pray with other women from the church. Don’t miss this! Return will be taking place on April 29th at 9am in the Youth Room.
If you haven’t picked up an Easter invite yet, or need more, you can grab one from an usher or at Connect Central. Please take these cards and invite someone who doesn’t know Jesus to our Easter services! We’d love to pack out the place as we hear of our resurrected Lord.
We are excited to do something different this year at Easter to interact with our community. We are going to be sharing the great surprise of Easter! Families will have the opportunity to move around to 5 different interactive stations. Each one will relate the surprise that occurs at the station to the surprise of the resurrection. We will also have lunch for families.
1. Fantastic Floatation
2. Confounding Creation
3. Marvelous Mirascope
4. Extraordinary Energy
5. Amazing Animation
We would love for lighthouses and families to get involved! There are a few different ways you can get involved. We would love for your lighthouse/family to run one of the stations. We have split them into 1 hour time slots so you could either do the entire 2 hours or split it with another lighthouse group. We can also use help with set-up and tear down.
You can sign up to help below, or contact Becky Doubleday for more details or to sign up.
One of our missions partners will be on home assignment this year from the end of April until mid-December. They are looking for a vehicle to use during this time. It needs to be at least a 6-passenger vehicle. They would probably put 10-15k miles on it. If anyone could help out for part of the time or for the whole time, they would appreciate it! To help out, contact David Davenport at
