A CLOSER LOOK
 
Sharing the Harvest: See bulletin insert for more information. For a second year, FCC is supporting this wonderful mission venture from Covenant World Relief and Wiley Heights Covenant Church in Yakima. 
 
Fall Women’s Retreat: Ladies, we’d love to have you join us for this year’s retreat. Featuring the theme “Audacious Grace”, this promises to be a wonderful, blessed time! Scholarships will be available. Contact Janice Place at (503) 896-0368 or janiceplacepdx@gmail.com.
 
LIFE GROUPS: Life Groups are the small groups of FCC that meet regularly for the purpose prayer, study and support.  We have several groups forming this Fall providing opportunities for connection.  There are both groups for men, groups for women, and groups for couples and singles. If you are interested in finding a group to connect with, contact Pastor Kent (kent@firstcov.com) or Laurie Roberts, our Council member for Adult Ed. (charleslaurie@comcast.net).
 
Welcome Shelby! We have a new staff member joining the FCC: Shelby Dixon will be taking over as our Ministry Assistant. She will be replacing Gavin Dluehosh, who is entering chaplaincy training. Welcome to Shelby and Godspeed to Gavin!
