FoC Softball Team

Co-coaches Ellie & Scott Boros have let us know our team is now in the end-of-summer tournament and had its first game against Crown of Glory.  The FOC team came from behind in its last ups with two homeruns in the bottom of the 6th inning.  They prevailed in that epic contest with a final score of 13-12.  The tournament continues and is a double elimination contest.  Next game is August 21 at 7 pm, and the team loves having a cheering section.  Good luck to the mighty bats of Family of Christ!

Altar Flowers

A gift of flowers for Sunday worship is a lovely and meaningful way to remember a loved one, a special occasion, or a blessing received. For a very affordable $20, we will create a beautiful fresh arrangement to adorn the altar, which you may take home after Sunday worship, if you’d like. Sign up on the flower chart on the kiosk for the date(s) on which you’d like to provide flowers. Please make your check payable to “Family of Christ,” write “flowers” on the memo line, and leave the check in Marilyn Syverson’s mailbox in the church office.
