This Week’s Connector

THIS WEEK

New Welcome Home Service Times

We will be launching our new service times of 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30am this Sunday, June 28th! Click here to register for one of our in-person services. If you haven’t seen it, make sure you check out our Welcome Home video to see what to expect when you return!

Please note that masks will be required at our 8:30 service, and they will be highly encouraged and recommended at our 10:00 and 11:30 services. To hear more about this from Pastor Paul, click here.

We will be joining together for worship with those at home by livestreaming all our services on faclex.tv. You can visit our website and click on the faclex.tv button, or you can type faclex.tv into your browser and go!

If you aren’t able to watch a service live, visit the Weekly Services section of our website to watch anytime.

This week’s Virtual Atrium will happen from 12:40-1:00pm on Facebook Live. We hope you’ll join us!

Ice Cream Social

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream (and the chance to get out of the house)! Drop by the church on Friday night, July 10th, any time between 6:00-9:00pm to drive through and grab a frozen treat on us. We’ll have all your childhood favorites: drumsticks, popsicles, push pops, and more! Just follow the directions in the parking lot when you arrive. We can’t wait to see you (from 6 feet away, of course)!
