Baby Bottle Blessings
In 2016, FAC participated by contributing over $1500 from 135 returned bottles in Assurance Pregnancy Center’s BBB campaign. The total from all churches was $116,138. This year’s goal is to raise $123,000. God has opened the door to expand Assurance’s services which we pray will help prevent more abortions and increase the number of women and men served. Please pray about how you may support and participate in this local ministry. Return your bottle on Father’s Day, June 18 with cash or checks payable to Assurance. Questions? Call Mike & Pam Pepper, 223-7495.

Embrace Ministry Diaper Collection
Our Young Marrieds class is collecting diapers for Embrace Ministries, one of our partner ministries here in Lexington. They offer a diaper bank once a month for people in their community who have a need for diapers, but don’t always have the money to buy them. Bring your diapers by June 18.
Annual Meeting & Election
Sunday, June 11, 6:00 pm, Sanctuary
We will have an election, reflect on the past year, get an update from Pastor Steve on transitions, and hear from the Search Committee. A slate of nominations has been posted throughout the Atrium so you are aware of the positions and people we will be electing. If you are unable to attend, contact the Church Office to get your absentee ballot. If you are an active member, you can vote. Childcare will be available for children from birth through Kindergarten. An ice cream social will follow the meeting. Bring your favorite topping. All are welcome!
