  VBS Mission Project: Water Project. You Can Help!
Posted by: bcraig on Jul 15, 2015 - 03:15 PM
Christian Life
Vacation Bible School is moving along nicely with kids and grown-ups all having a fun time while learning about Jesus. Each year VBS does a Mission Project where they ask the kids to bring change or donations in to go towards the Project. This year VBS is sponsoring the Water Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing sustainable water projects to communities in sub-Saharan Africa who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.

Anyone can donate. Follow this link to get to our VBS site at the Water Project. Thank you got your support. http://bit.ly/1O2jsUp

  Important Summer Bible Study starts Wednesday, 6/10
Posted by: bcraig on Jun 10, 2015 - 03:11 PM
Christian Life
A special summer Bible study starts this Wednesday @ 7pm in the Fellowship Hall to prepare the church for a planning retreat to beheld at the end of the summer.
The study will utilize Pastor Smith's book “Thriving Churches Then and Now.” There are 8 Characteristics which describe churches that are thriving and effective, found in the New Testament Church, and in every effective Christian movement in history. How do we utilize those characteristics that we are best at? How do we strengthen the areas in which we need to grow?
If you would like to help chart the course for the future of our church, or to learn more about what makes for a healthy church family – come to the study! There are 2 weeks off after the first session, to help everyone get “the reading” done! Books are available in the office for $9, or in Kindle format at Amazon for $4.99! email psmith@fcchanson.org for more information.

  Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship at 11pm
Posted by: bcraig on Dec 24, 2014 - 10:15 AM
Christian Life
All are encouraged and welcomed to join us on Wednesday night, December 24th, for our annual traditional candlelight Christmas Eve Worship starting at 11:00 pm. This Worship has been part of families in Hanson and surrounding communities for generations and this is a great time to gather the family, being some friends, and share the joy of Christ's birth with the singing of carols, music by some of the Bell Choir members and the message for this season. This service is capped off with a wonderful candlelight singing of "Silent Night" ending with "Joy to the World" as we welcome the Baby Jesus among us. This will be our only service on Christmas Eve, so we hope to see many of you at this special event.

  Unified Worship at 10am the Next Three Sundays
Posted by: bcraig on Dec 09, 2014 - 04:37 PM
Christian Life
In this time of Advent and exciting opportunities that our church is experiencing, the next three Sundays (Dec 14, 21, & 28) will all be Unified Services. This mean we will be having one service ONLY on those Sundays starting at 10am each week. On Dec 14th, our congregation will be introduced and hear the Message from our Search Committee's recommended candidate. A business meeting will follow Worship. The following Sunday, Dec 21st, is our annual Festival of Carols where we have a service of music from all the groups of the church and seasonal Scripture readings. The Sunday after Christmas, Dec 28th, will be the final Unified Service for this year and a time to Worship together after Christmas. Finally, no Sunday School during these three weeks, but nursery services are available. We look forward to sharing and worshiping together in this important time of the Christian year.
