It’s Time to Sign-up

and attend a Table Talk

As part of our series From Bread and Cup to Faith and Giving, we are scheduling Table Talks. These are small group gatherings hosted by church leadership during Stewardship. Table Talk gatherings bring congregation members together in casual settings to have conversations about our thoughts on faith and money, stewardship and the church. 

This is a great time to share your ideas and visions moving forward at FRUCC. You are only asked to attend one and they last around 1 1/2 hours. 

Please click a box below and sign-up to attend one of the Table Talks below.

Thank You

NEW BOOK STUDYStarting Tuesday – Nov. 1st.NO book study next week.“Jesus and the Disinherited” by Howard Thurman, renown African-American theologian. At the time of his death in 1981, Howard Thurman was Dean Emeritus of Marsh Chapel, Boston University, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Howard Thurman Educational Trust in San Francisco. He also served as Dean of Rankin Chapel and Professor of Theology at Howard University in Washington, D.C. and Director of Religious Life at Morehouse College, Atlanta.
His book, Jesus and the Disinherited, uses the New Testament gospels to describe how a non-violent civil rights movement could be successful. This book influenced a number of civil rights leaders including James Farmer founder of the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) and Martin Luther King, Jr., (whose father studied at Morehouse during Thurman’s tenure) who carried the book with him whenever he marched. The book study continues on Tuesday evenings by ZOOM. Several copies of the book will be available in the church office. We invite you to join us at 7:00 p.m. beginning November 1st.

Ben recently received an email from the Guidance Counselor at Charles England with some potentially, deeply troubling news. Apparently the economic situation is our country has made its way to the localities, including the schools. There is the possibility that the Backpacking Program at Charles England will cease unless folks like you lend a helping hand.

At this time we are using funds in our Charles England School account to help make it through 2022, but beyond this… who knows?

We are all being affected by the economic situation here in the US. Those who hurt the most are those who have not enough to eat. I speak of the children we support at Charles England.

Please bring non-perishable foods by the church office or send financial contributions. Make sure the memo line of you check reads Charles England School Ministry.

Thank you,

Ben Hale and Jay Whitley
