CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
Circle of Friends is our small group ministry in which many of our members participate. Each circle of friends meets each month for two years. Activities are up to each group to decide; the focus, however, is being a part of a trusting, nurturing and caring group of church friends.
The Meditation Group meets each Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. for one hour of guided meditation. Various practices are offered by the facilitators
Coloring can be a spiritual and meditation practice. The FCC Coloring group meets each Thursday, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
