Laura’s Sabbatical
Apr 18 – Jul 20 all-day

FCCOL has received a sabbatical grant to support Laura’s upcoming sabbatical this spring. FCCOL is one of over 150 congregations across the United States selected to participate in this competitive grant program, which is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. and administered by Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis. The renewal program enables congregations to “support their pastors with the gift of sabbath time away from their ministerial duties and responsibilities.”

Laura will be away for three months starting after Easter. She’ll begin her pilgrimage in Assisi, Italy following in the footsteps of peacemaker mystic, St. Francis. Laura and her husband, Paul, will hike and explore their way to England and Ireland. While in Ireland, Laura will visit the peacemaking community of Corrymeela in Northern Ireland. Stay tuned for more details!

Habitat for Humanity Work Day

We’re gathering volunteers for a day of home construction with Habitat for Humanity. Our next build day is April 9th. We’ll be working on a project in Norwich, where 10 homes are being constructed concurrently. We need a team of 10 to 12 volunteers who are willing to swing a hammer or help in other relevant ways. No construction expertise is necessary. If you’re new, please email the church office for instructions. For all our reoccurring volunteers, please sign-up on the Habitat website.
