The Summer Youth Work trip has undergone a small change … we are no longer going
to Osceola, IA, but rather to lovely Bay City, Michigan. The change was forced by Group
Workcamps canceling the Osceola Trip. Our team is very excited to be spending the week
helping the elderly and needy of that community with home repairs.

Because the trip costs $359 each, our team is working on ongoing, small-scale fundraisers.
The first was our Krispy Kreme sale in March and we will follow up by selling refreshments and
bake sale items at the Talent Show on April 22. In addition, the Board of Outreach Ministries
has designated a portion of the Easter Offering towards our trip, so we all would appreciate
any financial support you can offer through that offering.

We invite your ongoing prayers and support for those of us who have signed on to go on
this trip: Kailey Arrivo, Taylor Blythe, Kendall Byrd, Emma Day, Maija Dunham, Grace Hanzelin,
Katelyn Hoag, Jeff Michelmore, Anne Robertson, Scott Robertson, Frankie Samargin, Maura
Sweeney, Katie Tozer, Brooke Wians and Tyler Wians.




    During the month of February, the 8th grade Exodus group challanged Genesis, Disciples and Sophs in a
    “pop tab war.” Pull tabs from pop and food cans were collected by each group to be turned in to the Ronald
    McDonald House in Lincoln Park, Chicago, where they will be recycled. Each year the Ronald McDonald House
    raises thousands of dollars by recycling pop can tabs alone. Congratulations to Sophs, who collected the most
    pop tabs, and to all of our youth for their extraordinary efforts. An entire garbage bag of pop tabs, along with
    supplies for the house, were delivered on March 8.

                                         featuring Dr. Dominic Candeloro
The Women’s and Men’s Association invite all members and friends of the church to our
Wednesday, April 11, 12:15 p.m. luncheon meeting at the Community House.

Dr. Candeloro is a well-known Chicago area historian who received his BS from Northwestern
University and his MA and Ph. D from the University of Illinois at Champaign. He has been a
Professor of History at the University of Illinois in Urbana and Chicago as well as Governor’s
State University. He is Executive Director of the American Italian Historical Association and
has authored many books including Chicago’s Italians: Immigrant, Ethnic, American, Images
of America: Italians in Chicago, Images of America: Chicago Heights , and A Multicultural
Portrait.

Dr. Candeloro is a frequent guest on local media, has served on the Southland Convention and Visitors Bureau Board of
Directors and a Board Member of the Illinois State Historical Society. He is a frequent speaker in Italy concerning the Italian
immigrant culture that developed in the United States.

Dr. Candeloro will be sharing some of his lifelong research and photos during his audiovisual presentation. This should be
a fascinating look at local history as well as a historian’s view of immigration and its role in American culture.

We will serve our usual tasty luncheon with perhaps a nod to Italian cuisine and invite you to join us. Tickets are $8 and
will be sold on March 25, April 1 and April 8. Please feel free to invite a guest to hear this compelling speaker.

                                              23 rd Psalm Bracelets to Benefit Project Sacred Space
                                              Last fall, Pastor Lynn Cheyney made twenty pewter and crystal bracelets
                                              depicting the 23rd Psalm for the PEGs Bazaar. Each bead in the bracelet
                                              is a reminder of the individual verses of the psalm. Touching them as you
                                              pray the psalm or just glancing at them on your wrist is a reminder of the
                                              power of God’s word.
                                              Since all twenty of the bracelets sold in the first minutes of the bazaar,
                                              Lynn promised to make twenty more. Those, too, sold immediately. Now,
                                              you have a chance to order your own bracelet and a team led by Pastor
                                              Cheyney will make them to fit your wrist. Please complete the order form
                                              and return it to Di King’s Mailbox with a check to FCC for $25 per bracelet
                                              with the memo notation: PSS bracelet. Also note if you wish a medium or
                                              long bracelet. Turn in your order by April 15. Bracelets should be ready in
                                              late May (dependent on the availability of the beads).

 members of the congregation as followers of Jesus Christ. The Board is
 responsible for fellowship, service groups and associations that enhance the church’s mission,
 the oversight for retreats sponsored by groups under its authority and other all-church events and
 celebrations. The Board also facilitates and assists the Women’s and Men’s Association.

 How does the Board function?
 There are twelve members elected from the congregation serving staggered three-year terms. The
 President of the Women’s and Men’s Association also serves on the Board. The Chair of the Board
 is one of the elected members. The Vice Chair and Secretary are selected from other members of
 the Board. The Board plans events in the spring of each year for the following year, and members
 of the Board volunteer to facilitate and coordinate the events with the help of other Board and
 congregation members. Events have included all-church retreats, Family Game Night, church
 anniversary celebrations, Pack-a-Picnic Sunday and the OneBookOneChurch voyage during Lent.
 Pastor Cheyney is the staff liaison to this Board.

 How does someone become a member of this Board?
 The Church Nominating Committee makes recommendations to the congregation for election to
 Boards. However, there are many opportunities to serve on teams for specific events sponsored
 by the Board that do not require Board membership. If someone would like to help with a specific
 event, they can contact the Chair of the Board or the Director of Lay Ministries.

 What is your personal goal as Chair of this Board?
 My goal as current Chair of the Board is to facilitate the development of a deep sense of Christian
 community at FCC though the continuance of successful church-community events and seeking
 new activities that will broaden our community inclusiveness and effectiveness.

 What special skills are needed to serve on this Board?
 The Board of Congregational Life would be helped by those who are imaginative, reliable, helpful,
 organized, people-oriented and who are planners and team players.

 Any surprises?
 It is not a surprise, but I have been pleased at how Board members have stepped up to take charge
 of events and their willingness to participate and contribute to the planning and execution of
 congregational events.

                                                   Dear FCC family and friends,

    Flossmoor, Illinois
                                                            At a recent staff meeting, our beloved Joe Ledwell shared
                                                   this quote from Dag Hamerskjold’s Markings – “For all that has been
                                                   – thanks! To all that is to come – yes!” How perfectly those words
                                                   capture where we find ourselves in this moment of the FCC story.
                                                   We’ve just celebrated 80 years of God’s faithfulness in and through
                                                   FCC – little could our ancestors have known back in 1927 the amazing
                                                   legacy wrought by their decision to establish a church in Flossmoor.
                                                   It is mind boggling to even begin to imagine the countless ways
                                                   both large and small that God has used our community of faith to
                                                   change lives and change the world over these past eight decades.
                                                   For all that has been – thanks!
                                                            As well, we stand in this month ready to step into the next
                                                   chapter of God’s faithfulness here. As we break ground on April 1
                                                   and begin Project Sacred Space construction after Easter, we are
                                                   preparing our space for the ministry God is calling us to accomplish.
                                                   It is again mind boggling to imagine the countless ways both large
                                                   and small that God will use our community of faith to change lives
                                                   and change our world over the coming eight decades. The ripple
                                                   effect of our faithfulness makes ministry possible not only for
                                                   ourselves, but for generations to come. How grateful I am for all
                                                   who have planned and prayed and given so generously to ensure
                                                   that our sacred space will be ready. But it is not only our building
                                                   – our 2007-2010 Long Range Vision is being prepared and holds out
                                                   many exciting dreams that will both deepen our faith and allow us
                                                   to profoundly impact our community and world. I can’t wait for its
                                                   unveiling later this summer! What truly exciting days these are. To
                                                   all that is to come – YES!

                                                   Blessings…
                                                   Pastor Lynn
