LEGACY FUND SEMINAR

Sunday, April 28

3:30 pm

76 Bell St., Lounge

In response to the Capital Campaign, Federated has decided to host creative giving seminars more regularly. These seminars educate members about how they can initiate planned gifts to support the church’s long-term financial health through the Legacy Fund. The Legacy Fund acts as our endowment fund - annually supporting our church operations and ministries.

 

We will discuss methods of donating required minimum distributions or securities, as well as naming Federated as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, pension or will. We will hear thoughts from Hamilton and from those who have already made a planned gift to the church.

 

RSVPs are appreciated—contact Laura Taylor at 440.247.6490 x115 or rejoiceandrenew@fedchurch.org.

 


ORGAN DEDICATION CONCERT

Sunday, April 28

4:30 pm

76 Bell St., Sanctuary

We now have one of the largest, finest, and most versatile organs in the area and want to use it to its full advantage.  Our new organ is a Rodgers Infinity hybrid organ, which means we will be using all the original pipes from the Schantz organ, but have also added many digital sounds.


Our guest organist will be Dan Miller, an organ designer and internationally renowned musician. Mr. Miller is in his 20th year at Rodgers Instruments. He also is an Adjunct Professor of Organ at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon and is well-known for his composing and arranging and has several published works. 


Marcia is excited to share the capacity of our organ and introduce us to Dan. Come hear the musician who designed our new organ!



RECLAIMING THE PUBLIC FORUM:
Fostering Family Conversations on Difficult Topics

Monday, April 29

7 pm

76 Bell St., Fellowship Hall

Federated Church invites you to a discussion exploring how to approach difficult topics with children.  The news seems to be dominated by disturbing events such as school shootings, family separations at the border and catastrophic weather events.  It can be difficult to have an honest conversation with our children, when we don’t completely understand ourselves. Please join us as we explore age-appropriate ways to broach these subjects, address anxiety, reconcile the role of faith in these events and help kids find their own way to make a tangible difference.   


Speakers: Dr. Tira Stebbins and Rev Mark Simone


Childcare for school age children will be available. Please RSVP for childcare reservations to Kiersti Critchfield - kcritchfield@fedchurch.org.
