We will host a Zoom event with Cathy Studer, Author of Broken to Beautifully Whole. Her book will be made available to participants for free.
We invite you join to us for a compelling message about hope, healing, and empowerment by author, speaker and coach, Cathy Studer. She authored the book "Broken to Beautifully Whole" that shares the steps she followed as she moved through her own pain of carrying shame, very low self-worth, and humiliation after suffering six years of childhood sexual abuse. Cathy models how it is possible to recover from intense hurt or abuse, and create a life filled with value, purpose, and joy. The six attributes shared can initiate healing while reducing the occurrence of depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Her message would not be complete without also sharing practical actions for every single person to take to eliminate sexual abuse tragedies as she is passionate about defeating these statistics.
Cathy lives in Ohio with her husband, and a loving yellow lab, and has two adult children. Join us as Cathy shares her purpose and her passion.
Come let us pray as one community! You are invited to join us for our last outdoor prayer service of the season. Gathering in our cars at the FLC parking lot, we will hold an outdoor prayer service. Volunteers will direct each car to a slot that is socially distant for our safety. A bulletin and factory-sealed communion packets will be placed on your car hood for you to collect. You may choose to bring your own lawn chairs and sit outside directly in front of your car.
The service will be led by Rev. Mark Simone and staff using a PA sound system and FM radio frequency. It will include prayers for us to pray together, scriptures and songs. In all things, we will be following the CDC and state guidelines.
Following the service, if you desire personal prayers, Rev. Mark will be available for drive-up prayers. There will be a space on your bulletin to write your requests.
We are not going to let the current circumstances keep us from welcoming new members into the Federated community. Senior Pastor Hamilton Throckmorton and the Membership Committee will be offering our Fall Inquirers Class via Zoom. It couldn’t be easier to learn more about becoming a member of Federated Church – just two hours of your time, one evening, from the comfort of your home.
If you are interested in learning more about Federated and about the United Church of Christ, and you are comfortable joining a Zoom meeting, we invite you to sign up for this class. Contact Melinda Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or register via your Realm account and she will arrange to send you the Zoom link.
