Sunday Altar

There is a new team at FCC, contributing creativity to enhance our worship experience on Sunday mornings called the Altar Group.  The purpose of the Altar Group is to facilitate Sunday worship with creative, visual expressions that enhance the worship experience.

The hope and dream is that the Altar will become a place not only for flowers, but a place for creative expression reflecting the theme of the Sunday’s service and enhancing the worship experience. There will always be special times in the life of the congregation when plants and flowers are most appropriate and welcome. Other times, symbols, objects, color, texture, light, and movement may best express meaning to someone.

You are invited to sign up on the kiosk in the upstairs lobby for a Sunday when you want to bring flowers or do something to express the theme of worship that day. Everyone is invited, as individuals or as a ministry group, to sign up for an open Sunday on the sign-up sheets. The Altar Group also will be fulfilling this mission by taking responsibility for specific Sundays throughout the church year to create a visual expression of worship, such as the “Harvest of Plenty” and “Advent/Christmas.”

Contact Altar Group Coordinator: Valerie Garrick 541-654-2135.

Washing Dishes

Sign Up Now!We have teams set up to wash dishes each Sunday for Fellowship Hour as one more way of meeting our Earth Stewardship goals.  In addition there seems to be an ever-increasing need for people to wash dishes for church events. So if dish washing for events appeals to you please send contact the church office  and get on the list. Come have fun whether once a year or several times. Together we help keep our commitment to a greener church possible.

Contact: Trisha Chapman at trishac@fcceugene.org or 541-345-8741.


Welcomers are a group of volunteers that help to ensure all who walk through our doors feel acknowledged and welcomed on Sunday mornings.  Welcomers go through a training and then are scheduled many months in advance.  Call Trisha if you are interested in learning more about becoming a welcomer.

Contact: Trisha Chapman at trishac@fcceugene.org or 541-345-8741.


Sign Up Now!Invite the congregation into the sanctuary as you hand them the Sunday Bulletin.  Four people are needed each Sunday which can include families.  During the service the ushers pass the offering plate and present it to the altar.
