Friends and Family Ministry Challenge: Thank you YAYAM for launching FAC’s Ministry Challenge for 2020. The Youth and Young Adult Ministry had 57 members and guests present. There was a great spirit of unity and relationship-building in the house as we worshiped and fellow-shipped together. Thank all FAC leaders and members for spending time with us. Your presence is invaluable as we move through 2020 strengthening our bonds with our friends and families. We have ministry commitments for April, May, June, July and September. March is still in need of a Ministry. If your ministry or group has not chosen a month, please let Elders, LaRita Cormier or Nsombe Famodou know. (Combination groups are welcomed.)
