Planning for FCWC 2017 is underway!

Thanks to all of the church representatives who attended our kick-off Planning Meeting on September 21st.  It was terrific to see so many familiar faces and to meet so many new folks as well.  Our next Planning Meeting will be on Wednesday, October 12th from 12 – 1PM at Hope Lutheran Church.  If you missed the first meeting, it is not too late to join us.  If you are a new church or a new representative from an old church then we will repeat the introduction to Flower City from 11:00 – 12:00, so feel free to come at 11, hear the introduction and then stay for the general meeting at noon.

Remember that Church Applications are due no later than November 9th.  The application can be found on our FORMS page.
