We will have a congregational meeting immediately following worship on Sunday, October 13th, to consider our congregation sponsoring Christy Messick as a candidate
for ordination for ministry in Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Christy shared her faith/call story and desire to seek ordination in a meeting with the FCC Elders on
September 15th. The Elders unanimously affirmed her as a candidate for ordination, which was then followed by a unanimous affirmation by the Church Board in their
meeting on September 19th. Since it is the congregation who ordains clergy in partnership with the Christian Church in Kentucky (CCK), this process requires a
congregational vote as well. Pending approval in the October 13 meeting, Christy would be taken “under care” by the Committee on Ministry of the CCK. She would meet with them periodically for a time of further discernment and also complete a study in Disciples History and Polity. That process will take around 18 months and if that group affirms her as a candidate for ordination, Christy would then be ordained in a service here at FCC. Christy and her wife, Sarah, have been members of FCC since November 2017, and have one son, Josiah. Chris
