This Weekend at First (11/21/14)

Here’s a preview of what’s coming up at First:

Shoebox Packing Party

​Saturday is the climax of lots of hard work this autumn. We’ll meet together in Haldeman Chapel at noon to pack shoeboxes for needy children around the globe. This is a highlight of our church year. Dress festively and bring a friend!​

​Each shoebox costs $7 to ship. Please prayerfully consider what you can give to help get these gifts to those in need.

Thanksgiving Offering

The trustees have designated this year’s Thanksgiving Offering to go to the cost of temporary boilers stationed outside the building. As you can see under the Giving section, we estimate that running these boilers will cost about $2,600 per week. Please prayerfully contribute what you can, either using the special envelope or indicating it on the memo line of your check.

​Sunday’s Worship Service​

The congregational songs this week are as follows. (If you don’t know a song, click its title and you’ll be taken to a video or audio rendition.)

​The sermon text will be Isaiah 5.

Book Groups

Both book groups resume this weekend. Tonight at 7pm, the Robert Murray M’Cheyne group will meet at the church building on 79th and Broadway. Sunday night at 6pm, those reading Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl will gather at the Petersons’ apartment. For more information, contact the church office.
