This Weekend at First (1/2/15)

Happy New Year!

Here’s a look ahead at what’s coming up for the first Sunday of 2015:

Sunday School Resumes​

After a two-week break we look forward to restarting our Sunday school classes from our youngest congregants on up. The men will meet in the library to resume their study of Mark with Nick P., and the ladies will meet in Gano Chapel where Kimberly H. will lead the study for January. Make your plans to be here around 9.30am to study the Word together!

Sunday 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 Matthew 2.1–12.​ We will close the service by celebrating communion together.​

Christmas Offering

This year’s Christmas offering has been set aside for our gospel partners around the world. It’s not too late to give! Please use the designated envelope, or simply mark your gift as such. Thank you for your prayerful participation.

If You Could Ask God One Question

A conversation begins Friday, January 9 for all who are curious, questioning, or skeptical of the Christian message. Promotional materials and more information about If You Could Ask God One Question will be available Sunday on the back table. Christians are welcome to attend only if accompanied by a non-Christian friend.

A Season of Prayer and Fasting

As the new year dawns, we want to devote ourselves to seek our Lord anew. And so the second week of January is designated as our Season of Prayer and Fasting. More information will be forthcoming.

Forward on Our Knees

This year we’re adding something new to the Season of Prayer and Fasting: a gathering for prayer and mission Saturday, January 10 called Forward on Our Knees. We’ll meet at 10am to pray, then head down to the NYC Rescue Mission to deliver the clothes we’ve collected for them. Make your plans to attend!
