If You Could Ask God One Question
Friday, February 20 is the next discussion for all who are curious, questioning, or skeptical of the Christian message. The topic is “Why does God hate sex?” Join us at 7pm here at First. Christians may attend if they bring a non-Christian guest.
Annual Ladies’ Prayer Brunch
Saturday, February 21 is the annual Prayer Brunch. All ladies are invited to gather in Haldeman Chapel at 10am. The speaker is our own Jessica Rivera.
Black History Month Concert
Saturday, February 28 we will celebrate God’s grace and goodness to the African-American people of faith. Our own Clarice Turnbull is coordinating this evening along with former Music Director, Leon Reid. Also joining us is Jeff Bolding of Abyssinian Baptist Church, The Daughters of the Flame, our Worship Choir, and our “in-house” gospel ensemble. The concert begins at 7.30pm. Plan to attend and bring a friend.
The church has agreed to accept the boiler proposal from East Coast Energy, once our boiler fund reaches $175,000. We’re about $50,000 away from that goal. As soon as we reach $175,000, we can sign the contract and East Coast will stop charging us for our temporary boiler (about $2,600 per week). So let us pray fervently and give generously to meet this goal.
To that end, there will be a benefit concert for the boiler fund Saturday, March 14. More details will be forthcoming, but for now, be sure to save the date!
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
