This Weekend at First (2/27/15)

Here’s a look ahead to what God has in store for us this weekend at First!

Forward on Our Knees

Tomorrow (Saturday) morning we will gather in the Chapel at 10am to spend an hour in prayer, and then hit the streets to invite our neighbors to the concert tomorrow night. It’s a prayer and mission event we call Forward on Our Knees. Hope to see you there!

Black History Month Concert

Tomorrow night at 7.30pm is our concert in celebration of God’s grace to African- and Caribbean-Americans. Come for a lively night of worship as we sing and hear the gospel in song. Clarice Turnbull, Leon Reid, Jeff Bolding and the Daughters of the Flame, and others will sing. Make your plans to join us for this celebration service!

Sunday worship

Here’s a look ahead at the songs we plan to sing Sunday morning.

The sermon text will be Isaiah 19–20.

Luncheon Sunday

After worship we will have a fellowship meal in Haldeman Chapel. All are invited and there is no charge. The luncheon is provided by Cynthia Jalando-on in honor of her mother Consolacion’s 90th birthday.

If You Could Ask God One Question

​Next ​Friday is the next discussion for all who are interested in the topic, “Why does a loving God send people to hell?” Join us at 7pm here at First. Christians may attend with a non-Christian guest.


Spring Benefit Concert

Saturday, March 14 at 7pm, we will host a concert to benefit the boiler project. Dr. Linda Marcel, a colleague of Gordon Scott, has assembled a talented array of musicians to perform classical and modern-classical selections for the enjoyment of our people and neighborhood.


Easter Offering

This year’s Easter Offering will benefit the boiler fund. We’re about $50,000 away from being able to sign a contract and stop paying the $2,600 each week for the temporary boiler. So let us pray fervently and give generously to meet this goal.


Baptism and New Members Class

Want to know more about baptism? Considering becoming a member of our church? Classes for both baptism and membership will be offered soon. Please contact Matthew or Gordon if interested.

​See you Sunday!
