I hope you are doing well and enjoying all that Christ is for you today! It has been a great delight to go to Him all week long and pour out our hearts to Him. He is a faithful Savior who has heard and will answer in ways beyond our imagination. All praise to the King!
Here’s what’s coming up this weekend at First.
Prayer Meeting and Dinner Tonight
In just thirty minutes (6pm) we’ll gather for prayer in Gano Chapel. Don’t worry if you’re late. We’ll be there for about an hour. Afterwards at 7pm we’ll head downstairs and enjoy dinner together.
During the month of January, you’ll notice tables set up around the building where you can fill out a name tag to wear during the service. Not only will this simple gesture reduce awkwardness when greeting one another, more importantly it will help us continue to build a strong community here at First. Thank you for your participation.
We begin Sunday morning at 9.45am with classes for all ages. Please take children to the Chapel for check-in. Adults can head to Gano Chapel, where I will continue the discussion on church governance. The passage we will discuss is Acts 20.17–38. I invite you to read and ponder it ahead of Sunday morning.
Sunday worship begins at 11am. The songs we’ll sing include All Creatures of Our God and King, Praise My Soul the King of Heaven, Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?, Before the Throne of God Above, and And Can It Be. I’ll continue my series on Jesus’ parables on Luke. Read Luke 7.36–50 as you prepare your heart to worship.
Annual Corporate Meeting
This begins at 1pm in the Chapel. Very important matters will be discussed and voted on by the church, including new officers and the annual budget. The trustees whose terms are expiring are Eric Birk, Winston James, and Wendy Sharp. Since this is a corporate meeting, the quorum is 40. Members are strongly encouraged to attend.
New Members Class
We’re organizing a new class for anyone interested in learning more about our church and how to become a member. Please contact Nick Peterson or Clarice Turnbull if you’d like more info.
Ladies Bible Study
A new study begins Thursday at 10am. This will focus on Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians. If you were not able to sign up but are interested in attending, please contact Kimberly Hoskinson.
Looking forward to seeing you this weekend!
