Grief Support Group

July 22nd


During Sunday School hour on 3rd Sundays, a Grief Support Group will meet in Wesley Hall. ANYone is welcome, and this is a group that will grow and shrink according to individuals’ needs. We will address issues common to ANY kind of grief (not just death or illness).

Fiesta Kids

Fiesta Kids is a new ministry that will be held weekly with snacks, games & Bible study during the summer on Wednesdays from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Looking for volunteers and sponsors. For more information contact Griselda at 469-494-7303 or gissel21@live.com.

VBS Materials

This year's VBS is taking place from July 8th through July 12th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The theme is Maker Fun Factory and kids discover they're lovingly crafted by God. On this interactive adventure, curious kids become hands-on inventors and experience God - the ultimate Maker - in new and wildly creative ways! It's for ages 4 years to 5th grade. Click here to register your child or volunteer to help out.

 

The children’s ministry needs Pringle’s cans, paper towel rolls, and toilet paper rolls for VBS. Please put them in the box in the Children’s Building.

Know the Good News!

Our contemporary and Spanish-language services teamed up to work on the community garden and 3 houses. (Wow!)

 

Our youth will help with hurricane relief and wheelchair ramps on their mission trips this summer.

 

Our giving in December 2017 was $22,000 more than 2016. (Thank you!)

Our estimates of giving for 2018 were up $13,000 over 2017. (Sounds like a good future!)


Our church still has 8 more months for God’s call of generosity in 2018. Jan-March fell a little short, but the good news is, we still have time to reach our estimated goal


Your Finance Committee asks you to consider the good news about First Church and the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We give to bless others, so we invite you to join us in giving like we believe the Good News!
