2023 has arrived! Happy New Year!
It has been a great year in 2022 with amazing leaders in place and progress in our shared ministries here at First Christian Church. Let’s make 2023 a year of reaching out to our community even more. Inviting our friends and neighbors to our worship services and Bible studies. What we have is an amazing, solid foundation in which to grow our fellowship. Jesus is our cornerstone!! So, let’s make 2023 a banner year.
Our AWANA Club is off to a great start and we are moving into our second semester. Be sure to pray for this ministry and all of our dedicated leaders. Every Wednesday night they are being taught about Jesus Christ and memorizing Bible verses. This is what will change lives and bring families to Jesus.
New Bible Study
I will be starting a new Bible Study here at the church on Tuesday nights at 7:00 in the Cornerstone room. I will be walking through some of the books of the Bible and some topical issues as we journey together. I will be leading these studies from Max Lucado books and you will not have to purchase and material. Just bring your Bible and an open heart. I hope you will join me on January 17th at 7 PM to grow in our faith and draw nearer to God through study.
New Vision Meeting
We had a great response to our first Vision Meeting last October. We have now scheduled another follow-up meeting that I hope all of you can attend. This meeting will be right after church on January 15th in the sanctuary. As soon as worship is over, you will be offered a light lunch and our meeting will follow. Where do we want this church to be in 5 years, 10 years? Try to think about this and pray about this prior to us coming together and simply trust God for the outcome. I hope to see you there.
It’s a new year with new energy and hope for an exciting future for our church. May God richly bless us as we trust Him to lead us every step of the way.
Your friend in Christ,
