Mid Week Messenger January 9
5 Things to know This Week @ First Pres
1 Super Sunday
"Super Sunday" happens Sunday, February 3. No, the Broncos won’t be playing that day, but there’s no reason not to celebrate God’s goodness and grace. Super Sunday will feature extra musical selections from our Chancel Choir and musicians, and Pastor MJ will share, “10 Things You Might Not Know About Jesus.” This is a great opportunity to invite friends, family, and others whom you believe might enjoy a boost of faith in their lives. More information and details will follow.
2 God’s House
Kids in “Ready Set Go” this week visit the wilderness of Jesus’ temptation, with some great practical applications in their own lives for avoiding temptation. We really encourage our older kids especially (gr. 4-6) not to miss it.
3 This Sunday
“Contagious Christianity” continues in worship with “Telling Your Story” from Acts 9 and 26, the testimony of the apostle Paul. It’s Part One of a two part exercise in learning to talk about our faith. The Chancel Choir will sing.
4 New volunteer staff
One of the things our Healthy Church prescriptions called for was a new organizational structure that replace team leaders with volunteer staff. We’re blessed with these individuals who have already come forward:
Joey Gacnik will serve as our Assimilation Director (formerly Evangelism & Membership) Dawn Pollmiller is our new Compassion Ministries Coordinator Jerry Chambers is our Fellowship Coordinator Rosa Salo will serve as our Human Resources Director Marilyn Chambers is our new Worship Arts Director
We are still seeking (1) a Bible Study & Small Groups Coordinator, (2) a Youth Ministries Coordinator, and (3) a Congregational Care Coordinator. Job descriptions will be available soon on the Information Station in the church foyer.
5 Help Wanted
In the area of paid staff, we are still (desperately) seeking a new Children’s Evangelist. This is an expanded version of our Children’s Minister position with a significantly increased salary. If you or someone you know might be interested, please contact Pastor MJ as soon as possible. The person who refers the successful candidate will receive extra jewels in his/her crown of glory.
