First Church Alert February 26th
First Church Alerts
We will begin our first week of Lent this Sunday with our new worship series The Power of the Gospel. Come and listen to the word of God as we begin in Matthew 14:14-20 as Jesus exorcises the demon that the disciples are unable to cast out.
2 Power Groups
Power Groups meet throughout Lent to study and discussion Jesus’ acts of power as we discover them in Sunday worship. Power Groups will meet Sundays at 11, Tuesdays at 6:30 and Thursdays at 7. Let us know you’re coming by signing up or contacting the Church Office.
We will be starting a MOPS group on March 27th! We are in need of a couple Mentor Moms! These are older moms who usually have a successful child out in the world who can offer spiritual guidance as well as come to all of our meetings and contribute in helping the moms in anyway. If you’re interested you can contact Aricka at 719.468.0234. Please feel free to text her anytime.
4 Choir message from Dean
This is an important week for the First Presbyterian Church Choir. We have an opportunity to come together and prepare a very special worship experience to share with our growing church. We will, of course, rehearse on Thursday evening at the usual time and prepare our anthem for this Sunday, March 1. The choir will perform "Blood of Jesus Be My All" from the Praise and Worship collection that celebrates the Lenten and Easter season. We'll also look at the pieces for the next several Sundays that are also drawn from the "cantata". We might sing "Amazing Grace" so to be ready for the ecumenical Lenten service held at our church on Friday, March 6.
More importantly, however, is the rehearsal on Saturday morning (Feb. 29) with breakfast at 8:30 and rehearsal to follow. I strongly encourage you to attend this rehearsal because it will truly be the very best way for us to kick-start a successful and worshipful musical event on March 29 and throughout Lent. This practice will allow you to feel comfortable and confident with the music. And it will help us all experience the feeling of closeness to God that singing together creates. Once we get a grasp on the notes, that is!
5 Zero to Hero
If you appreciated Nate Wilson’s story of healing and restoration, you’ll want to know more. Copies of his book Zero to Hero are available for $10 in the Church Foyer. It’s a great story to share with others who may be struggling with addiction in their own lives or the life of someone they love.
Finally… Prayers We ask for prayers for Kristen and Steve Elwood has family, upon the death of her father Lyle Jarvis; for Mike Miller receiving treatment for cancer; in thanksgiving with Denise and Kenny Root upon the birthday of daughter Anna’s new son Karter.
