First Church Alert March 4th
5 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres
1 It’s not too late
To try out a sermon-based small group during this season of Lent. Commit to just one group time with Vi Cunningham on Sundays at 11:15, Tom Aldea on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., or Pastor MJ on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. Any questions? Just call or text Pastor MJ at 469-7717.
2 Sink the Battleship!
School aged kids, join the fun beginning this Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. as Friday Bible School keeps up its fun Board Games theme. Check out more info and the link to registration at https://www.facebook.com/FridayBibleSchool/.
3 Jesus and free food--What could be better?
Each year, churches in our LJ Area Ministerial Association host worship & soup suppers on Friday evenings leading up to Easter. This Friday, March 6, is our turn! Come for this fun, short worship service, and stay for a delicious soup supper.
A huge thanks to our Chancel Choir for reprising “Amazing Grace,” the Praise Band for coming out, and the Compassion Team for cooking!
4 Sunday mornings for kids during Lent
Leading up to Easter on Sunday mornings, our God’s House Kidz will be discovering the story of Jesus’ last days. On Palm Sunday, April 6, they’re invited to be a part of our Palm Processional. After church that same day, we’ll host a Petting Zoo from 11 to 1. Kids are encouraged to bring a friend. Life--and church--are always more fun with friends, after all.
5 Spreading (only) the good news
We love to spread the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbors. What we don’t want to spread during this season of heightened anxiety about the coronavirus is our germs. We’ve placed extra hand sanitizer throughout the building, and kids in God’s House and the nursery will be using the hand sanitizer before and after their lessons and activities on Sunday mornings.
