First Church Alert March 11th
5 Things to Know This Week @ First Pres
1 Run to the Cross
Rehearsals continue for our praise musical, “Run to the Cross.” A packed choir loft of our members and friends, under the direction of Dean Rees, performs this special presentation on Sunday, March 29, at 10 a.m. with accompaniment by the praise band. Don’t miss it!
2 A great opportunity for school aged kids & their families
School aged kids, join the fun beginning again on Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. as Friday Bible School keeps up its fun Board Games theme. Can’t commit to all six Fridays? Just come when you can. Check out more info and the link to registration at https://www.facebook.com/FridayBibleSchool/.
3 The Power of the Gospel: “A Most Astonishing Thing”
Our worship series continues this Sunday, March 15, with the story of Jesus’ resurrection of Jairus’ daughter (Matthew 9:18-26). The Chancel Choir will perform, “Stronger” from the “Run to the Cross” praise musical, and we’ll celebrate the Lord’s Supper.
4 A note on the Lord’s Supper
In light of heightened anxiety about the coronavirus (in addition to the many garden-variety flus and colds still going around), we’ll ask you to come forward for the Lord’s Supper, use a little hand sanitizer on the way, and receive an individual cup and a piece of bread from the elder serving. Extra hand sanitizer has been placed throughout the building for all to use.
5 Handy-Person of the Month
We’re looking for a few volunteers (individuals, couples, or families) who’d be willing to serve as “handy-person of the month.” The handy-person would be responsible for a weekly walk through, a check of the mailbox once a week for work requests, and any work s/he’s able to accomplish. If the work project is too big or outside help is required, s/he would just contact our B&G Chair, Ron Bay, for assistance. Sign up on Sunday or call the Church Office at 384-2852 if you’re available.
