A Word From Dr. Jeff
Happy New Year and welcome to 2022! This is going to be an exciting year of ministry and opportunity to serve God as the First Family. Our mission remains the same, To Impact Our World By Making Christ Known. Our priority and focus are to share Jesus through all our ministries. If you’re not a committed participant in a ministry then you are being called to roll up your sleeves to join us in the work! We need you to strengthen and increase our ministry efforts in every area of our church, from the preschool ministry to our beloved Young In Heart ministry. In 2022 we will do more outreach/evangelism efforts to our town and teach you to share Jesus with others as you do life. We will live love loudly and be a gospel-centered church that faithfully shares the claims of Jesus. To be clear...we will be faithful stewards of the gospel to make the Good News is known in Walterboro and beyond.
Your church needs you this year beginning immediately! You’re needed for the ministries God has placed on our hearts and has called us to as a church. Your commitment to serve is necessary so the ministries will flourish. We need you in the “First Family jersey and on the field” to join us and others as leaders to strengthen ministries like the children’s ministry, student ministry, and our many outreach opportunities throughout the year. There are so many places for you to use your willingness to serve others.
We have not arrived as a church, yet our ministries are increasing and improving. We are not where we were a year ago. We have seen God’s hand upon us and the Lord has honored our faithfulness! I am grateful that we are experiencing the fresh wind of God’s Spirit in worship. Each Lord’s Day is filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit. There is an expectancy in the air every Sunday morning that God will speak to our hearts in the Worship Celebration.
Psalm 95:6-7 states, “O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.” As we gather each Sunday in Worship Celebration, prepare to hear from God!
