First Church Alert
5 Things to Know this Week @ First Church
1 Tables Sunday
We celebrate the return of Tables this fall! What is Tables? It’s a small group ministry in which groups of 6-8 adults meet on the first Sunday of the month in the home of one of the group members. We eat, read scripture, and discuss its meaning for our lives, before closing in prayer. This Sunday, we’ll enjoy a preview of the Tables ministry when we gather in the Fellowship Hall for worship. Please come!
2 ELEVATE High School Youth Group Lock in
High school youth (gr. 9-12), you’re invited to our kick-off lock-in at 10 p.m. this Friday, August 26 (after the Burlington game). You’ll head home at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning after a night of fun and fellowship.
3 Fan Coil Unit update
The 18 new fan coil units are in place throughout the Education Wing of the church. Four of the units (in the bathrooms) need cabinets, one unit is missing a part, and all of them seem to be overloading the electrical system and tripping a breaker periodically. In short, we’re almost there, but not quite.
4 Watch your mailboxes
An old-fashioned church newsletter (real paper!) is on its way, with all the latest announcements in one place. Watch your mailbox!
5 A new year for MOPS
Presenting the theme for this year's MOPS series: WE GO TOGETHER. Our international MOPS leaders have declared this the year of friendship, courage and purpose. Our MOPS group, led by Aricka Hulsey meets the first Wednesday of the month (next meeting 9/7). If you are ready to build friendships with other local moms who love God and cheer you on every step of the way, come and join us!
