First Church Alert
5 Things to Know this Week @ First Church
1 Jesus A to Z
Jesus is the reason for all the seasons, so we’re spending the next eight months celebrating Jesus from A to Z. We begin with the ending this Sunday, with “A is for Amen” from Matthew 5:17-18, 10:40-42, and 17:19-20, with a celebration of the Lord’s Supper, presentation of 3rd grade Bibles, and special music from our friend Kaydence Lagergren, singing, "In Jesus' Name (God of the Possible)."
2 ARK returns to 10 a.m.
ARK for kids (pre-K through 5th grade) returns to 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 11. Kids worship with their families through the praise singing and greeting before heading downstairs after the Children’s Message with Miss Aricka. We want to thank everyone who taught and brought their kids early through the summer months.
3 Speaking of ARK: Cookies, coffee & crafts
Join the ARK kids after worship this Sunday, September 11, in the Fellowship Hall for our kick off party! Aricka Hulsey has put together some fun craft ideas for the WHOLE CHURCH FAMILY (even the men…really) to participate in.
4 Neighborhood Worship
We are so excited to take our worship out into the community on Sunday, September 25. On that morning, rather than coming to 20th & Raton, you’ll head to one of three host sites: the Aspen Center at Casa Del Sol with Don & Peggy Klinkerman, the Roots’ home in north La Junta with the Chambers’ helping host, or Pastor MJ’s house where the Gacniks will lead worship. We encourage you to invite friends and family to join you in these more casual gatherings.
5 Yea! We have a Fellowship Team!
We are so grateful that a group has stepped up to serve as our new Fellowship Team. Yea God! Thank you to DeAnn Palmer, Kenny Root and Denise Root. We have room for more on this team, so please let them know if you’d like to help out.
Don’t forget to sign up for Tables this Sunday!
