"Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above"
Arr. by Mary McDonald

Hymns
"Holy, Holy, Holy" #4, vs.1+4 

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Thy works praise thee in earth and sky and sea;
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee;
God most holy, merciful and mighty!
holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God, all holy, blessed Trinity!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Thy works praise thee in earth and sky and sea;
All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea;
God most holy, merciful and mighty!
holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God, all holy, blessed Trinity!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!


"Rejoice, You Pure in Heart" #15, vs.1+5

Rejoice, you pure heart; lift praises to the sky;
your festive banner wave with joy, the cross of Christ raise high!
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks and sing.

Praise God who rules all worlds; the risen Christ adore.
Praise God the Spirit, Holy Fire, one God for evermore!
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, give thanks and sing.

Crisis Control Ministry

Well, the Summer season has officially started: Total is Memorial Day: I say
thank you to all who have served our country over the years.
Special days come and go, but hunger finds a place in every day. 
The month of June is designated for  CANNED MEATS, such as chicken, beef, tuna, Spam, Salmon,  as Crisis Control Ministry's food of the month. This is one of the more costly foods they choose, but this is very important to the well being of the recipients. Even though I have suggested a few, anything you want to add to that list is perfectly okay. 

Your faithfulness to continue with this project is overwhelming. Thank all of you so much. Many people have food on their tables only because of your willingness to share. FCC will be opening soon and you can bring those things you have been collecting. They will be taken to the Ministry. God's blessings!
 
Much love,
Becky Minnix
Christian Action Ministry
First Christian Friends,

With thankful hearts, we welcome June!

We are happy to report that we are still in operation, in solidarity with our community, as we continue to provide food and other needs during this pandemic!

Also, during this time we have been able to partner with Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Hope Truck of Winston Salem and Krankies Coffee,  to provide food for senior citizens in our community that are food insecure via a food prescription program. This is a new project and we hope to provide further updates as this initiative continues and develops. 

We continue to be grateful for all of your support and prayers! Please continue to bring your peanut butter and jelly.  Share this good news of the gospel with your friends and coworkers. As we continue to put faith in action, through the practice of shared abundance, with our neighbors in Winston  Salem! Donations can be brought to the church and left at the office door if the church is locked.

Peace and continued shared abundance,
Rev. David Harrison Jr. and Paul Gillespie
 #sharedabundance #hungersucks

A special word of thanks to all of our volunteers! 
Without you, none of this would be possible!

If you would like to volunteer please contact Paul or David for more information.
