We are happy to welcome guest preacher, Rev. Jim Turner, Jr., to First Christian Church this Sunday. Rev. Jim Warren will take a break from preaching on the first Sunday of each month through September.
Jim Turner's sermon, You Are Not Alone On The Journey, is inspired by Exodus 13:17-22 and Romans 12:9-15. Come hear him preach at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service or the 10:15 a.m. progressive service.
Our gift of music at the 9:00 a.m. service will be presented by Maddie Chapman, on piano! At the 10:15 a.m. progressive service the One and All band will not disappoint. Come to Fellowship Hall for that service and enjoy a light, complimentary breakfast as you worship.
Gifts for Another Table:
This month we collect for the faithful Ministry and More food pantry. Please bring rice and rice dinners, potato dinners, pasta of any kind, pasta sauce, Hamburger Helper, dinner meals, cereal, mashed/boxed potatoes, and canned fruits and vegetables. Thank you!
