The Pantry Is Stocked!!!!
Because of the gracious and substancial monetary gift from a friend of First Church, we no longer need to receive foods or cash donations to the Food Ministry for the rest of the 2020 Calendar Year!! Praise the Lord!! However, if you are still looking for a way to give above and beyond, consider giving to the First Church General Budget. We are still in a budget shortfall and need your gifts.
Get a head start on Sunday's Teaching

Philippians 4:11-13 (NRSV)

11 Not that I am referring to being in need; for I have learned to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
