This coming Sunday, October 5, is a big day for our church and our First 7th worshiping community. For the past few months, as First 7th grew and gained momentum, they have held worship every four weeks. They have now reached an important milestone as they begin weekly worship services. So, how can you be a part of this exciting new chapter in this unfolding story of a new worshiping community at First Church? Here are a couple of great ways: First, keep First 7th in your prayers. Second, share First 7th with someone you know — not just through extending an invitation, but through offering to pick them up and bring them with you to the service.(see more)

“Each time we say yes, the Holy Spirit overshadows us and something new comes to birth in us…Perhaps not yet fully comprehending what our yes may mean, but in faith that surpasses our knowledge and trusting God with our very lives, may we boldly say with Mary: ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.’ So be it. Amen.” –FromMother Roots by Helen Bruch Pearson(see more)
