You can drop off any of the items requested at the church on Wednesday or Friday evenings from 6:00 – 8:30 or Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 1:00.

Is anyone among you sick? – This line from James 5:14 begins a passage of scripture that many have trusted for centuries. Tonight, our Bible Study continues a conversation about healing. We’ll be focused on the healing ministry of Jesus and the need for healing in our lives. Join us tonight at 7:00 for a rich conversation that could bring you closer to God.
Life has so many challenges and questions, and many folks are looking for ways to handle what’s happening more effectively. One way to address some of the questions or difficulties in your life is to find out what God says about these things. You’re invited to join a safe space where people can talk or just listen to how God’s word speaks to our joys and concerns. We start at the church at 7:00. Everyone is welcome, whether you’ve never opened a bible or whether you’ve read it through several times. Everyone means EVERYONE! We’re a safe and welcoming community.
Looking for something fun, free, and easy to do this weekend? Join your friends and neighbors in the area of Baynes and Potomac on the West Side for a free community picnic at the church. There will be games, bounce houses, and plenty of good food. It’s a great way to spend some time on a Saturday afternoon.
Join us at the corner of Baynes and Potomac from 3:00 to 6:00.
On Wednesday, July 24th, we’re having a community dinner. There will be plenty of great food and conversation. These dinners are totally free, and everyone is invited to join in the fun.

Friends, we’re excited for another great night of studying God’s word. If you’ve tried Bible studies before but found them difficult to understand or irrelevant to your life, you should spend some time with us. Our conversations are engaging, honest, and practical. We’ll gather tonight at 7:00. Come and enjoy!
We’re looking forward to a great night of learning and conversation on Wednesday, June 26. We’ll be continuing our study of Matthew, looking at more teachings of Jesus as we journey with the disciples. Join us at 7:00 and take a closer walk with Christ.
On Sunday, April 14th, Holy week begins with the celebration of Jesus’ triumphal entrance into the city of Jerusalem. We’ll be remembering the story as we continue our Lenten study on forgiveness. How could things move so quickly from this tremendous celebration of Jesus on Sunday to a mob shouting for His death on Friday? The crowd in Jerusalem does what many people do in their hearts when the truth of Jesus is real in our lives. Amazingly, is the fact that Jesus is able to pray for everyone’s forgiveness as he hangs in agony on the cross. Join us as we learn from this incredible example of the power of love.
Join your friends at First Church tonight for a great time of fellowship and fun at a free, community dinner. There will be free lasagna dinner for all who attend. Come out, meet your neighbors, skip the stove, and have a good time. We’re eating at 6:00! See you then!
