A Note From Pastor David

by Pastor David Alexander
A Note From Pastor David

Dear First Family,

I am excited to share with you about what’s coming up this weekend, but before I do I want to celebrate the joy we shared last Sunday afternoon as 62 students professed their faith in Christ and became full members of our church family during our Confirmation Commitment Service.

The names of each of those who took that significant step are listed at the bottom of today’s email. I hope you will join me in welcoming and celebrating each of them!

This weekend we begin an important series in our church entitled, “What’s Next?”. Next Sundayafternoon, April 22nd, at 3:00 pm in our Sanctuary we will be sharing the plans developed by our Building Planning team to address our current and future facility needs in order to reach the growing community we serve.

The question, What’s Next?, is the question that has guided our leadership teams during this season of discerning God’s future for us. As we begin taking steps towards that future, we are spending these next four weeks remembering that who we are today is a reflection of the bold steps of faith those who came before us took in response to that critical question.

We begin that focus this weekend with a special guest preacher, Rev. Mike Ramsdell, who served as Senior Pastor here from 1995 to 2015. Pastor Mike will be sharing more about how this church responded to this critical question in the early years of his ministry here. I know you will be blessed by what he shares this weekend.

Today, I would like to invite all the men in our church for the next gathering of Guys Night Out onFriday, April 20th at 6:30 pm in our Sanctuary. Again, it will be a night full of all things that guys love, none of which will get you in trouble with your wife or your mom! You will get the chance to hear from Gene Schramme and $20 will buy you dinner and put your name in the hat for great giveaways. Please register here.

I hope you will make every effort to be here in worship this weekend and I hope you will continue to pray with me as we move through these next four weeks. May God bless and direct our hearts and minds as we seek to be faithful to do for others what others have done for each of us.

Grace & Peace,

Pastor David
