A Note From Pastor Davidby Pastor David Alexander
Dear First Family,
I hope you had a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday and a great week. It was a quiet few days here on campus with many of our staff taking some well-deserved vacation. I continue to enjoy seeing all of your #SummerofJoy pictures that you have shared which you can also see at the beginning of each of our services this weekend.
Today I want to tell you about three important opportunities.
This weekend our Military Ministry is collecting supplies for the USO Outreach program to bless soldiers traveling through DFW Airport. Collection stations will be available outside of worship spaces. For a complete list of items being collected, visit fmcm.org/military. If you have any questions, contact Erica Uplinger.
This Tuesday, July 10th we will be having a special time of Prayer and Sending for our team that will be traveling to Rwanda July 10th - 19th. This team will meet and celebrate the orphan communities we are supporting in Rwanda through our partnership with ZOE Ministry.
If you are available, I would love for you to join me in our Chapel at 1:30 pm on Tuesday as we pray a special prayer of blessing over these brothers and sisters who go to represent the generosity and grace of our entire church family during this special trip. To learn more about our partnership with ZOE, please visit this link on our website.
We are one week away from the kick off of United Mission Week, our annual serving event for Junior High and High School students here in our local community and in surrounding areas.
We will kick that off in a special way this year with a Blood Drive in honor and memory of Amanda Ferguson next Sunday, July 15th from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm. There will be two buses located in our parking lot by Building D. For more information or if you are interested in donating visit our website.
Each of these opportunities is an expression of one of our core values - We believe that serving Jesus means serving others.
It is always a joy to see how well you live that out as a community of faith. It’s who you are and one of the many reasons it is such an honor to serve this great church family.
If you missed last week and did not get the chance to meet Shea Reyenga, our new minister of Evangelism and Teaching, I hope you will do so this weekend. To learn more about Shea and his family, you can check out this post on my blog.
I look forward to seeing you in worship this weekend as we continue celebrating our Summer of Joy!
Grace & Peace,
