A Note From Pastor David

by Pastor David Alexander
A Note From Pastor David

Dear First Family,

In case you have not heard, we have 17 worship services over the next three days!

We will have all of our regular weekend worship services including Saturday Night, 8:15, 9:30 and 11 in our sanctuary as well as the Well and Cafe services at that same hour.

We are also having our Taste of Christmas celebration this weekend. Bring your peanut free snacks on a disposable tray, along with the recipe, to the Atrium on December 22 and 23 — and enjoy the treats that others have brought as well. If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Hardeman.

Our Christmas Eve services begin on Sunday afternoon and we have 11 opportunities for you and three ways you can be a part of helping your church share the gift of Christmas.

  1. Invite a friend, family member, neighbor, co-worker or friend!
  2. Participate yourself, with a guest or your family in one of these services!
  3. Serve as a greeter and help welcome others!

We are expecting over 6,000 to participate in the Christmas Eve services!

If you would like to help ensure that all feel warmly welcomed, you can sign up to volunteer by visiting this link on our website.

I appreciate your prayers for all we will do together over the next several days and I want you to hear how grateful I am for your commitment to living out our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ who love God, love others and serve the world.

I look forward to seeing you this weekend!

Grace & Peace,
Pastor David
