Ready to hear a little good news for a change? Here at First Church there’s plenty of it — and this week is no exception! During Advent our congregation gave more than $56,000 to help support our outreach ministries. These dollars, plus the dollars contributed during Lent via our Easter Offering will help fund our ministries and activities that serve people in need in our city, including: providing food, clothing, mentoring, house building, support after disasters, educational support for students, financial aid for low income people — and the list goes on. These services are administered through several ministries throughout the year. On behalf of these ministries, we thank you — and plan to keep sharing the good news of all the ways your generosity serves those in need in our community!
