Upcoming Events

Student Night: January 12 from 6:00-9:00pm

FC Students is hosting their monthly Student Night for students in 6th-12th grade this Saturday, January 12th from 6:00-9:00pm. This night is “Superhero” themed and we want to see your best superhero costumes in action. We will eat dinner, worship, have a lesson, challenge one another, and end the night watching The Incredibles. Come prepared for a SUPER night!

Small Group Retreat: January 18-20

Each Spring FC Students takes the High School students on the annual Small Group Retreat to Panama City Beach. We take this time to help our High School students grow closer to the Lord and also to help them grow closer to one another in the process. This year the dates are January 18-20 and the deadline to sign up is this Sunday, January 13. In order to reserve your spot you must turn in a permission slip and bring your $75. If you have already reserved your spot, packing lists will be available this weekend. If you have any questions about the Small Group Retreat, please contact Savannah Cox at scox@firstcitychurch.org.

LIFT Experience: January 23 from 5:30-8:00pm

LIFT Experience is a night designed to move our congregation further into God’s calling  to take care of the most vulnerable in our community: our foster children. Through an art museum atmosphere we hope to raise awareness of the pain foster children are facing, demonstrate the need for urgent intervention, and envision the potential that can be reached if we allow God to reach these children through us.
 
The evening will begin with some hors d’oeuvres followed by a short film, a walk through the exhibit halls, and end with a chance to decide how you want to get involved in supporting foster children and families. Due to the heavy nature of the night, we will only allow High School students or older to go through the experience. However, we will have child care provided for babies through middle school.

Small Group Fair: January 27

The Spring Small Group semester begins Sunday, January 27. This semester is 13 weeks long and will start January 27 and finish April 27. Sunday, January 27, we will have our Small Group Fair in the Coffee House between services. Please plan on joining us so you can take time to explore each small group offered this semester and to meet all the small group leaders face-to-face prior to the first meeting. This is a great time to get signed up for a group and get involved here in the life of First City.
