First City Family,

We know that you are all excited for when we can meet in person again. We are too – we’ve missed seeing your faces each week! Over the past several weeks our leadership team has begun to prepare and plan for our reopening of our church facilities and ministries on Sunday, May 31 for Encounter Sunday. We anticipate this to happen in phases, with immediate adjustments as needed, and we recognize this plan will likely evolve in the months ahead. We want you to know that as a church family we are committed to: Flexibility, Safety, and Proactivity. Our phased opening will follow CDC and state guidelines as they have over the past few weeks. Your input will play a key role in helping to map out where we go from here! Please take a few minutes to complete this survey by Friday, May 22nd. Thank you in advance for your feedback.

First City has wrapped around our community in more ways than one during this pandemic. We asked everyone to join us on the Streets of Prayer app to help cover Escambia county in prayer during this time of quarantine. The goal is while you’re out riding bikes, walking, or driving around your neighborhood, just stop and say a prayer for everyone who lives around you, their well-being, and their relationship with Jesus during these hard times. If you’re interested in learning more about Streets of Prayer, click the button below. First City has also stepped up in an amazing way to partner with Feed Fosters NWF over the past few weeks to continue to feed the foster families across Northwest Florida. Just this week, Feed Fosters was able to feed 1,013 people, or 180 families! That is amazing and we couldn’t have done it without your support. Feed Fosters is currently planning their next meal for the foster families for the end of May/beginning of June. If you would like to continue to support these families during the pandemic, you can sponsor a family’s meal by giving online at the button below or by mailing a check directly to First City Church at 1301 E. Gadsden Street Pensacola, FL 32501. If you want to give online, be sure to click “Feed Fosters” in the Fund dropdown menu. If you want to mail a check, be sure to put “Feed Fosters” in the memo line. Thank you for continuing to serve our community during these times!



FC Students is sad to inform you that MIX for our middle school students has been cancelled for June 22-26. At this time we are doing what we can to try to plan another event for our middle school students. As we put together this plan, we will keep you updated with new dates and information. Our camp for high schoolers, MOVE, has not been cancelled as of today, but is still tentative. If MOVE is cancelled in the coming weeks, we will plan a joint trip for all middle and high school students together in July. MOVE will take place July 13-18 in Cleveland, Tennessee at Lee University. The cost for MOVE is $310 and this covers transportation to and from, lodging, food, and materials. You don’t have to pay this amount all at once, but we do ask that you give a $50 deposit per student to reserve his/her spot. Please know that if you give a deposit, or any other amount towards MOVE, and the trip is cancelled, you will be given a full refund. If you have any other questions regarding FC Students, or MIX or MOVE, please email Taran at You can reserve your student’s spot for MOVE by clicking the button below:
We miss our FC Kids so much and we have some great things planned for when they get to come back like our Ice Cream Sundae Party. Don’t forget to show your kids our FC Kids Challenges so they can get as many toppings as they want on their sundae. Also, check out our weekly curriculum and activities for FC Kids and the challenges in FC Kids Dropbox. If you have any questions regarding FC Kids, please email


We love engaging with you online each week on Sunday mornings at 10:00am for our online service. Remember you can watch on Facebook and YouTube. There you can also find our weekly FC Kids service video. Please be in prayer about our reopening strategy and how we can best serve our families while also keeping them safe. Please let us know if you have any questions or have a need we can help with by contacting the church office at (850)433-0210 or email us at

God bless,

Savannah Cox
