Upcoming Events

21 Days of Prayer

This past Sunday, January 5, we kicked off our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. This is a time for our entire congregation to take time out of our busy lives and pray together. We do this as a church twice a year in January and August. This is a time for all of us to refocus our hearts and mind on God. We have printed a Prayer Guide for our church to follow. Each day has a theme and two prayers; one for the morning and one at night. If you would like to follow along with us, you can follow us on Facebook or Instagram where they will be posted each day. You can also download a PDF copy using the button below.


Small Group Retreat: January 17-19

Each Spring FC Students takes the High School students on their 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. This year, the dates are January 17-19. We will meet at the church at 5:00pm on Friday to leave and be back at the church by 2:00pm on Sunday. The deadline to sign up is this Sunday, January 12. In order to reserve your spot, you must sign up using the button below and turn in your $75. If you have any questions about the Small Group Retreat, please contact Taran Howell at thowell@firstcitychurch.org.

This training will take place January 12 and 19 in the Coffee House immediately following service. There is no need to RSVP, but if you would like to lead and can’t attend either training, please contact the church office.

Ministry Updates 

Small Groups

Our Spring Small Group Semester begins February 2 and sign-ups will begin January 26. The Small Group Fair will be set up in the Coffee House after service on January 26. This is an opportunity for all our members to see all small groups that are offered this semester and meet the leaders. If you are a small group leader, please plan to be at church by 9:30 that morning to help manage your booth. This is great way to meet potential group members and to help anyone sign up who is interested in joining your group. If you have any questions regarding small groups, please email smallgroups@firstcitychurch.org.
