Upcoming Events

21 Days of Prayer: August 4th-24th

We are looking forward to our 21 Days of Prayer starting August 4th. 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 at the beginning of the New Year and August before school starts. This is a time for all of us to refocus our hearts and mind on God. Each of the 21 days we will be posting a theme, prayer, scripture, and action step on our social media platforms. If you have not already, like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to get those daily updates starting August 4th.

Growth Track: August 9th from 6:00-8:00pm

If you are interested in learning more about First City and how to get involved in the life of our church, please plan to attend our quarterly Growth Track night. This will take place in the Coffee House on the 1st floor from 6:00-8:00pm. Dinner and childcare are provided. Please RSVP by emailing info@firstcitychurch.org with how many adults and children are planning to attending. 

Small Group Leader Training: August 11th at 12:30pm

Our Fall Small Group semester is just around the corner. We are so excited about what this semester has to bring and we would love for you to be a part of it. If you’re interested in leading a small group this Fall for the first time, you must attend Small Group Leader Training on August 11th. Also, if you have not already attended Growth Track, we would strongly encourage that you attend that on August 9th prior to attending SG Leader Training. If you have any questions regarding small groups or SG Leader Training, please email Mark Wise at mw32514@gmail.com or Donna Pennington at penningtonconnection@gmail.com.

Ministry Updates

Lift off with Love

We want to thank all of our members who donated to our Lift off with Love drive. All the items collected will help so many kids aging out of foster care transition into college with one less thing to worry about. Going to college can be scary, and we pray that these small items can be a huge blessing in their lives. Please continue to be in prayer for these children as they transition into a new phase of life and for God to give them peace in time of full of unknowns. 

FC Students – MOVE Summer Camp

Last week, our high school students attended CIY MOVE in Tennessee. While there, we took a deeper dive into the story of Elijah and found what we can learn from him and apply to our daily lives. Each student was able to take away something different and we believe this was truly a life-changing event for some of them. Thank you to all the leaders who were able to attend, scholarship donors, and everyone who prayed for the trip. Please continue to be in prayer for all of our students as they prepare to go back to school and that they can continue to grow in their relationships with the Lord. 

Ultimate Overnight

We are so excited for our 2019 Ultimate Overnight on 8:00pm on August 30th to 8:00am August 31st. This event is for all middle and high school students and it will cost $15 per student at the door to help cover for food and materials. More details about this event will be coming soon. Due to this event at the end of August, we have decided to cancel our August Student Night so we can make the Ultimate Overnight the best it can be for our students. There will be no Student Night on August 10th, but we will have the Ultimate Overnight August 30-31. If you have any questions about Student Night or the Ultimate Overnight, please contact Savannah Cox at scox@firstcitychurch.org.
