Who Touched Me? by Yongsung Kim

This Sunday at First Christian Church

We will examine the gospel stories of Christ's compassion in Mark, this Sunday, and clothing ourselves in compassion and love.

Our Sunday worship is at 10:00 a.m. in the church sanctuary - and livestreamed to our website, Facebook, and YouTube channel. We hope to "see" you there! Check in, and follow the service bulletin, here.

With increased immunity and vaccination rates in our in-person congregation, we are reducing the area of mask-required zones in the sanctuary. Please follow the signage, considering your own immunity and risk factors in selecting your choice of seating.

Adult study of the sermon and scripture references resumes this Sunday, June 27, immediately following the service (about 11:15 a.m.). Gather in the church library or via Zoom.

"Thank you!" from Mary & Paul Thompson

Dear Church Family,

Paul and I really enjoyed the wonderful brunch. It was such a joy to be able to have a real live (non-virtual) fellowship meal! And all of the food was delicious, of course!

Thanks also for the signed photo of the church chancel. It will always be treasured.

We are so grateful for your many expressions of love and support. FCC BR has been at the center of our lives for a long time, and we will continue to hold the church and each of you in our hearts and prayers – no matter where we are!

Thanks be to God for each of you, and for the faith that we share.

In Christ,
Mary and Paul Thompson

P.S. - New address! 1050 East Bend View, Greensboro, GA 30642.

The GRR Dwight Bailey Institute of Learning is launched!

Rev. Dwight K. Bailey was a beacon of love and service as a reconciling body of believers in the Great River Road region, and through a generous contribution, the Institute is launched in response to the GRR Future Story: Develop transformational clergy leaders who foster good collegial relationships and teach other, and resource congregational program life.

The fall, spring, and summer semester programs (in four series - Lay Leadership, Spiritual Formation, Technology, and The Bailey Series, of four classes each) will cost about $15, and will all be offered online, generally of an evening.

As part of the summer launch, however, two Saturday sessions will be offered this summer, at no cost: (1) Anti-Racism/Pro-Reconciliation Story Sharing Experiences will be facilitated by Rev. Donald Warren of FCC, Stuttgart, Arkansas, and Rev. Dr. Laurie Pound Feille, Sr. Minister of FCC, Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Saturday, July 17, from 10 a.m. 'til 2 p.m.

More information and registration for the July 17 course is available here.

There is interest in re-starting our Sunday morning time of Coffee Fellowship (probably before the ten 0'clock service), and we're gathering volunteers to create sufficient teams for a shared rotation of responsibility.

Would you be willing to be part of a rotating team of Coffee Fellowship hosts?Warming up some biscuits and starting a couple of pots of coffee (all provided by the church), along with clean up, are the Sunday duties. Other breakfast items are welcome, at the host team's discretion and expense.

Please contact the church office by email or phone 225-926-4175 if you'd like to volunteer, or if you have other suggestions or comments!
