e-newsletter  //  September 20, 2014

In our lives, a half-hearted effort usually doesn't accomplish much. Most things worthwhile require a determined, focused commitment. Now is the time to call out our very best for something of supreme value, Christ's Church. Generations have served faithfully in the past, laying a solid foundation and leaving us a legacy. Now a new generation is invited to make the commitment to say, "I'M ALL IN" for this new season ahead. Nothing less than a renewed vision will bring about a rebirth of First Christian for the future.  Join us THIS SUNDAY as Steve shares our vision to reach, win and grow!
