The North Street Congregations invite you to join us for one or both of the services to be held this Sunday, October 11, 2015.
First Baptist Church will hold its Sunday Worship service at 9:30 a.m. this coming Sunday as usual. The Rev. Dr. Gary Reif, Transitional Pastor, will deliver a sermon entitled “A Privilege Under Grace” with 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 as the primary scripture. The “Preparation for Worship” reading printed at the top of the bulletin is –
“Christianity isn’t meant to simply be believed; it’s meant to be lived, shared, eaten, spoken, and enacted in the presence of other people. I can’t be Christian on my own. I need a community, I need the church.” Rachel Held Evans, Searching for Sunday
Please join us to learn more. Our “ Community in Reflection and Prayer” service will feature the hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” and an opportunity to light a candle for a private prayer during the service. Jacob Garrett will serve as the lay leader. Worship services include, depending on the Sunday, a small choir and a variety of instruments including organ, piano, flute, cello, guitar, and hand bells (not a bell choir).
