We will be studying Lee Strobel’s bestselling book, as well as watching the movie which was released last year. This book delves into the reliability of the Bible and proves that Christ is indeed exactly who He claims to be.
Studies will be at 10:30. Karen Henderson and Wendy Daniel are coordinating this study.
Please join us for this powerful study and enjoy fellowship and spiritual growth. We welcome you all!
For More information please contact the church office at 572-3581 or Pattie Grubbs at 470-5606.
The Ladies’ Circle will meet Tuesday at 10:30 AM in the Philathea Room.
Our studies this year will be taken from the book “Attitude Is Your Paintbrush, It colors every Situation” by James W. Moore. We will cover such subjects as, The Attitude of Gratitude, The Attitude of Compassion, and many other aspects that make up our lives. Eloise Wilder will be the leader. All ladies are encouraged to attend for a time of “study and fellowship”.
New Plans for First Pres Youth!
Just a few days ago the session, as a further investment in our Year of the Child emphasis, voted to hire LeeAnne Pulliam as our new youth coordinator. We are planning now for twice a month meetings with middle and high school youth, and once a month for the younger kids. Each month we are also looking at a service or fun event for all.
LeeAnne is a young adult with a combination of skills and faith. She is an active member of her church in Roxboro, NC, married to a race car driver, and is a physical therapist by trade. She says she is “diligent in communication, thrives in creativity, and always gives 200%!” She is now a professional photographer, and was a cheerleader for the Carolina Panthers football team, so we are praying for God to use all of her background and organizational skill to make wonderful things happen here.
Look for her contact, as groundwork begins immediately for a strong and hopeful ministry. Kickoff event will be scheduled for mid-September, but preliminary meetings will begin sooner. You will be blessed as soon as you meet her.

Pig Pickin’ In October
In order to take advantage of more daylight and to utilize our new Fellowship Picnic Shelter, we are planning our annual Pig Pickin’ for Sunday evening, October 15 at 5 pm. The playground may be completed by then, and we will also have outdoor activities for the kids and adults. Soccer, football, volley ball, and corn-hole games will be there as well. We will eat at the picnic shelter, and the Fellowship Hall will be also be available for inside dining.
Rogation Service on October 23
Our second Annual Rogation Service will happen at 3pm on Sunday, October 23. We had about 25 animals and their pet humans last year. Be sure to bring your pets on that day. The worship time, for all creatures great and small, and blessing of the animals and crops will be a special time for all. We will give thanks to God for his creation and providence, and urge you to not only be there, but invite friends and neighbors as well.
The session, on recommendation of Christian Education committee, approved purchase of new playground equipment for a north property playground near the new picnic shelter. The cost will be about $7500. This may be the lasting legacy you want to give to the church, so if you would like to contribute towards that project, mark your gifts appropriately or ask a session member about it.
If we need to cancel or adjust worship or ministry events due to weather,
we will send a church email and post news in this section of our page about
whether we will proceed or adjust due to or because of weather.
May God bless us all and keep us safe
as we continue to be the church in all kinds of weather!

This is the last month to collect.
This project is a great way to get rid of broken and any unused crayons laying around, and keep them out of the landfill. We have collected quite a few boxes and the bin is fairly full, but we would love to have several containers to give to Matthew Bain in his efforts to help children in hospitals have a little joy.
