We want to be a church where the past is not fatal, the present has power and the future has hope because of Jesus Christ. We talked a lot in the recent two series about focusing on and following Jesus. Read more….
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10. God has given each of us gifts to be able to serve others according to His plan for our lives but maybe you haven’t discovered your gifts or His plan yet. If you would like to discover His gifts and strengthen your connection to Jesus by serving others, come to one of our Spiritual Gifts seminars.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. -Mark 10:45. Serve day is an international initiative started by Church of the Highlands in Alabama, and here in Butler, we are catching on!! First Church will be joining with other Butler churches on Saturday, July 13 to bless our community and share the love of God through practical acts of serving and kindness. Though it’s only one day, we hope that Serve Day inspires you and your family to sow your lives in service throughout the year. Check out the Serve Day table at your worship service this weekend to sign your family up to participate. We’ll start the day off by gathering together at Crossfire at 9 a.m. and then going off to our community service projects. You can sign up for the following teams: Butler City Litter Pickup, Butler City Prayer Walk, The Lighthouse Playground Beautification, Senior Citizen Yard Beautification, Eastbrook Mission Barn work day, Car Wash and Ice Cream giveaway at Crossfire and Home and Yard Maintenance at the home of a veteran’s widow. The details of each project are included on the sign-up sheets.
