Prepare Him Room

This Christmas let's "Prepare Him Room"
Advent is the time of year we prepare, with expectancy, for the arrival of Christ in Christmas. This year we will be celebrating God "for" us in His authority and power, God "with" us in His humanity and suffering, and God "in" us through the Holy Spirit. We are praying that this Christmas is a time of intimate worship and joyous celebration for every one of us in our church family.

Colossians

New Vision: "Transform the Heart...Transform the Home...Transform the World"
New Mission: "Building mature followers of Jesus through the Church and home."

Paul's letter in the Bible we call Colossians could have been written with our church mission statement in mind. "He (Jesus) is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." (1:28).

Becoming a mature follower of Jesus requires that we have a clear and glorious picture of who Jesus is and commit ourselves to be transformed by the Holy Spirit. Join us as we study and apply the book of Colossians on Sunday mornings to transform our hearts, homes, and our world to Love Jesus, Live for Jesus, and Lead People to Jesus!

Living With Dual Citizenship

In this election season we need to remember we have “Dual Citizenship”! The Apostle Peter says we are to live in this world as “temporary residents and foreigners” because we are first and foremost residents of the “kingdom of God”. This means we live out Jesus' commands in the power of His Spirit, then we work for His good and glory in this world. This will only be accomplished as we worship our Sovereign King Jesus, submit our will to His, and pray for the Church to be the “light of the world”.
So today we join together in humble prayer and worship, based on God’s Word!
" . . . if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place." 2 Chronicles 7:14

Transform the: Heart, Home, World

We are excited to launch a new mission and vision, here at First Friends, that emphasizes the unique partnership we have as the church with families in Building mature followers of Jesus through the Church and home! God designed faith to be imparted first through the family and then to the world. As sin and brokenness continue to impact our homes, our community, and the world, we believe this is the time for a new vision of what God can do in all of us.

Join us through October 30th to hear how we believe God is calling us all to be transformed by the Spirit of God, and how this will impact generations to come! Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord: Psalm 102:18
