A Closer Look

Staff Gift: Our church is blessed and well served by a wonderful staff!  As is our custom, we take time at Christmas to collect additional funds to bestow upon the staff as a holiday bonus.  Staff gifts should be made by Today. You may designate your check or cash for the staff gift and forward it to the church office or it can be made through the church website.
 
Cold Weather Gear: We would like to remind you that we are still collecting cold weather items. In December we will be collecting new or gently used sleeping bags. In January we will be collecting new or gently used coats.

MUD: If you are in High School you are invited to join us for our High School retreat January 15th–17th. Early registration is due today, $100. And $110 after today.  Please pray for our High School Students that they will  continue to grow their relationship with God as well as their peers that will be on the trip. 

Welcome to the Freak Show: Save the date of March 6th for the next all church talent show.  This is a great night to be together as a church family.  Sign ups to perform will take place in February so start thinking about a talent to share.

Mission to Mexico 2016: Our next Mission to Mexico is July 31st-August 6th 2016.  Information and application packets are available in the lobby under the TV.  If you have any questions contact Erik Cave.

Electronic Giving: We want to make sure you are aware of our electronic giving program as a way to automate your regular offering. Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation. Enrollment is easy via either completion of an authorization form returned to the church office or via our website firstcov.com where you can directly set up one-time donations or schedule regular automatic donations.

 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. 
Malachi 3:10 NIV
