This Sunday we will continue our series, “Living our Call.” Sunday we will talk about having faith. I think to talk about having faith means we really need to talk about trust. Trust in what we cannot yet see. Dr. King used to say that, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” As a church and as people of faith we are called to have faith. Sometimes that is easier said than done. On Sunday morning I’ll be sharing one of the calling stories of the disciples. I think within this story is a lesson on faith for us all. I can’t wait to share it with you!
I wanted to extend an invitation to anyone interested in the 4-week Sunday School class called, Disciples 101 that I will be leading. Class will begin on Sunday, October 22nd at 9am and end on November 12th. Anyone is welcome to come, but this class is geared toward folks who are new or “new-ish” to First Christian Church. This is a chance for you to ask your questions about FCC. Maybe you want to learn more about baptism? Or want to learn more about the history and values of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)? Maybe you are wondering where the gymnasium is located? THIS is the class for you! We will meet in the Chapel (near the Church offices) at 9. For planning purposes, I’d love to know if you are coming so drop me an email: email@example.com
Glad to be in ministry with you! Peace, Kara
