News & Announcements


August 20 is LOGOS Day at First Church as we gear up for the Sept. 13 launch of our 17th year as a LOGOS church.  Toward the end of worship that Sunday, we will have a brief Taste of LOGOS presentation by the leaders and children before going into Fellowship and Refreshments and the rest of our day.  For parents of children and youth attending LOGOS this year, there will be a parents’ meeting at 12 noon in Westminster Hall, with lunch and childcare provided.  Parents should RSVP to Bonnie Ratcliff (, 706-936-0327) or Jill Esry (, 816-833-1416) so they can plan food and childcare.  Join us as we get into the spirit of this intergenerational, all-church ministry program!

Choir & Praise Team Workshops – Have you ever been interested in joining the Bell or Chancel Choir?  Come join us for our Choir Workshop on August 26!  We will sing from 9:00 a.m. until noon before having a noon meal together to kick off the new season! Have gifts beyond singing? Perhaps it’s a musical instrument? We would love to get you involved in our music ministry! Hope to see you there!

Family Movie Night on August 26th at 5:00 pm.  We will start with a light dinner and then watch 101 Dalmatians, the Disney animated version.  You don’t want to miss it, so come get your spots on!  To help make sure we have enough food, please sign up on the credenza.

Now is the time to signup to work the parking lots during Santa-Cali-Gon Days in September.
