First Pres and ICCH communities unite for a Sunday of worship and fellowship on October 6, 2019

By September 25, 2019 No Comments

As you may or may not be aware, a Spanish speaking congregation called ICCH meets on the First Pres campus every Sunday for worship in the chapel. Our congregation has hosted and partnered with ICCH for over a decade and our deep support of their ministry is a great way for us to steward the resources and opportunity God has entrusted to this community.

On Sunday October 6, at 9:00 and 10:30, the First Pres and ICCH communities will unite for a Sunday of worship and fellowship. This will be a special day of joining our multi-cultural voices in worship, prayer and preaching as we live out a physical expression of what the Kingdom of God is designed to look like. Additionally, we will join in a time of shared community after the service as we sit together for a meal, a time of prayer for one another, translated conversation, and The Lord’s Supper in the gym from 11:50-1:00.

We need your help to make this day a success.

Here is how you can be a part of this special day:

  • Come. Whatever your plans may have been for October 6, make it a point to be a part of worship at 9 or 10:30 that morning.
  • Serve. Our two communities are assembling a joint team to host and serve the shared lunch in the gym.
  • Bake Bread. We’d like to have a loaf of home-made bread on every table for the communion event in the gym.
  • Translate. Are you a Spanish-speaker? We need your gifts on this day!
  • Sing. Sign up to be a part of the integrated choir on Sunday morning October 6. There will be a rehearsal in the sanctuary at 11:40 on Sunday, September 29.

You can let your willingness to participate in any of the above be known by sending a note to Cathy in the church office.
