Advisory Board To Meet Tuesday Night The Advisory Board (deacons, trustees, church officers, and program directors) will meet Tuesday night at 7:00. They will be working on a revision of the church budget for the coming year. See You At the Pole All middle school and high school students are encouraged to gather around the flag pole at their school this Wednesday morning at 7:00 pm as part of the national movement of student believers called “See You at the Pole.” Adults and younger children are encouraged to meet at the high school for a prayer gathering Tuesday evening at 6:30 to pray for our community, its schools, and our students. REACH Meets Again This Wednesday We have restarted our Wednesday night student ministry. Supper is served from 6:30-6:55 and worship and teaching begin at 7:00. We have groups for all ages including adults so we hope to see you there.
The New Life Drama Company will join us during the last week of Lunch Bunch (July 30-August 3) and will help with our first-ever Drama & Music Mini-Camp. Students in elementary, middle school, and high school may sign up for afternoon sessions with NLDC to prepare for a closing program on Friday evening, 7:00 in the auditorium. Application forms are available at Lunch Bunch or may be completed online here. This program is free to all participants. If you know students who may be interested in this program, please pass along this information. We also need adult volunteers to help in the afternoons during the mini-camp.
This verse is the basis for this year’s annual theme: “All Things New.” On December 31, 2017, our pastor began a series of sermons on this theme. Expect to see new things happening at our church in the near future. We already changed the name of our church. We no longer call ourselves “First Free Will Baptist Church of Johnston City.” Instead, we put Christ and our community first instead of ourselves, so just call us “Johnston City Free Will Baptist Church” or “JCity Church” for short.
In other changes, REACH (our Wednesday night discipleship ministry) has an updated format and we are working on a brand new church website. Expect to see more photos and videos on the web and Facebook. We are here to serve you and our community. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you.
Check out the JC Ministerial Alliance website for information about (and to sign up for) opportunities to minister to the homeless and seniors in our community. Look for “Chili, Socks, Gloves” and “Cottage Meeting, Food & Singing.”
