Beginning 05/10/2020, we will be holding socially-distanced worship services at 10am.  Per order of the Governor of Alabama, all attending families must sit at least 6' from each other.  Furthermore, our building capacity will be limited to 200 persons, which is less than 50% of our normal capacity of 570.  As soon as the COVID-19 danger has passed, our plan is to resume normal worship services as quickly as possible.  Please watch this banner, as well as our FaceBook page, for more information as it develops.  To reach us directly, please email or phone us and one of the elders or deacons will get back with you as quickly as possible (contact information is below).

First Church "Heating System"

heaterBut when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. (Matthew 6:6)

valveFirst of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

Once, while on a tour of the London Metropolitan Tabernacle, the church of Charles Spurgeon, a man offered to show two visitors the "heating plant" for the church. Even though this was an odd offer on a hot July Sunday, they accepted. In a basement room, they saw seven hundred people praying, asking for God to bless the worship service to be held above in the sanctuary, using it to convert and grow sinners in Christ. The man then introduced himself as the pastor, Charles Spurgeon, and explained that any success from his preaching was because God was honoring the prayers of the church's "heating plant." We're looking to build a "heating plant" here. Would you pray about joining us for prayer?  If you can't join us in person, we would very much appreciate adding us to your prayer list.  If you would like more information, or to be connected with someone in one of our prayer groups, please contact the church office.  God will surely honor your prayers and your desires on our behalf.
