Congratulations on Election Victory

Dear Mayor White,

On behalf of the staff and congregation of First Christian Church, I want to congratulate you and wish you all the best on your recent election victory.

We are living in tumultuous times, and it takes great courage and sacrifice to be willing to step forward and lead as we navigate these rough waters.  Our prayer for you as a congregation is that you can not only lead by example but also surround yourself with those who would give wise counsel.

Dear Friends and Family of FCC,

Sunday, September 15th is our annual church Homecoming Service and on behalf of the entire pastoral staff, I would like to invite you to join us.

We celebrate Homecoming each year, taking the time to look back over the blessings of the past year and forward into the future with anticipation for what the Lord is going to do in the year to come.  It is also a time for those who have been a part of our church body in the past to “come home” and join us to celebrate their time as a part of our congregation.  Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear Michael,

On behalf of the congregation of FCC, I want to congratulate you on 20 years of service to the church as a member of the Church Board.

As a body, we have been blessed with your wisdom and dedication to the church, serving faithfully and always reaching above and beyond what is asked of you to help further the message of the Gospel.  You have been instrumental in helping the church to remain good and faithful stewards of the money that has been entrusted to us, as well as helping to appoint and send missionaries who have taken the message of the Gospel around the world.

Dear Senator Rogers,

Please accept my congratulations on your recent election victory.

You have accepted a position of leadership in a very tumultuous time.  As Christians, we are called to be “salt and light” to the world around us, and I want to encourage you to take this mandate seriously as you make decisions that will affect not only how we live today, but how our children inherit the world that we are to leave them.

Back to Church Invitation

Dear Church,

Next Sunday, September 17th, is our annual “Back to Church Sunday”. Summer is winding down, the kids are heading back to school and we are kicking off our Fall season with a special service and time of fellowship.

After a time away, such as many of us have had this summer, it is good to come back together and remember who we are and what we believe.

We are united under the Gospel of Jesus Christ as one body. We have common beliefs, purposes and goals, and spending time together strengthens our bonds, drawing us closer together and helping each of us to sharpen our faith “…as iron sharpens iron.” (Proverbs 27:17 NIV) Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Dear Teachers,

Another school year has begun, and I want to take the time to encourage you as you begin again in the classroom.

As their teacher, you have the unique privilege of being the hands and feet of Jesus to your students… and for some, you may be the first person who has ever done so. Your students will come to you from all walks of life, and I want to encourage you to take the time to get to know them and to get to know their stories.
