The Message is Hope

First Alliance Church


Happy New Year First Alliance Family!

As a staff, we are feeling a sense of excitement and anticipation as we enter 2019. We believe that God has great things in store for us in this new year, and we want to listen to him and follow him courageously together!

If you get a chance to stop by the office you might see a few new faces. Maria Darby has joined the team as our new receptionist.  Maria also serves as a small group leader in the Middle School Ministry and is the mom to two sweet daughters, Charlotte and Gwen. Hannah Meredith is on staff assisting Tim Davis as our Nursery/Preschool Coordinator. Hannah is a recent graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in elementary education and has an amazing heart for kids. Heather Smith is our new Director of Communications and Connections. Heather has a degree in Broadcast Communications and extensive experience in ministry coaching and leadership. Much of Heather’s work will occur behind the scenes as we design and develop improvements in how we communicate and help you get plugged into ministry at First Alliance – but on Sunday mornings her main role is as the wife of our Lead Pastor!

Speaking of Sunday mornings, this Sunday we are launching our Deep and Wide series. This series is not only a sermon series – it is a call to listen, wrestle, apply, and pray! If you have not already done so, would you take the time to watch the attached 8 minute video blog that Pastor Paul recorded? (If you are thinking this video blog edition looks familiar, it is the same edition we sent in December. However, we realize that due to the busy holiday season, many did not have the extra time to watch it… and it is an important one!) . This video will explain the series, the format, and schedule to help you get the most out of it!


I look forward to journeying with you in the weeks ahead as together we go Deep and Wide!

Deb MacKay

Executive Pastor
