The Mission of God: Personal Faith, Public Witness

Begins August 2, 10:45 am

Taught by Dr. Gregg Okesson & Dr. Chris Kiesling

An 8-week class on the holistic Christian life: from the personal dimensions of Christian faith to the public spheres of Christian witness. This will be a great class for developing a solid foundation for living into the fullness of the Spirit-filled life for the glory of God!

Middle School Ministry

We are in need of 3 men to mentor and lead young boys as a small group leader. Contact Tanner Fouts at tannerf@faclex.com if you are interested.

You Know You Want To

…hold those adorable babies with us! We’re still in need of some folks to minister in our infant room once a month. Besides the joy you get from being with the babies, you’re assuring that young families can attend worship focused and uninterrupted. Fill out a Connection Card and join us!

Ministry Fair

Take the plunge! Whether you are looking for a way to get your feet wet and volunteer or dive into a community, there are lots of ways to get involved at First Alliance. Check out the Ministry Fair to talk with ministry leaders and sign up to take the plunge.

High School Ministry

High School Fundraiser
The High School Ministry is selling discount cards this year to bring down the cost of retreats. The cards are $20 and we receive 50% of that as profit!
FACyo Parents’ Meeting

Sunday, August 21, following 2nd service, Gym

We will have our annual Sr. High “Year in Preview”. This is the MOST IMPORTANT meeting of the year to stay in the know for 2016-17! The main course will be provided, please bring a side or dessert to share. We look forward to seeing you there!
Serve Through a Meal
The high school ministry is looking for people to provide meals this Fall on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm for 35-40 people. This is a great time of building relationships as we share a meal together.
If you are interested, please contact Dan McPherson at danm@faclex.com or (859)361-8390.

Back To School

One of our local schools, Booker T. Washington Academy, is in need of our help with class room supplies. Items needed are Kleenex, dry erase markers, index cards, sandwich and gallon size baggies, pencils and Clorox wipes. Items can be dropped off August 14 and 21 in the container under the big stairs in the Lower Atrium near the elevator and Church Office.

Thank You!

Thank you for participating in our Assurance for Life Baby Bottle Blessings this spring! We praise God for the success of our giving which to date totals approximately $1,500! Remember that full, partially full, and even empty bottles have value as they are able to be re-used in next year’s campaign. You may leave “late” bottles at Guest Services.

Getting to Know You

Sunday, August 21, after 1st and 2nd service
