Fresh Starts

The next several weeks are a busy time at First Alliance as our children’s, middle school, and youth ministries kick off the new school year; as new Sunday Bible Study classes begin; and as Life Groups form. In the midst of this we are celebrating our passion for God’s mission in the world with a 4-day Missions Fest. Join us for all or some of the events described below. Above all, please pray for all of these fresh starts.
