This Week’s Connector – July 31, 2020
We will be joining together for worship from home only this Sunday, August 2nd. Join the livestream at 8:30, 10:00, or 11:30 on faclex.tv. You can visit our website and click on the faclex.tv button, or you can type faclex.tv into your browser and go!
If you aren’t able to watch a service live, visit the Weekly Services section of our website to watch anytime after 1pm on Sunday.
We will be led in communion this Sunday during our online service. All are welcome to pick up pre-packaged elements on the front porch of the church!
Men’s Bible Studies
Men, it’s time for our next round of virtual study groups. We may not be able to meet with each other in our preferred way, but we can still stay in touch and encourage each other through virtual gatherings.
We are offering two book studies:
The Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer
This study will be offered on Tuesday mornings at 6:30am and Tuesday nights at 8pm beginning August 4th. There is a free download of this online.
The Prodigal God by Tim Keller
This study will be offered Monday and Wednesday nights at 8pm beginning August 3rd and 5th.
Please let us know which study and day/time you prefer by completing a brief survey and we will find a group for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Serve with Next Gen Ministries
We are so excited to reopen our Next Gen (birth through high school) spaces on August 16th!
While we need volunteers in ALL age groups, our biggest needs are for preschool teachers and middle school small group leaders. Please take some time to prayerfully consider serving with the kids and students of FAC. Whether teaching preschoolers gets you excited or discipling high school boys is more your speed, we need you!
Cleaning Team Needs
We are grateful for the many people who have joined our teams in helping to reopen and regather. We are in need of more people to serve on our cleaning teams! If you would be willing to join the team on Sunday mornings during and after services go to our website and let us know! We will be in touch with you to find the Sundays and service time that works best for you!
Sound and Computer Help Needed
If you are interested in serving on our Sunday morning tech team, we would love to have you! We are in need of volunteers to serve on the sound team and the computer team running the slides for Sunday morning worship. If you are skilled in either of these areas (or are willing to learn!) contact Pastor Zeke.
Church Center App
Make sure you download the Church Center app on your phone for easy access to registrations, events, and giving. Go here to download the app for your iPhone or here for your Android device. Once you’ve downloaded it, just open it up and search for First Alliance Church. Taking the time to download this app will save you a lot of time in the future!
Prayer Night is coming up Monday, August 10th! It will be held in-person in the FAC sanctuary from 6:45–7:45pm. There is no need to register if you plan to come.
We will be using the same safety standards as we do on Sunday morning for our services:
- The Atrium will be closed for visiting and any conversations will need to happen in the parking lot.
- The seating will be set like Sunday morning (socially distanced) and we ask that you sit with members of your household only.
- Masks are mandatory. There will be hygiene stations with handsanitizer and masks for you if you need one.
- We will not be livestreaming this event, as attendees praying from their seats would not be audible for those at home. If you are unable to join us in person, please take some time to pray from home!
Please note Prayer Night will be the second Monday of the month this month only.
Women’s Ministry – A Night of Worship and Celebration
We are postponing our night of praise and worship. Keep a lookout for a rescheduled date!
Register for Services
Thank you for continuing to register for our Sunday services in this unique season! Registration will open every Sunday for the upcoming Sunday on our website.
We have a playlist of our Sunday worship songs available on Spotify so you can teach your kids the songs in advance of our Sunday services. Be sure to check it out and be encouraged!
