“What Resurrection Does Today” is the title of Sunday’s message by Pastor Paul Rebelo on April 21, at 10:45 a.m. Sandy Reynolds will read Scripture from the Chapter of Luke 9:36-43. Assistive listening devices are available to worshipers with hearing loss during the service. Real-time captioning also is offered on many Sundays. Visitors are always welcome.

First Christian Church is a supporter of Brown Academy and volunteers are needed to help any Tuesday afternoon from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at the school. Help make a difference in the life of a child. We are calling on all members to bring bottled water for the children as they begin T-CAP testing on April 22. Drop off donations the in lobby.

Regularly-scheduled outreach events include meetings of Narcotics Anonymous on Mondays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; and Tai Chi on Fridays at 11 a.m. The next Wednesday Night Fellowship Dinner will be April 24 at 5:30 p.m., followed by relaxation and fellowship. Dinner is $5 and reservations are requested.

As a non-profit, the church is preparing to participate in the fifth annual Walk4Hearing on May 11 to help raise funds to make the fellowship hall hearing accessible and to replace older assistive device units currently used in the sanctuary. Join the FCC Chalice Champs and get a team T-shirt.

Bob Tamasy: I’m With Him

Being a journalist for most of my life has had its perks. Lucrative compensation wasn’t among them, unfortunately, but I did get to go to some interesting places.

He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Not A Blessed One

When I read, to no great surprise, that 132 of Chattanooga’s “leaders” had signed a letter in support of “socioeconomic integration” in Thursday’s Times Free Press, there were two things that were immediately obvious to me: Not a blessed one would have (a) written such a letter on their personal stationery, and (b) not a blessed one would have ever voted for the current president ...
