“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.

Steve Ellison: Christian Citizenship

Even without television in my home, I have not been able to escape the shroud of evil that we have cast over the current election.  Sadly, it seems that we could not have come up with two more unqualified candidates for POTUS if we had sat down and plotted a course with that as our end goal.  However, it seems to me that this fact is not our biggest problem concerning ...

Roy Exum: What Southerners Sing

Barry Norris plays the organ at Birmingham’s East Lake United Methodist Church and two days ago the church hosted what we used to call “A Singing on the Grounds.” Today it is called a “Hymnfest” and, believe it or not, it is has to be just as fun today as it was 100 years ago when our forefathers tied their horse and wagon to a tree.
