Missions Month Highlights

    01.26.20 | Faces of First Pres

    Our mission month for 2020 began on February 16th and was supposed to continue through March 21st. The coronavirus required us to change our plans.  The theme was “From neighborhoods to the nations: Going into all the world!” (Mark 16:15)

    Here are some of the highlights of the month:

    On February 16, Shadi Fatehi spoke at all of our services.  She represents PARS Theological Centre, whose mission is to equip and mobilize the Iranian church by training new leaders to transform the Persian speaking world for the glory of God.  It was a very impactful message.  There was also a separate mission offering taken that morning.

    On February 26, at the Ash Wednesday service, David Hancock, the pastor of our church plant in Port St. Lucie, gave the message.  Chris Tress, Pastor of Bowdown Church in West Palm Beach and president of Urban Youth Impact, gave an inspirational message at all of the services.   

    Unfortunately, the highly anticipated Mission Fair and pancake breakfast and the visit from our church planter from Greece, Alex Piplios, had to be cancelled.
