On July 28, our congregation voted to call Dr. Barry Foster to be our Senior Pastor. Thank you for your participation in all of the meetings. We are excited for what God is going to do in the future. Please continue to pray for our church and Pastor Barry, and ask the Lord what He wants you to do as we go forward.
A Note from Pastor Barry…
Dear First Christian Church Family,
I am deeply humbled and sincerely honored that you have invited me to serve as your pastor. It has been a surprising joy for me to be the interim pastor these past seven months. Surprising, because I was neither seeking nor expecting to be asked to pastor a church in this season of my life. But a joy, as I’ve watched God begin a tremendous healing project for a church he deeply loves; that he has allowed me to be a part of the healing process has been a marvelous encouragement of my own faith. Your receptivity to my teaching and leadership, the love you have shown Mary and me, and the support you have given to us and to one another has been a tremendous sign that the Holy Spirit has indeed brought us to this place for this season.
Thank you for investing your trust in me, for continuing to believe that Jesus wants to build this church, and for choosing to be a part of what God is doing in this place. Your continued support and personal involvement in the life and ministry of FCC will be crucial for our corporate spiritual health and fruitfulness. Mary and I are looking forward to walking with Jesus together with you into the new mercies he has for us each day, as together we seek to see his kingdom realized in greater ways in and among and through us.
Because of Jesus, for the sake of his kingdom and this congregation of the people of God,
