The two day “Save Someone’s Life This Summer” community
blood drive was a success as 137 donors came forward to give their
“Gift of Life”. We collected 128 productive units and there were six
first time donors. I would like to thank Connie for her assistance and
Jay for being such a big help before, during and after the drive. Many members of
the congregation are regular donors and workers at each and every drive. It is a
blessing to be surrounded by so many caring and loving people. The use of the
church and fellowship hall is deeply appreciated. To the Disciple Women of First
Christian Church: on behalf of the donors, workers and Wichita Staff, I would like to
thank you for the delicious cookies you provided for the recent blood drive. You
gals really went out of your way to please and you are truly appreciated. We had so
many compliments on the wonderful assortment of cookies and everyone agreed
they were delicious. Thank you again for your time and talents in making the blood
drive a huge success!!
We believe that every person who confesses faith in Jesus Christ, whether he/she is a member of this congregation or not, is welcome to join us as we break bread at the Lord’s Table. Please take the bread and cup as they are passed, and use this time as an opportunity for prayer and reflection.
Children, Youth and Families!
Mark your calendar! Saturday, June 14th, will be our outing to Carousel Park in Joplin! Tickets are $5 per rider for most rides at the park. We will gather at the picnic area for fellowship and fun between rides! (Food will not be provided but is available for purchase at the park.)
Our June Project is Safe House in Pittsburg, KS. Safe House offers services for victims of family violence and sexual abuse/assault. Abuse is defined as “any unprivileged physical contact”. Verbal abuse is screaming, shouting threats, yelling obscenities or verbally attacking another person. Emotional abuse is constant feeling of fear, anxiety, or dread caused by the action or inaction of another person.
Since there are so many needs for the shelter, we will be taking monetary donations that can be used to where needed the most. Thank you for your generosity!
