What’s Happening

VBS 2017 is June 5-9

Mark your calendars!  This year at NK Community VBS our kids will be Galactic Starveyors! As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders – that the God who created everything there is – the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible – wants a personal relationship with them!

First Church Mission Trip to Kusel, Germany – September 9-17

First Church Mission/Work Trip to Kusel, Germany – September 9-17

Recently, Kathy & Doug McClain and Pastor Michael Landoll with the 3C Project in Kusel, Germany contacted First Church and shared their need for another work group this fall. The details regarding the exact nature of the work are yet to be determined, but they will make them known as soon as possible. Tentative dates are September 9-17, 2017. We will fly from Ohio to Frankfurt, Germany. While in Germany, all food, lodging, and transportation will be provided by the host church. We will only need to cover the cost of airfare (currently between $800-900 round trip), fees associated with obtaining a passport, and personal spending money. We are hoping to form a group of about 6-10 people.

The 3C Project is constructing a building in Kusel, Germany that will house in depth training for the local church, a summer camp ministry, and a missions training center. The 3C Project hopes to encourage churches and missionaries struggling against the post-modern mindset found in Germany.

This is a great opportunity for our church to continue to build upon a relationship that began last year. There is a very real need in Germany. Much of the Western World now lives in a post-Christian society. The values, morals, and truth of Scripture is no longer accepted as the norm. We are even beginning to see this trend in our own country. The 3C Project is attempting to push back against the postmodern mindset and equip Christian leaders with the resources they need to spread the Gospel effectively.

If you are interested in going on this trip, or want more information, please contact Connie Schroer at connie.schroer@nktelco.net in the church office.  As far as airfare is concerned, the sooner we can form the group the better.

Don’t hesitate to call First Church at 419-753-2446 and find out more about this exciting mission opportunity!


Sonrise Service

We are so excited for our youth led Sonrise Service this year! It will be centered on the Parable of the Sower and the Seed. Our students will be putting a modern twist on the parable and helping us examine our hearts. We hope you’ll join us at our interactive Sonrise Service at 7am in the Ministry Center on Easter Sunday.
