Fall Worship in the Christian Life Center Time Change

As we step into the fall season next month, we are excited to share some updates regarding worship times and our Children and Family Ministries program at our Birmingham First campus. Please note that the new programs and worship times begin on Kick-off Sunday, September 8, 2019.

First, our Sunday morning worship times at Birmingham First will be as follows:
  • Worship in the Sanctuary will begin at 8:15, 9:30, and 11:00 a.m. Pastor Elbert invites you to join him for a worship experience that is more traditional in style.
  • Worship in the Christian Life Center will begin at 9:30 a.m. Pastor Lindsey invites you to join her at this new service time for worship in a more contemporary style.
Second, our children, youth, and family ministries teams are excited to share the following information as well:
  • Sunday School is offered at 9:30 a.m. for children and youth from three years old through 12th grade.
  • Nursery Care is now available for newborns to four year olds beginning at 8:00 a.m. through ALL of our Sunday morning worship services.
You may remember that our first FORWARD strategic initiative calls us to prioritize “Growing in Relationship with God through Discipling Ministries. One of our core values is to “encourage lifelong spiritual growth. With worship in the Christian Life Center at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, we are able to provide the strongest Sunday School program at 9:30 for more children and youth. With expanded nursery hours, we are able to meet the needs of more families with smaller children, as well.

As always, children are welcome in all of our worship services. You may find children’s activities packets just outside of the main sanctuary to take with you in worship as together we engage in the worship experience.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us. We hope you will share this exciting news with your friends and neighbors as we step into the fall and continue to “gather, nurture and equip disciples of Jesus Christ for ministry and mission in the world.”
