Building a church Where Faith Comes Alive defines First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale. We love South Florida, especially our city and surrounding community. In this Christmas season, we want to envision what 2018 could be like, together.
We see people with different backgrounds, ethnicities, and languages united by the Gospel. Because we have experienced it in transformative ways, our faith has come alive.
Ultimately, it is people all over our community catalyzing change. This change multiplies the effects of the Gospel, starting here and spreading through the world. This is Where Faith Comes Alive. This is who First Presbyterian is.
As God continues to lead us beyond ourselves and onto His mission, this Christmas season, we want to step deeper into this calling. We’re stepping out in faith, trusting God for an impact beyond our walls, beyond this generation, beyond all that we can ask or even imagine! We want God’s very best for our city, our region, our church.
Our Very Best Christmas offering will provide:
• Ministry outreach to current and new children and families
• Food and support for the under resourced and under served of Broward
• Outreach opportunities for children and youth
• Additional resources for college students and young adults
• Mission experience opportunities for all ages
• Vacation Bible School for our community
In addition to funding the ongoing mission and ministry of First Presbyterian, our goal is to raise an additional $200,000 in this Christmas season. Not only to see our faith come alive, but to see our community come alive! We lean into God’s strength, and trust in His provision. It is entirely possible. The vision that God has given us is clear. The time is right. This is the time to give Our Very Best.
