For 10 years, First Christian Church has participated in ministry at Ivy Knoll. Prior to COVID, we had more than 20 regular worship attendees at the weekly worship service and 7 volunteers, plus me. Ivy Knoll has asked us to return to offering weekly worship services for their residents. Some of our previous volunteers are not able to participate or cannot serve every week.
We need volunteers to save this ministry. If you’re interested in helping out once a week or once a month, please let me, or Brenda and Sterling Staggs by July 9th. We need to let Ivy Knoll know whether or not we can continue this ministry.
First a BIG thank you from the people who live at Panorama for the supply of food given by First Christian Church, Covington, and Panera over the past year. This mission was started during the Pandemic last year by Sue and Steve Rehfuss.
The pantry is in need of food* for this upcoming week. If you have food you would like to donate you can drop off the food at the church in the pantry room. If you are not sure of the location please call Sue Steve. If you wish to donate and cannot make it to church please call the Rehfuss’ by Wednesday of next week (July 7).
*Please donate food that is simple to prepare. Cans with pop open tops if possible.

“The concert held in the Fellowship Hall was a great success. Special thanks are due to the minister’s daughter, who labored the whole evening at the piano, which as usual fell upon her.”
“It’s Drug Awareness Week: Get involved in drugs before your children do.”
