‘Woodlawn’ movie will be screened on July 23-24
FIRST CHRISTIAN CHUCH
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible. Most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
In 2 Peter 1:5-11, the apostle Peter lays out specific attributes that should govern a Christian’s character. He instructs Christians to diligently pursue virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love. These are added to faith in Jesus Christ, who is the foundation of the Christian faith.
Scripture of the Week
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil by rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NIV).”
Saturday and Sunday services have the same message given by Pastor Bruce Humes. Sunday is a traditional service, with hymnal music provided by Pat Kogok at the piano. This Sunday will feature special music from Lita Fernandez and Terri Humphrey. Sunday service is from 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Saturday services are more contemporary, with Gregory Black leading worship with guitar accompaniment. Saturday service time is 9:30-10:45 a.m.
The Friday evening prayer meeting is from 6-7.
Thursday morning Bible study will resume July 29 from 11 a.m.-noon.
This month’s movie screening will be “Woodlawn,” a true story of Miami Dolphins superstar running back Tony Nathan. Tony attended Woodlawn H.S. in Alabama. In 1973, the school was desegregated, and racial tensions ran high. Under volatile conditions, Coach Tandy Geralds called in traveling sports chaplain Hank Erwin as a motivational speaker. The rest is history as God intervenes.
