Midtown Sacramento 21st & J

Spiritual Development Team

The Spiritual Development Team has continued to meet once a month during this difficult time in our community.  We work on ways to provide our church family and friends opportunities to focus on actively follow in the footsteps of Jesus. 

Our current projects for August 2020 are:

1. Care Card Notes – We are sending cards to people for whom we have no e-mail address on file at the church.  The purpose of this project is to reach out to let folks know we love and care for them even though we are not gathering as a church family at the church.  We are enclosing information about ways First Church is reaching out online.  Mostly we want to connect with people and let them know they are not forgotten and that we hope and pray that they are well.

The cards have the church logo on the front and are blank on the inside.  Volunteers from the Spiritual Development team and other church members have written notes in the cards which were sent out the first part of July.

A new round of cards will be sent out in August.  If you are interested in helping with this project, please contact…

2. Pathways to Faith – The Pathways to Faith class that gathered on Sunday Morning continues using content and discussion questions delivered to the participants via email.  To reach more people and to foster discussion we are planning to offer the same content on a private group Facebook page.  “The Pathways to Faith – Love First” Facebook page will have a link on the church website or in the weekly newsletter that can be used to join the group.   The Facebook page will be open to receive new group members on August 6th.

3. Book Club – Pastor Rod and Deana Dean are leading a church Book Club using the book “The Hate You Give”.   The Book Club meets online Sunday Evening at 6:30 pm.  To sign up email:

4. Hebrews Bible Study – Rev. Carl Thomas will lead an online Bible Study on the Book of Hebrews.  The study will begin September.  Details about the class and how to sign up will be available in a few weeks.
