Our first line of defense and the most powerful thing we can do is pray! So, we are challenging you to join us in an event we are calling: “Park and Pray”. We want to cover Thomas Hospital in prayer beginning Monday, March 30. Here’s how:
Decide on a time between 6AM & 12AM.
Head to the parking lot of Thomas Hospital and park. Don’t get out.
Turn flashers on.
Park there and pray.
For 30 minutes, pray about what goes on inside the walls of the hospital. Pray for the doctors, nurses, support personnel, patients, family members of the sick.
When done snap a selfie of you &/or your carload. Upload it to our church facebook page with the comment “we parked and prayed”.

Extending Help

Text “covidhelp” to the number 251.244.9887 if you have a need we can assist you with or if you want volunteer to meet needs in our
church and community.
If you’d like to make a financial gift to meet those needs, you can go to the giving page on our websitewhere, in addition to  giving your tithe, you can select the “Coronavirus Relief Fund” from the giving options.

Everyone's at Home...

. Let’s Make a Directory!  Since the pandemic has everyone at home, there’s no better time to get a pic of the whole family than now! Enter…. the “Selfie Church Directory”! The idea is to gather your family for a photo and send it to the church for placement in our church management system, Realm. Here’s the plan:
1. Gather the ducks (the fam)
2. We need the pic in portrait (not landscape) position. (IMPORTANT!)
3. Shoot the fam (pun intended)
4. EMAIL the pic to spippin@firstfairhope.org Please…in the SUBJECT LINE of email put: directory pic-FamilyName This will help us sort out who’s who.
5. For those that can’t make this happen, we can send a “drive by snapper”. (not sniper!…ha!) So email spippin@firstfairhope.org or call the church office so we can set up a time. It is NOT a photo shoot, just a drive by, you’d be outside, and some members of our media team would snap the pic. Once it’s all done, we’ll tell you the ways you can get to it.

What on Earth Am I Here For?

What on Earth am I Here For? In this six-session small group Bible study, Rick Warren helps users discover the answer to life’s most fundamental question. And here’s a clue to the answer: "It’s not about you; You were created by God and for God." Until you understand that, life will never make sense. You will have the opportunity to discuss the implications and applications of living the life God created you to live. Angie Lewis will be the facilitator. Begins Wednesday, March 11, 6:00pm - 7:30pm in room S205. Sign up by clicking anywhere in this box.
