Wednesday's at First feel a bit different. A new chapter of Busniess Network International has moved its weekly meeting to First. They outgrew Coffee Emporium. YPCC outgrew Below Zero Lounge in OTR and has landed at First too. Both are great organizations. If interested in OTR BNI google them on the web or checkout their FB page. They meet 11:30-1:00.
The First Saturday of each month we gather at First and then head out into the neighborhood to serve our neighbors. A signup Genius is posted on our FB page, but it isn't necessary to sign up. Just show up and help us Share the Love of God!

The 500th anniversary of the Reformation is giving us an opportunity to commemorate the event in some exciting ways. Sunday, October 15, 4:00, there will be Reformation Festival Choral event at First. The concert is being directed by Henry Benefield, who is known for his work leading the 100 man African American men choir in Cincinnati. Mr Benefield brought his music, and a wondrous level of energy, to one of our worship services last June. This is an event not to be missed. A perfect opportunity to invite a friend.
