Layity Sunday Celebration

Who inspired you as a young person to follow Jesus Christ in a life of service and commitment to the people of God and the congregation here at First Christian Church of Decatur? Lay leaders inspire, equip and challenge us all to be the people God called us to be. Faithful leadership comes in many forms, such as leading a Bible study, servicing as a deacon or elder, singing in the choir or bells, chairing a ministry, visiting the home bound, cooking a meal for volunteers for the Christmas tree sale or many other types of service.
Sunday, February 5, 2017, during 10:30 am worship we will be honoring five such people who have lead our congregation in service and support through their faithful participation in the ministries of this church. We want to say thank you to them. Please join us in celebrating theses lay leaders.
A reception will follow worship in the fellowship hall.
