Dear Faith Family,

As we head into a new year, we are so grateful for all the Lord has done in and through First Hewitt in 2022.  From the beginning of new ministries with Clayton Knight (Youth Minister) and Jordan Johnson (Worship Pastor) to the mobilization of our faith family in local and international missions.  From Kid’s Hope at Hewitt Elementary to Night of the Lights in neighborhoods and Caroling at Royal Manor.  God has been so faithful to lead us in new ways to reach those who are far from Christ.  We are excited about the opportunities that are ahead of us in 2023 and can’t wait to journey with you in knowing Christ and making Him known! 

This Sunday is New Year’s Day!  I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than by worshipping the Lord and seeking Him!  We will take some time during the service to pray specifically for the year ahead.  We hope you will join us for this special time of worship.  We will not have Sunday Morning Bible studies this week but will gather for Worship Only at 10:45 AM.  There will be preschool worship for our kiddos. 

Finally, I want to offer you two end-of-the-year gifts.  They come with no strings attached, but my prayer is that they will greatly encourage you in your walk with the Lord.  First, we want to provide you with a free 8-month subscription to Ramsey Plus.   Ramsey Plus is an online treasure chest full of some of the best financial resources available.  This includes free access to Financial Peace University and many other courses.  (It’s a $129 value!). Second, we want to provide you with a free subscription to RightNow Media.  RightNow Media is like Netflix for video-based Bible study! There are over 20,000 video-based Bible study videos available to watch for free!  I will put the links below to sign up for these resources! 

I’m praying Philippians 1:9-11 over you right this minute!  May the Lord bless you richly in 2023! 

You are loved!

Pastor Chris

IMPACT WEEKEND - January 13-15

It’s that time again for one of our students’ favorite events, IMPACT Weekend. This year’s theme is TOGETHER. In our culture today, there is more division than there is unity. In all the division, the Gospel speak a profound truth: In Christ, we are united. We are together. We want to teach the students to embrace a Christ-Centered Community. We will be partnering with a few other churches in the area to encourage unity and togetherness in Christ. Those churches are Brazos Meadows BC, FBC China Springs, and Columbus Avenue BC. 
To sign up your students, click HERE.
All Payments will go to Brazos Meadows. To pay for your student, click HERE. Choose Impact 2023 under FUNDS and list the students name(s) in the Memo.
