  • Empowered to Connect Conference

    Friday/Saturday, April 24/25, 9:00am-5:00pm

    Please join us for the Empowered To Connect Simulcast right here at Springfield First! Tickets are only $10 per person and include lunch both days.

    While the conference is designed for adoptive and fostering parents and caregivers, the information presented is beneficial to anyone who works with children, especially those who have been affected by childhood trauma. We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with the James Project in order to offer Empowered to Connect in Central Illinois. We hope to see you there. Because when we work together to help a child, we are strengthening our church, and our communities too!

  • Kids' Spring Musical

    Sunday, April 26

    Lunch 11:45am

    Show 12:30pm

    Sometimes when we think about our calling as followers of Jesus to “go and preach the gospel to all the world,” we wonder if that command is really for all of us. Some of us feel too young, or too old, or not eloquent with words. Others think it means we’d need to travel halfway across the world to share the love of Jesus, and that seems too daunting! Have you ever felt this way? Some of our kids have!

    Join us on Sunday, April 26, to watch the story of a group of students at their bus stop who come across their mission. They learn that spreading the message of God’s love may not be as hard as they thought, and that this is for all of us, should we choose to accept our mission. The kids’ musical, Mission: Possible, Sharing the Gospel…by our Love, will be April 26 at 12:30pm in the CLC. You are invited to join us for a spaghetti lunch right before the show at 11:45am in the CLC as well. We hope to see you there!
