BLOOD DRIVE

Someone needs blood every 2 seconds. Blood donations impact lives in many awesome ways, through trauma patients in the ER, organ transplant surgeries, cancer treatment, lifesaving transfusions, and ground-breaking research. To help in that effort, Vitalant will be conducting a blood drive at First Christian. Please register in advance online at blood4life.org. Click on locate a blood drive, enter the date of August 2, and the location as Santa Maria. You can also complete your Fast Track Health History online before Sunday morning. Give blood and help to save a life!

 
 
 
 

VBS 2020: FAITH, HOPE, & LOVE

Morning 9–10am | Evening 6–7pm | Online Only

Join us for our first ever Drive-In VBS! Families with children of ALL ages are invited to attend our three-day program with three participation options: morning, evening, or online-only. Your child will learn about Jesus’ plan for their lives and of His plan for the World. Crafts and lesson supplies can be picked up the week prior. Games, drama, and lessons will all take place on a stage, which can be viewed from the parking lot. Parents are required to stay with their children, and social distancing will be necessary.

We look forward to ministering to your families this year, even if things are different!
