Phase II COMPLETE!
In January 2019 our entire congregation began learning about GENERATIONS, our plan for new spaces for our Children and Music Ministry areas. Families prayed, pledges were made, and on March 8, 2020, we learned $8,313,121 had been pledged towards the GENERATIONS Building and Renovation Project. To say it was an exciting day for all of us would be an understatement. Covid had recently made its presence known but it didn't stop our progress. On May 27, 2021, despite the rain, we were not deterred and our church family watched online as Travis and friends ceremoniously dug their shovels into the pavement!
Through the months you've seen the video and photographic progress. We moved into the Children's space earlier this year and now our Music Ministries suite is complete. You've welcomed new faces and learned stories of church members on our blog.
To celebrate the completion of these new spaces with you, we are hosting a GENERATIONS Open House on January 23 with guided tours, snacks and an opportunity for you to add a tile to a new mosaic we'll add to our campus.
Tours begin at 8:30am. We hope you will join us to see how your support of GENERATIONS has made a difference on our campus. You won't want to miss this opportunity.
Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come. Psalm 71:18
Watch our recorded live ground breaking event from May 27, 2020. It was an interactive event for the whole family!
A Word From Your Pastor
When all is said and done, I will look back on the invitation to be your pastor as one of the greatest joys of my life. One of the things I love about our church family is that it is one of multiple generations. Our theme for this capital campaign—GENERATIONS—celebrates that. This is an opportunity for us to link arms across generations, to close the proverbial generation gap, and do something together to make an impact on generations yet to be born.
A total of $8,313,121 has been pledged for the GENERATIONS project. Watch the grand reveal from First Fellowship and our Sanctuary Worship.
A Word From the Harbargers
This church is home for us. It’s been home to my family, my parents, and my mom’s parents. While I grew up in First Baptist, Amy did not. We moved to Huntsville from Birmingham after we married, and attended church here, but had planned to visit other churches too. Amy’s father died a few months after we’d been visiting, and FBC rallied around us. Six months later, we had our first son, and the rest is history. This church loved us through cradle roll, hand-sewn baby blankets, young adult Sunday school teachers, and home-cooked meals.
Ways You Can Give
For our church to reach its financial goal, we will need commitments in varying amounts. Please consider your commitment in proportion to your resources. These commitments are for 3 years, over and above your current giving.
