Committed to Christ All-Church Study & Sermon Series
Beginning the week of August 20 through the entire month of September, Noblesville First will embark on a six-week journey of discipleship. Following the Committed to Christ program developed by Bob Crossman, we will be encouraging our entire congregation to explore the six steps that lead to a growing vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ.
Through Sunday morning worship and individual or group study, we will examine six elements to this spiritual journey which include:
Most small group, Bible Study and Growth Groups will be utilizing the Committed to Christ study book which we find to be easy-to-read but offers valuable insights for both the beginning and life-long follower of Christ.
We're excited about having the entire congregation studying the same resources together and celebrating the spiritual growth that takes place when we become intentional in our efforts to grow in Christ.
If you are not part of a group, you will find the easy-to-follow book excellent for your individual study. We will also offer some six-week groups for this endeavor. If you would like to be a part of one of these short-term groups contact Pastor Aaron Hobbs moc.t1534851899srife1534851899llivs1534851899elbon1534851899@sbbo1534851899ha1534851899 or call the church office at 317-773-2500.
Beginning with worship on August 26, our theme for each Sunday’s worship will follow the topic we have studied that week. A commitment card will be shared at the end of each worship which offers several response options for wherever you may be in your faith journey. The study book is in the hands of most of our group leaders so you are invited to ask them about the study.
We will be taking book orders after church on Sunday, August 5 & 12 or you can put in your order now by calling the church office at 317-773-2500 or emailing Jenell Hadley at moc.t1534851899srife1534851899llivs1534851899elbon1534851899@yeld1534851899ahj1534851899. May God richly bless you and our congregation as we seek to become more committed to Christ.
Your servant in Christ,
Rev. Jerry Rairdon

Throughout history, the church has been a cradle of song. It only seems appropriate that the church would fold music into the life of faith, since both deal with the spiritual dimensions of life. Music in worship is as old as worship itself, and these two pieces of our history—faith and song—continue to hold a place of deep value for us today.
When we sing together, our divisions fade away, and we are united by the common dimensions of our humanity, our faith, and our longing to connect with God.
The Chancel Choir at Noblesville First leads the congregation in singing and enhances worship with moments of beauty. Anyone who enjoys singing and is high school age or above is invited to be a part of Chancel Choir.

Financial Peace University, from financial expert and author Dave Ramsey, teaches participants how to manage their finances, live debt-free and so much more!
God provides for us so that we can live and give like no one else. The classes help us understand that 100% of the money we have is from God and belongs to God. We learn to understand that we are simply managers of His money. It is not about us giving God a percentage of our income, but about God giving us a percentage to manage our daily lives.
The group will meet for nine weeks on Sundays 6:30-8:30pm beginning August 12.
FREE childcare is available! Just let us know in advance.

Prayer is an important part of our faith journey with God. It is the way we communicate with Him and He with us. God is always ready to listen and answer our pleas. How often do you raise your voice to Him? How much time have you taken in the past week to offer prayers for our church, our pastors, programs and missions?
All are invited for the Weekly Prayer Gathering, 11:15-noon in the Prayer Room to join in prayer for our community, the church and the world.
The group prays for specific ministries, personal prayer requests, prayer requests from our Action Cards, and offers a time for prayers of thanksgiving and praise. Each gathering will end in a time of community prayer.
Do you have 45 minutes to join with us in quieting our hearts and minds to focus on praying for our church and its ministries and listening to God’s answers? Great and wonderful things can happen when people join in prayer.
