A Message from our Pastor

Over the last few weeks our church has been blessed by the musical talents of Dr. Mark Taylor.  Earlier this month I announced that he will be joining our staff in the role of Interim Blended Worship Pastor.  Mark brings a wealth of experience to our 9:30 a.m. Blended Service at our downtown campus.  He serves as the Professor of Conducting and the Robert L. Burton Chair of Conducting at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.  He has directed choirs that have sung with the New England Symphonic Ensemble and the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, to name just a couple.  His choral experience has twice taken him to the famed Carnegie Hall.  He also brings his heart for worship and people to our service.  I know those of you who attend our Blended Service downtown have already been blessed by his spirit as have our wonderful choir and orchestra.  I know you will continue to make both he and his wife, Leshia, welcome here as they help lead us in worship.

On another musical note I invite you to join us this coming Wednesday, April 18, as our Kids Praise presents their Spring Musical in our Worship Center.  This will be our final musical with Stasha Savage as our Kids Praise director as she and her family will be leaving just after school ends for the year to join Dean in Florida.  I want to say again how much we have all appreciated the contributions both Stasha and Dean have made to our worship here at First.  Their children, Nathan and Lillian, have pitched in to help at every turn.  Please join us for this great evening beginning at 6:30 in the Worship Center, Wednesday, April 18.

I look forward to seeing you Sunday as we continue our new series, Guard Rails.
