Local Congregation plans “Rally Around the Steeple” this Sunday
The congregation will proceed out onto the front lawn along Fifth Avenue to hear a message, literally from above, and invite their entire community of friends and neighbors to join them. The event is sponsored by the church’s Evangelism & Outreach team whose goal is to extend the message of the church into the community in various ways, including from 6 stories in the air through a bullhorn. They believe the ‘Rally Around the Steeple’ will be a fun and visible way of putting forth their mission of outreach.
First Congregational was the first church in the City of Huntington and they recently completed a full restoration of the sanctuary and steeple. This will be the first time in the 141 year history of the church that such a sermon has been delivered from the historic steeple as well as the first time during Dixon’s 10 years as pastor that he has convinced himself to climb all the way to the top.
