FallbackNovember 2nd

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2am this Sunday, so be sure to turn your clock back an hour before going to bed Saturday night. 

To celebrate falling back, individual Connect Groups will be hosting breakfast. What better way to celebrate the extra hour than with friends and church family. Connect Groups start at 9am here at First Roanoke; please come out to visit us Sunday morning, and enjoy food and fellowship in both Connect Groups and our Worship service starting at 10:20am.

This year, we have a goal of 1,000! Please, if you take a shoebox from our church, drop it back by the church, instead of another location, so we can meet our goal.

Hundreds of thousands of college-aged young people will come together in stadiums and arenas across the USA and around the globe to worship Jesus, breathe in His presence, be shaped by the His Word and join hands to extend His mercy and grace to the world.

So we hope you’ll join us in Atlanta and find your place in His story, the story of the “Jesus generation.”

The cost is $300 which includes ticket, travel and hotel! You don’t want to miss this!
