What do you love most about First Lubbock?
Although the the big, full sky is gorgeous in West Texas, I’d have to say it’s the people that I am falling in love with here. You are so friendly and hospitable. There is a healthy, common dependence upon one another that is contagious.
What would you say to a guest to encourage them on their journey to finding a church home?
Look for more than the temporary. Consider the importance of the church to your journey of life. Find out if the church is a place that helps you, but also helps you help others follow Jesus.
