IMPORTANT: Text Scam Alert
Some of you may have received the following text message claiming to be from Pastor Bob:
Hi _________, I need a favour form you text me back as soon as you get this message.
Rev. Bob Martin
This is a scam.
DO NOT reply to messages from 501-215-5555 or any others vaguely requesting assistance. This is NOT a legitimate number.
Our staff is NOT asking you to buy things, gift cards (Target, iTunes, etc), or send money by text or email request. The church helps those in need through tithing and other giving, not in this way.
Please always call our office if you have any questions regarding donations or other requests. Thank you to those who have contacted us about this issue.
A Message from Pastor Bob Martin
Hello friends at First Church!
Patti and I are so excited to become part of your family. I have enjoyed connecting with you already through Sunday on-line worship as well as following you on Facebook. There is so much happening at this wonderful church and my heart is deeply touched by your commitment to bring the love and grace of Jesus Christ to the city.
The Martins are all about family and that is my personal philosophy with life as well as the Church. This season of ministry brings joy in that our family expands by having each one of you part of it. We look forward to many years of ministry together and to see the heart of Jesus transform lives in the city of St. Petersburg and beyond.
