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.
