BLUE CHRISTMAS

Thursday December 19 at 7:00 P.M

Not everyone is cheery for the Christmas holidays. Some are dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other dis-ease that puts a question mark over the future. Some find parties and making merry painful at this time of year. If you or someone you know is feeling blue at Christmas, this service might be just what you are looking for. Our Blue Christmas Service on Thursday December 19 at 7:00 P.M. creates a sacred space for people living through dark times. This service will be reflective, accepting of where we really are, and offer healing and hope. A cookie reception will precede the service 6-7 P.M.

HOW WE SERVE BEYOND OUR WALLS

Community Table

In 2005, First Christian Church began serving a free dinner on Monday evenings to anyone wishing to partake. Each week, we welcome community guests into our spacious fellowship hall for a prayer of thanksgiving, hot meal, and dessert. Companionship and conversation are abundant during this time of sharing; we now welcome over 100 men, women, and children each Monday.

Haven Youth Center

In 1998, The Haven Youth Center was founded as a community-based not-for-profit organization serving middle school students. It is located in our building at 39 East Jackson Street, behind Disciple House. The Haven Youth Center is to provide students in grades 5 through 8 a safe place to come after school to hang out with friends, to visit, to play games, eat, study, learn new life skills and do community service projects.

Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos Prison Ministry mission is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women, and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities. Kairos takes teams into prisons for weekend “retreats” and follow-up meetings. FCC also provides hundreds of chocolate chip cookies, financial and prayer support.

COMMUNION

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19)
