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)

Father God, we choose forgiveness today toward the people who have hurt us. We forgive them because you forgive them, Jesus. We pray for opportunities to reconcile. We pray for healthy communication. We pray for healing in our hearts. Please show us how to be a good neighbor in the midst of pain.

We pledge to pursue connection when we have the chance, so that every reconciliation we have will show what the love of God can do. May the triumphs we have in our relationships bring you glory.

Amen!
