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.

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)

Pancakes and sausage... Tacos... Chili... Pizza... Spaghetti... Are you hungry yet? We are!

These are just some of the meals we have served at Community Table for over 17 years.

At First Christian Church, Monday nights from 5:30-6:30 PM are Community Table nights. The mission statement for this local operation is twofold: The Community Table–seeking to be (1) a tangible response to God’s call and commandment to be a hospitable people and (2) a figurative and literal extension of the Table of the Lord’s Supper – offers a weekly, free meal, as well as fellowship and prayer, to anyone in the community who wishes to participate.
Originally, 11 teams, manned by members of First Christian Church were the preparers, servers and cleanup crews for the meals.

But over the years many teams have been formed and added to the roster from churches and organizations around Martinsville, including: First Baptist Church, First United Methodist Church, St. Martin’s Catholic Church, Hyndsdale Christian Church, Liberty Christian Church, the Noon Lion’s Club, the Rotary Club, Boy Scout Troop 219, Tri Kappa Sorority, Home Bank, 4 H Junior Leaders, 4 H Swine Club, City Changers from Mooresville and The Haven (led by First Christian’s Youth Group.)

We love Community Table because it provides both food and connection for those in our community who are hungry.

Welcome to GivingTuesday with FCC!

"What is that?", you ask.

It's a worldwide day of giving, inspired by the idea of "Radical Generosity" -- that the suffering of others should be as intolerable to us as our own suffering. GivingTuesday reimagines a world rebuilt upon shared humanity and generosity. (Learn more on the GivingTuesday website, www.givingtuesday.org/)

FCC aligns with these ideas, which is why we decided to jump on board with GivingTuesday. First Christian Church is passionate about serving our community, and we know that our supporters make our outreaches possible.

Stay tuned throughout the day for more info about us and our ministries... And how YOU can be a part of GivingTuesday with us!
