Returning to In-Person Worship

Even though it won’t be worship as before the pandemic we will gather once again for in-person worship beginning March 21. You may attend Sunday morning worship at 8:30 or 10. If you choose to come at 10 please know that cameras will be rolling as we will still be broadcasting that service on Facebook live.

Those attending will need to wear a mask and observe social distancing from those not in their household. Remember we will only have 2 entrances open; the elevator entrance and the Main and Jackson St corner door.

Children are welcome but there will be no nursery attendant or Children Worship and Wonder just yet. You may want to bring items to help occupy small children in the pews; like a tablet with headphones or coloring supplies.

Please watch the What to Expect video found here for more details.

WELCOME

We embrace diversity which includes differences in age, ethnicity, national origin, race, sex, range of abilities, gender identity, financial means, education, sexual orientation, political perspective, and a variety of life experiences. We welcome all to share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, responsibilities, blessings, and joys of our congregation’s life.

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)
