We're excited you're interested in our faith community here at First Christian Church. When it comes to churches we know the possibilities are endless, so we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you into our friendly and loving community. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact the church.
the worship experience
We gather together for worship on Sundays at 10:00 AM in the sanctuary. The sanctuary is best accessed by the main door facing 11th Street. An accessible entrance is located via the church parking lot.
We welcome everyone to come as they are! There is no dress code here at First Christian, so please come dressed in whatever is most comfortable for you. When you arrive there will be greeters at the door, and you can address any questions to them.
During our worship service we sing, pray, learn, and celebrate the Lord's table. Near the beginning of the service there is a time to share joys, concerns, and announcements. During the school year, our Director of Family Ministries hosts a Children's Moment where the children gather at the front for a presentation at the puppet stage. All children are welcome to remain with their families for service, enjoy our children's space in the sanctuary, or go to the nursery (second floor by the elevator).
Every week we have communion, and all are welcome to participate and receive the elements. As a Disciples of Christ church, the celebration of the Lord's supper is integral to our worship every week. Here, the elements are passed in trays by our deacons. You are invited to partake of the elements in your seat and have a moment of quiet reflection.
Following service we share in something we call Linger Longer. This allows us to fellowship in the narthex and enjoy refreshments like pastries and coffee. As always, all are welcome to gather and enjoy.
We pray that our gathering refreshes you for the week ahead!
