What’s Happening

It's week 3 of "At the Movies" this weekend! If you or some you know is going through a significant struggle, an illness, or more specifically is a caregiver, this week's message is for you. Invite someone you know to join you for church who needs an encouraging message from the Lord.

Join us for worship this weekend — in person or online! Worship services are Saturday at 5pm and Sunday at 9am and 11am. We also have in person and online services for Kids & Youth. Also, check out below what else is happening at First Christian Church.

Please note that we will be live streaming "At the Movies" on Church Online Platform only. We will resume live streaming on YouTube and Facebook Live the weekend of October 17/18.

S'mores Night


SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 FROM 7-8PM

The nights are getting chilly, and that calls for roasting marshmallows on an open fire and enjoying time together. Let's enjoy s'mores in the backyard of the church! We'll provide the food so all you have to do is bring a roasting stick and chair. All ages are invited to this free event. Don't forget to invite friends to join you!

Baby Dedication Celebration

DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS MONDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2020

We love babies! We especially love when parents dedicate themselves to raising their child to know and love Jesus. That's why we have Baby Dedication Celebrations. While they will look a little different this year due to COVID-19, we have scheduled 3 fall events instead of just one so we can appropriately social distance. If you have a child under the age of 2(ish) and would like to participate in our next Baby Dedication Celebration, click the button below:

Community Food Drive


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2020 FROM 6AM-6PM

First Christian Church partners each fall with the WSOY Community Food Drive to gather non-perishable food for The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and other community food pantries. However, due to COVID-19, this year we will be collecting monetary donations instead. You can help with the food drive by making a monetary donation or by volunteering for a 3-hour shift to take phone pledges at the church.

Worshipping In Person or Online


You're spiritual and physical well-being are our top priority. That's why we have online worship services for those who are more comfortable worshipping from home, and we've created a safe environment for those who want to gather in person for worship. We have adapted multiple spaces in our building to ensure social distancing, including the use of masks, antibacterial stations, individually packaged communion, and more.
