Cover to Cover


Many people have it on their bucket list to read the entire Bible at some point in their lifetime. However, some may be intimidated by its size or complexity. This message series is designed to help you navigate through the entire Bible cover to cover. We’ll break down this sometimes daunting text into manageable portions as well as provide a reading plan and other supplemental materials.

Car Wash Fundraiser


Support our Student Life mission trip students by getting your ride cleaned. Bring your car, truck, motorcycle, or even ambulance. Yup! They've cleaned an ambulance before. All donations help offset the cost of their mission trip this summer to Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

First Steps

WEEKEND OF MAY 18/19, 2024

If you're new or new-ish, we invite you to FIRST STEPS the weekend of May 18/19. It's a short gathering after each worship service that lasts for about 20 minutes. You'll get to meet some of our church staff as well as discover the next step in your faith journey. We'll meet at the WELCOME CENTER after each service (look for the large electric "Welcome" sign in the middle of the church lobby).

If you attend church online, we'd love to connect with you as well! We can meet sometime during the week over a coffee or set up a Zoom meeting. Whatever works best for you. Contact Hannah at hbeery@firstdecatur.org or call/text (217) 875-3350 to see up a time to connect together.

Student Life Mission Trip

JUNE 17-21, 2024

We are excited to serve in Mukwonago, Wisconsin this summer! We can’t wait to see how God will work in us and through us and how we can be the tangible touch of Jesus to the community! We are partnering with StoryHill Church, a recently planted church in the area. We will provide a VBS experience for kids in the church and community. We will also partner with Agape House which is a loving, nurturing place where hurting young women and men can take the time they need to heal. They address the spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physiological needs of these young women and men. We will serve the local high school and work alongside other organizations in the community. We will worship and learn from God’s Word together, too!

Whatever It Takes - PCO Image

Whatever It Takes


We serve a God who did whatever it takes for us by giving his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) We believe God is calling each and every one of us at First Christian Church to do whatever it takes to further this message through the mission of his church, in our community, and around the world!
