NLPC Baby Bottle Campaign
We value life. That's why we are handing out baby bottles the weekends of January 16/17 and 23/24 for New Life Pregnancy Center's Baby Bottle campaign. New Life Pregnancy Center offers compassionate support to women and men facing unplanned pregnancies. Fill the bottle with change and return to the church by March 7. You can either drop off your baby bottle at the Welcome Center on the weekends or at the church office M-Th 8:30am-5pm and Fri 8:30am-noon. If you attend church online, you can still participate in NLPC's Baby Bottle campaign by making an online donation below. Thank you for supporting the ministry of New Life Pregnancy Center!
If you have requested offering envelopes, they are available and located on a table just outside of the church office and can be picked up on the weekends or during the week. If you prefer curbside pick-up, simply give us a call at 217.875.3350 when you arrive in the church parking lot, and someone can drop the box in your back seat or trunk. Church office hours are M-Th 8:30am-5pm and Fri 8:30am-noon.
If you have never signed up for online giving and would like someone to walk you through the process, Leanne is happy to help! She is available Mondays and Thursdays from 8am-3:30pm. Give her a call at 217.875.3350.
Thank you for giving to the ministries of First Christian Church!

Student Life Winter Retreat
FEBRUARY 5 & 6, 2021
Attention middle & high school students... we are excited for our Student Life Winter Retreat! Our theme this year is “The Cry of My Heart,” and we can’t wait to see how God will work in us and through us. Bring your friends and we will have lots of fun, too.
Elders are part of the lay leadership of our congregation. They are charged with oversight of the pastoral staff, providing vital prayer, care, and decision making for the benefit of the entire congregation. Elders serve a three year term, but not more than two consecutive terms. The nominating team of elders is now accepting nominations for elders for the 2021-2022 term. Submissions must be made by January 18, 2021.
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 implemented social distancing, including the use of masks, antibacterial stations, individually packaged communion, limited capacities, and more.
