Join us for worship this weekend — in person or online! This weekend we are tackling the topic of rest. Although most of your calendar may have cleared up these past few months, how "rested" are you? We'll look into what it really means to discover full rest.
Worship services are Saturday at 5pm or Sunday at 9am and 11am. Online links below. We also have online services for Kids & Youth. Also, check out below what else is happening at First Christian Church.
Baptisms at Lake Decatur
SUNDAY, AUGUST 2, 2020 AT 2PM
Baptism is a unique life/spiritual experience demonstrating hope in Jesus Christ. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your lord and savior and have not yet been baptized, then there’s a cool moment for you ahead. First Christian Church has a baptism service scheduled for Lake Decatur on Sunday, August 2 at 2pm. The spot? Right in front of the Beach House. We expect it to be hot so we've arranged for a visit from Mr. Softee ice cream truck. For details and registration, click the button below. Questions? Contact Pastor Tim Revis at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217.875.3350.
Note: Even if you haven't registered and would like to be baptized, just show up and bring a towel! Someone will talk with you about baptism at the event.

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 of you 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. Although we don't have children's ministries at present in the building (we do online!), we have family-friendly worship services in the East Auditorium that include activities for the kids and kids worship music.
