2024 Construction Times - Announcements (1920x1080)

New Times


The construction crews have moved in, and we are going to make the East Auditorium our temporary home for a while. We have new worship service times to accommodate everyone in the East Auditorium:

Saturday 5pm
Sunday 8am, 9:30am, & 11am

You may have a few questions so we'll try to answer them here:

  • Enter through the Atrium doors
  • FirstKids Birth-5th Grade will be offered during all worship service times
  • Church online will be offered during these new times
  • During construction, Mosaic Café will only be serving free drip coffee and $1 donuts on the weekends. They will offer their full menu weekdays (except they will be closed for inventory June 17-20).

We appreciate your patience and flexibility while the building is under construction. Whatever it takes!

Whatever It Takes - PCO Image

Whatever It Takes


ONE FUND. TWO YEARS. THREE TARGETS.

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!
