We are a body of believers who, first and foremost love God and love people, for the glory of our Lord Jesus, the One who first loved us. (Matthew 22:37-39) We worship God reverently, we love people recklessly, we reach out to those in need fervently, we forgive because we are forgiven, we serve because Jesus served.We strive to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. At First Christian Church you can grow spiritually, you can worship freely, and you can serve others both here and abroad.
Sunday morning is an opportunity to worship God in a way that you feel comfortable. At our 8:30 am service, you can expect traditional hymns and songs accompanied with piano and organ, along with weekly communion and a message from God’s word. We also have a choir and bell choir that performs throughout the year. At 9:30 am we offer Sunday School classes for those of all ages, including a nursery for newborns, to classes for our seniors. All ages are welcome!
Our contemporary service begins at 10:30 am, led by our praise band. Our time of singing is an act of worship, so feel free to sit, stand, or raise your hands. You will see people dressed in suits and ties to jeans and t shirts. Everyone is welcome! We also serve weekly communion followed by a 30 minute message from God’s word. We offer Children’s Church, for children K thru 5th grade after the communion, held in our church chapel. Feel free to have your child attend Children’s Church or feel free to have your family worship together in the sanctuary. We are free in Christ!

What To Expect
Our foundation sits squarely on the Bible. While it may sound a bit old fashioned, we have found that the truths of God’s Word are timeless and they work in every generation. When you visit us, you will find others who love God and love people. We are more concerned with your heart than what you are wearing, so feel free to dress as you like. God does not look at the outward appearance, but the heart.
Visiting a new church can be intimidating, but no worries. We have greeters at the front door to greet and answer any questions you might have. Free coffee in the lobby. After opening announcements we have a Meet and Greet time in which people move about the church to mingle. People will seek you out. We want to get to know you! We have dynamic ministries tailored for growth in Christ for all ages. It is our desire as you worship with us, you grow as a follower of Jesus.
Youth at First Christian Church
We are very excited to have our kid’s ministry (K-5th grade) on Sunday mornings at the 10:30 am service. They will have games, a lesson and friends! We love the idea of teaching your kids about the love of Christ early in life and are excited that this ministry is going to do that in a powerful way. Bring your kids and be ready to hear some awesome bible stories from them!
FROG N ROCK!
We meet on Sunday Evenings from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm for grades 6th thru 12th. From 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm we have chill time, ice breakers, and message/small group time. From 6:00 - 6:30 pm we have FOOD!

Children’s Ministry is for Kindergarten through 5th graders and JHH Students. Our “Mid-Week Outlet” Program is offered on Wednesday nights from 6-7:30 pm during the school year. This hour and half will be jam packed with dinner, worship, dynamic teaching and games. Here at FCC we are all about developing our kids into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. This means our kids grow up to love God, are actively serving His purpose, and are in the process of growing to honor God in all areas of their lives. We hope to see your child!
