Messenger of Faith

We invite you to become messengers of faith and join our vibrant congregation. Your presence and participation are invaluable, and together, we can make a profound impact on each other’s lives and the world around us. As we come together in fellowship, we find strength, comfort, and inspiration. Each member brings a unique gift, and your voice, your talents, and your heart are deeply valued here. Embrace the sense of belonging and warmth that comes from being a part of a caring and supportive community. Whether you are seeking spiritual growth, answers, or simply a place to call home the First Christian Church embraces you with open arms and hearts!

Fellowship

Through fellowship, we create a welcoming community, fostering meaningful connections among our members. We are not merely individual believers but a family united by a common purpose, sharing our joys, sorrows, and triumphs as we walk hand in hand on this path of discipleship! Let us continue to create a vibrant community where love abounds, grace prevails, and the presence of Christ is evident! 

Worship

In the act of worship we transcend the boundaries of time and space entering a sacred realm where we can lay our burdens at the feet of God and find solace in his presence. Together, we lift our voices in song offering melodies that resonate with the depths of our souls. In prayer we pour our hearts, knowing that God hears every word and embraces us with His boundless love and grace. Amen!

Education

We believe that nurturing your minds and hearts with the lessons of Christ will illuminate your path and guide you through life’s challenges. As we embark on this educational journey together , we aim to create a space where curiosity is encouraged, your questions are welcomed and your faith is strengthened. 

Outreach

As followers of Christ we are called to be His hands and feet, reaching out to our community with love and compassion. Outreach is not nearly a program or an event; it is a way of life that embodies Christ’s teachings. In our outreach efforts we have the incredible opportunity to be instruments of God’s grace, extending His love to those who need it most. Through outreach we spread His word and share the good news of salvation.
