First Christian Church

Connect with Your Fellow

brothers and sisters in Christ

The First Christian Church of Girard welcomes you! With a modern, accessible facility, and programs for youth and adults, we remain committed to God through worship, education, and missions. Additionally, in fellowship with the community, we offer care through an active prayer ministry and a specialized community grief ministry. We hope you’ll visit soon and discover that a church is more than a building.

Come and experience the warm embrace of Faith at the First Christian Church of Girard! Our doors are wide open to all who seek a meaningful connection with God and a vibrant community of believers! 


Baptism is a sacred and transformative moment in our faith journey! As we step into the waters, it symbolizes a cleansing of our sins, a rebirth, and a renewal of our commitment to God! Baptism is a powerful expression of our faith as we publicly declare our love for God and our willingness to follow in the footsteps of Christ! 


At First Christian Church of Girard we wholeheartedly embrace our call to the serve the Lord through good works! Serving is at the core of our faith, and we believe that by reaching out to those in need, we embody the teachings of Christ! Through acts of kindness, reflection, and selflessness, we aim to make a positive impact on our community and beyond! 

Become A Member

Foremost we emphasize a relationship with God. Church membership can assist with this. Many unite with our ministry from other Christian experiences by reaffirmation of faith. For youth beginning their Christian inquiry, we offer baptism preparation workbooks and encourage parents to share that journey before scheduling a final session with the Pastor. Adults interested in baptism may counsel with the Pastor any time by appointment. Join us as we endeavor to serve God by serving others.
