Alternative Gift Market for Christmas

First Christian is hosting its 3rd Alternative Gift Market this year. You are invited to donate to local helping agencies that respond to hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, and more. Not only can you support this important work, but your donations can be given in honor of friends and loved ones. What better gift to give to someone who already has everything than a donation that will support someone in need? To participate, download the donation form and watch our November 14 worship service for more information.

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

You have two ways to worship with First Christian Church:

Join us for worship in the church sanctuary each Sunday morning at 10am. We continue to practice COVID protocols including: 

  • Asking everyone to mask regardless of vaccination status
  • Respecting people's desire for physical distancing (please ask before you sit with someone outside your household or offer a hug or handshake)
  • Using every other pew in the sanctuary - if you see a piece of green tape on the end of the pew, then it is open for you to sit on (green means go!)
  • Using self-contained communion which includes bread (note: this bread has gluten) and juice
  • Sharing music through solos but not yet congregational singing

Worship services are aired each week on YouTube. Each Sunday morning at 10am a new worship service will appear on YouTube and can also be viewed, along with services from prior Sundays, from this website on our Sermons page.  You can access our YouTube channel using this link:

There may be times in the future (special occasions, winter weather, etc.) when we again offer Zoom worship.  Watch the newsletter for information.

Some groups and meetings are taking place in person while others continue to happen Zoom or in a hybrid format. This includes planning meetings, Bible study, and children and youth activities. For more information on activities and ministries, check out the newsletter.  If you would like more information or links to participate, please contact the church.

Office hours during the week are Monday - Thursday, 9am - 12noon and our Office Manager is in during those hours.  Pastoral staff work a combination of at home and at the office.  If you need anything, please call the church or call or email the pastoral staff member directly.

Be well, Pastor Jill

P.S. We have a taskforce that is discussing our eventual return to the building. Many of you have questions, so the taskforce has created a set of Frequently Asked Questions.This is a working document, so you may want to return to this document occasionally for updates.
