First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
As of April 8, we are planning to have worship outdoors on the front lawn of the church at our regular worship time (10am), weather permitting. Please feel free to participate in a socially distanced worship service.
Also, at this time we anticipate continuing virtual worship for those who do not want to attend outdoors. As we navigate this COVID-19 time, please note:
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: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd76kn4RbaYl86nLc2HPGnw.
Other groups and meetings are taking place on Zoom. This includes planning meetings, Bible study, and children and youth activities. We are adding some Virtual Interest Groups. And you are invited to initiate one! 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

Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. (Romans 15:7)
At First Christian Church of Iowa City/Coralville, we aspire to share God’s expansive and unconditional love with all, with respect and positive regard for our human differences. Whatever your lived experience, skin color, native tongue or dialect, ethnicity or nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, relationship or family status, age, size, physical or mental health, economic situation, addiction, ability or disability, education level, profession, faith history, and politics … there is room for you at the table. It is God’s welcome and is without limitations.
By God’s grace and following Jesus’ example, we invite you to join us in community and communion. We embrace you as a fellow child of God, equally and deeply loved and with full access to the kin-dom that we strive to inhabit. If you are among us, you are one of us.
