The Mission of First Christian Church is to be a community modeled after Christ’s ministry of compassion, caring and concern, welcoming a diversity of gifts, beliefs, and methods of service. We are an accepting Church that combines various traditions of the Christian faith. We seek unity in diversity, acceptance in disagreement, and give an open invitation to all.
First Christian Church is a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) which practices unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table. As part of the body of Christ, we welcome all as the Lord has welcomed us. Communion is an important ritual in our tradition, and it is the reason why a chalice with the cross of St. Andrew is our denomination’s logo.
In April 2018, First Christian Church said good bye to the historic marble building we worshipped in for over 100 years! It was a momentous, welcomed change for us.
