Tonya – Children’s Director

Tonya is our tireless youth coordinator! (Ok, we probably exhaust her sometimes!) If there is a kid somewhere, you will find Tonya there too. She is a life-long Sedalia resident and lives with her wonderful husband Matt. Tonya has one daughter, Julie, who lives in Kansas City. In her spare time she says she “loves making things look better!” We couldn’t agree more. She is a master at interior decor and renovating and has created many of the beautiful updates at FCC.

OUR VISION

At First Christian Church, we are committed to growing deeper in our relationship with God and reaching wider for God

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

We believe that the scriptures instruct us to grow toward Christlike maturity. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we strive to follow Jesus in all that we do. Each of us is expected and encouraged to make a personal commitment to bible study, prayer, worship and service to others in the name of Christ.
 
Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. – Col 2:7

COMMUNITY

We believe that the Christian faith is meant to be lived out in communities. We also know that wholeness is experienced by Christians who are part of a community. It is very difficult to grow with God in isolation. We are excited to see that God is in the process of creating new communities within First Christian Church where we strive to be sure everyone has a spiritual home.
 
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. Matt 18:20

REACHING WIDER

We have a long history of service in the name of Christ. We continue to offer opportunities for service through our yearly mission trips, feeding the hungry, our Hands of Faith Ministry and participation in the Stephen Ministry. We also support many local ministries such as With Conviction, Relay for Life, New Haven, Show Me Christian Youth Home and others. We are each called and expected to have ministry outside of our church walls.
 
So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. James 2:17
 
MINISTRIES
Bible Story Time
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
The Children’s Ministry Team exists to build a biblical, Christian foundation in the lives of children ages 4 years old through the 5th grade.  Read more…

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

In order to be in tune with our congregations vision of Growing Deeper/Reaching Wider; we seek to create a community for our youth. The community will be focused on spiritual development, outreach, and fellowship. We will work toward these goals by creating a space where they can safely explore their faith, have incredible fun, be accepted, and where they will be involved in the life and ministry of First Christian Church. The Youth Ministry consists of 6th grades through 12th grades. Read more…
