Communion is served every Sunday in both services.  See archives of our live stream services.
Our 9:00 am worship service is a traditional style service assisted by our Chancel Choir. The congregation is invited to join in singing hymns.

Our 11:00 am worship is a contemporary style service assisted by our praise band, Azimuth 180. All are welcome to come forward for communion, which is served by intinction, dipping the bread into the cup. Communion prayer is led by one of our elders.

Dove Black and White Christian Clipart


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


Painted Black Fish Symbol


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


Christian Healing Graphic


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
