We are excited for VBS 2021. The theme of this year's VBS is Under Construction! It will be a fun summer experience for children ages 3 up to 5th grade. We will have plenty of bible stories, music, games, and crafts (even a little bit of water fun). A light meal will be provided.

Saying YES to God-sized dreams!
Church can be an intimidating place to visit - especially if you don't know what to expect. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship services. You can engage with others and find ways for your whole family to connect. We hope that visiting with us allows you to experience the hope, love, and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.
We look for God's love in our lives as evidence that we have been truly worshiping God.
At First Christian, communion is at the heart of our worship. Our table is open and we believe that ALL are welcome!

We are the red brick church located at 29 N. Oakes, downtown near Shannon Hospital.
Our parking lots are located off College St between Oakes and Chadbourne.
Although there are several entrances into the church, the best entrance is in the rear by the playground.
We are proud of our historical building though it can cause challenges for first-time guests; if you get turned around, just ask a greeter for help.
