New Here? Start Here
Maybe you’re looking for a new church home. Maybe you’re not sure about church, but you’re looking for some hope. Maybe somebody invited you, and you want to be polite, so you said, “Yes, sure I’ll come,” and now you’re not sure what you’ve gotten yourself into.
We get it. To be a new person in a new place can be awkward. It’s intimidating, especially when that new place is a church.
Regardless of what you believe about God or wherever you might be on your spiritual journey, whatever has gone on in your past or whatever you are currently walking through, you are welcome here. In fact, at First Church of Christ, you can belong before you believe.
Here’s why: We believe that God loves you as you are, He receives you as you are, and He cares about you just as you are. But here’s the really good news: He loves you so much that He refuses to leave you as you are.
If you have doubts, questions, and struggles, and if your life is messy – if your life is anything like ours – First Church of Christ is a safe place to bring those things and meet the God who loves you so much.
We meet for about 70 minutes together every Sunday morning, and we go through a series of talks – Message Series – that usually last about three to six weeks. We look a the Bible, why it matters, and how to apply it to our lives.
We don’t want to waste your time. We want you to leave every week feeling that, regardless of what you currently believe about God, your experience at First Church of Christ was helpful and hopeful.
