Church Directory Updates
We will soon begin the process of updating our church photo directory. It will include photos of the FCC community and that means YOU!
Beginning Sunday, August 24 you will have the opportunity to have you or your family's photo taken for inclusion in the updated directory. We will also have a way for you to revise or update your information.
Michele Martini is our point of contact on this ongoing project! We're grateful for her leadership.

An Evening Dialogue and Wine and Cheese Event - Sunday, November 16, 500-7:00pm
The Evening Dialogues at First Christian Church is a new thing! The time will be a gathering to share wine & cheese, develop deeper friendships, and grow together. It is also “safe space” to pose a significant question of faith and hold a dialogue together in order to be a learning community. Our pastor, Michael Dunn, will present some thoughts and help guide the conversation.
The Question: “What is the Overarching Story-Line of the Bible?” The Bible for many is one single dominant narrative that begins with Paradise in Eden, that was lost because of The Fall of human sin, where we are now wandering in Condemnation and in need of Salvation, which if we accept will lead us to Heaven, and if we don’t will lead us to Hell. This dialogue will open up space to consider other ways to look at God’s story.
Just let us know you're coming by email our Admin - Erin Donohue
