VISIT: TAKE THE FIRST STEP
Sunday is the best day at FCC.
We think you’ll be right at home here. You don’t have to dress up (unless you want to). You don’t have to have it 100% figured out (we sure don’t). You just have to take that first step and know that there’s a reason you’re here. We’re saving you a seat this Sunday!
GROUPS/EVENTS: DOING LIFE TOGETHER
WE WERE NEVER MEANT TO GO IT ALONE.
God created us to exist in community with other people—to be supported, encouraged, and challenged in our journey of following Jesus. That’s because bigger life change happens in circles of people than in rows of seats. We want you to find a place where you can truly say, “these are my people.”
BAPTISM: WE ALL NEED A SECOND CHANCE
Changed Lives & New Beginnings
Baptism is the next step for someone who has decided to follow Jesus. We practice baptism like the early church by immersing fully in water—something that’s symbolic of Jesus’ death and resurrection. Baptism is an invitation for God to show up to make broken lives new, to let Him wash away past failures, and to start fresh.
VOLUNTEERING: EVERYONE BRINGS SOMETHING TO THE TABLE.
DESIGNED FOR A PURPOSE
God gave you gifts and abilities to help the church become better. The church gets a little more generous, vibrant, and diverse every time you take part. When you serve at an event or on a team at First Christian, you use your gifts to honor the one who gave them to you.
MEMBERSHIP: PUTTING YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION
A BIG BIG HOUSE!
When we talk about membership, we don’t mean a club with discounts or perks—we’re talking about a home and a family where you belong and contribute. Membership is the next step for people who want to commit to an active role in the church, including serving, groups, and giving. We believe that being engaged in your local church is an important step in following Jesus.
GENEROSITY: BECAUSE GOD GIVES FIRST; GIVES THE MOST; AND GIVES THE BEST!
LIVING A LIFE OF GENEROSITY
We give because we choose to serve Jesus and not our bank accounts. We give because He promises we’ll have everything we need when we trust Him. We give because we think Christians should set the bar for generosity. We give because we believe the church has the best hope for changing the world.
SHARING JESUS: WHAT'S THE REASON FOR THE HOPE YOU HAVE
LOVE WHERE YOU'RE AT!
The message of Jesus has to carry outside the walls of the church and into our city. Into our homes, schools and workplaces. Into everyday conversations. Who better to do that than you? Jesus told the people who loved Him to tell people He loves them. Let’s not wait for “someone else” to do it. Let’s be the change we want to see.
