We Are a Church
Special August Sermon Series
We have spent a couple of months talking about our church in the New Beginnings process. So now we are going to look at what scripture tells us church is to be and do. Sunday we looked at the key role of God’s Holy Spirit as being the empowerment for both the birthing of the church and its continued faithfulness.
 Each of the five weeks of August a member will give their statement as to why First Christian is "My Church."

Sunday, August 23! Attend Worship!
It is that time to return and renew.  Summer vacations are over.....schools are back in session....our Wabash friends are returning, and our classes start back up.   Join us for worship service with the choir back from their summer break.
 A pitch in luncheon will follow in Fellowship Hall immediately following the service.  Just bring a salad or a sweet desert to share.   Table service will be provided.  
You will hear what the adult classes will be studying and LOGOS sign up will immediately follow the luncheon.

 Sunday August 30th at 9:30  Ryan Venis will be sharing his presentation “AAMMR:  A Different Kind of “charity”, or Jesus The Entrepreneur”. He will be talking about the charity, its beginnings, the philosophy, and why he chose to do partake.

If you are looking for a place where you can talk about “what’s going on in the world and what’s a Christian to do,” join us at Scripture & Salsa on Thursdays at 6:00 PM at Little Mexico. We meet every Thursday night at the tables on the east side.  Our topics focus on current events/news/hot topic issues, etc. How should Christians respond to the many problems that we face in our modern world? What insight do the scriptures give for navigating these current, pressing issues? You can follow the church twitter account for weekly topics: @fccville. We refer to scripture for guidance and eat some tasty Mexican food. All you have to do is show up, order some food, and join in. 

On July 23 we began a study of the popular book Toxic Charity. This book explores the ways in which the normal structure of charitable giving and work is actually harmful to those receiving the aid. Our discussion will be based on the book, but in such a way that others unfamiliar with the book may also participate.

LOGOS Parent/Information meeting
August 23rd at 1:00.  You can sign up your child/children at that time and look for ways you can volunteer with this great program.Childcare will be provided.

 1st LOGOS Night will be WED September 9th from 5-7 (note the time change)

†Good News Café

Sunday Mornings at 9:22 a.m.

I will be glad and rejoice in you;
    I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High! (Psalm 9:2)

 We encourage you to drop by and join us at 9:22 on Sunday mornings. Enjoy some coffee and pastries, and see what the †Good New Café is all about. Good News Cafe is a worship service. We sing praises and glory to God. We speak with God in prayer. We proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ. We take communion every Sunday. 

There is be a “small group” feel to our gatherings. The majority of the message each Sunday will be discussion driven. The theme or topic of the morning will be presented, scripture will be read and then we will have a discussion. Worshipers should feel welcome to share their experiences and thoughts regarding the day’s topic. As a community in dialogue our individual faith will be deepened, challenged, and strengthened. School aged youth are also encouraged to join us! After singing and prayer, the youth will move to the room adjoining the Chapel, for their own activities and interactive discussion session.

Hope to see you there! 

All are welcome!

You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, proclaiming the Good News of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. (Acts 10:36)

Our Vision Statement

True Community
Community is an intentional, inclusive, and interconnected Christian relationship that transcends differences in a supportive atmosphere that is empowered by our belief in the true, living God.

Deep Spirituality
Deep Spirituality is the passionate desire to have a fulfilled and authentic relationship with God through Christ that involves taking our beliefs and values of Christianity and weaving them into our lives so they provide the spirit and fire for devoted service to God.

Visible Faith
Visible Faith is the proof of our hope in God manifested as a Christ like life, shown within and seen by others as we live a life of service to glorify God and in the name of Christ.
