YOU are welcome here!

We come from many places, differing in age, differing in race, differing in orientation, politics and even our religious history/upbringing.

We celebrate diversity, and we expect everyone’s interpretation of the Bible or of the Christian life to be varied.

We believe that God provides spiritual gifts to all and we do not restrict any office or role in the church by gender.

As we come together, we discover that our differences are indeed a blessing. The more difference we bring, the more fully we experience the presence of the sacred midst.

So come children of God, just as you are. Wherever you are on this journey of life, you are welcome here, here in this place, here in this community, here at First Christian Church, Crawfordsville (Disciples of Christ).

A very special "Thank You" to Chuck Ranspach for the creation of this video.

Sacred Grounds Cafe

This service meets in our Chapel area. There is a “small group” feel to our gatherings. The majority of the message each Sunday will be discussion driven. We sing praises and glory to God, we speak with God in prayer, and we proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. We take communion every Sunday. Childcare is available in our nursery during this worship service.


Faith Learning Hour

This is like our Sunday School and we have one adult class. The class’ curriculum comes from The Wired Word. It is a discussion based class about current events. There is also childcare available during this time. If you would like more information about this class, contact our office at (765)362-4812 or email at



The Art Gallery will be available until July 7th and ALL are welcome to come see the tremendous talent of these artists anytime during church office hours: Tuesday - Thursday 10am - 2pm and Friday 10am - 1pm.
