The Chancel Choir upholds a long, distinguished musical tradition at First Christian Church. The only requirement for membership is an interest in celebrating faith through music and song. The Chancel Choir provides music for the Sunday morning worship service during the regular church year and also participates in special musical events during the course of the year. Practice is held each Wednesday night at 7 p.m
These are smaller groups to help facilitate ministry and communication within our larger congregation. Social interaction is certainly a part of these gatherings, but the primary purpose is ministry to one another and personal spiritual growth. These are "small families" within our greater community and they provide opportunity for becoming better acquainted with others and for expanding one's knowledge and insight. They are intergenerational groups that include entire families as well as singles and the homebound. There is a place for everyone.
At various times of the year, opportunities are offered for studying the Bible in a small group.
First Christian Church offers Sunday Christian Education opportunities for children and youth at all grade levels, plus a variety of adult classes. Our Learning Hour is from 11:00 am to noon, following our Sunday Worship.
The Inquirer's Class gives prospective members, new members and those who are simply interested in finding out more about First Christian Church a chance to do so. A series of four classes are held each quarter. Members of the ministerial staff and lay people cover various topics including opportunities for involvement; history of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and First Christian Church; and church organization. The concluding class is a tour of the church building.
Depending on the season, First Christian Church often sponsors volleyball, basketball and softball teams which play in church leagues or just for fun. Men's women's and/or coed teams may be organized, depending on interest. Athletic ability and skill in the sport are not requirements.
