Welcome to First Christian Church!
We are observing the holy season of
Worship Services: Sundays @ 9:30am.
First Christian Church maintains its roots in the historic church with a creative flair. We celebrate Holy Communion each Sunday and welcome all believers in Jesus Christ to the Table. We are part of what’s called the “free church” tradition, which means that you can expect worship that is deeply rooted in scripture and diverse in both music and liturgy. See “This Week” tab for what’s current.
Christian Education [Sunday school] : Sundays @ 10:45 am
FCC is a “learning church,” placing the patient and prayerful study of Holy Scripture at the very center of our life together. We host two adult Sunday school classes. One for the residents of Sunny Meadows [a county home for differently-abled adults ]. The other is a class offered at seasonal intervals (in 6-8 week studies) led by laypersons or by Pastor Sivis. See “This Week” tab for what’s current.
Ministry to Children / Youth:
FCC is committed to being an “inter-generational” church. Therefore, we invite children and infants to remain in worship so that they may participate fully in the life of the church. However, we do recognize that some parents desire a more age-oriented worship. Therefore, after the “Passing of the Peace,” all children ages k-6th grade may attend a children’s worship / Bible study, which we share with Auburn Baptist Church (currently meeting in our facility). There is also a nursery attendant who will be happy to care for infants during worship and Sunday school.
Baptism and Membership:
FCC welcomes and affirms all baptized Christians into its membership. Those who have not yet become members or who have not yet been baptized will be invited to do so each Sunday following the sermon. Before making or re-affirming their public confession of faith in Christ [see “Our Identity and Beliefs” tab for our confession], new believers and /or baptized Christians wishing to be new members will be asked to participate in a period of preparation, which will include confirmation classes taught by Pastor Sivis . Following this, all those who are not yet baptized will be baptized by “full immersion” in regular worship at a time to be determined in consultation with the Pastor. Those already baptized will be welcomed into the membership of the church by the laying on of hands and with prayer. Please contact us for more information.
