special announcement - MARCH 18, 2020

Greetings!  Our Executive Committee met yesterday with Rev. Bill and Rev. Beth to discuss how the church will move forward in the coming weeks due to the situation with COVID-19.  We decided that our commitment to loving God and loving our neighbors as ourselves leads us to temporarily cancel worship service, Wednesday Night Live, Lenten lunches, youth group, Board meetings, and other church gatherings.  We will also have limited office hours through the week.  These cancelations shall continue until further notice, but we will reassess the situation in early April.


We are excited, however, about the steps our tech team and volunteers are taking to bring worship to members via other ways.  We will have another recorded message available for members this Sunday, and we are in the process of adding special music.  We are also working toward daily prayer, Bible study, prayer concerns, and other ways to stay connected with God and with each other in this unprecedented time.


If you have ideas or ways you can assist or volunteer, please do not hesitate to reach out to Amanda Blackketter at 


Until we can gather together again in person, please know that God is strong, that our church is strong, and that you are surrounded with love and care.  Please take precautions to be safe and healthy.  Please let the church know if you need assistance.


Prayerfully yours,

First Christian Church Executive Committee
