Worship at FCC

Services

First Christian Church offers two different opportunities to worship together as a community. We offer our traditional worship at 8:45 AM and our Contemporary (W.O.W.) at 10:45. Sunday School for all ages is offered from 9:50am to 10:40am


Traditional @ 8:45

Our Traditional Worship service is a wonderful mix of old and new.  We sing a both beloved hymns of the faith and contemporary ones from the blue hymnals located in every pew (the words are also projected on screen.) Every week you can also expect to hear a special music offering from our Chancel Choir, Handbell Choir, or a special guest. The scripture, a sermon, and Communion are also present every week in our worship services to invite us into deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  


The worship bulletin, provided as you enter the Sanctuary, will guide you through the worship service. As a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we practice “open” communion; all followers of Christ are welcome to share in Communion as the bread and cup are passed.


Wide Open Worship (W.O.W.) @ 10:45

Wide Open Worship (W.O.W.) spends time singing and praising God together, praying, learning from scripture and one another, listening to a Message offered, and meeting at the Table for communion together. W.O.W. worship service is led by our WOW band, made up of vocalists, guitarists, a keyboardist, and drummer. Children ages preschool through fifth grade are invited forward for a Children’s Moment and then invited to Prayer, Bible, and Jesus, a worship experience for children. As a congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we practice “open” communion; all followers of Christ are welcome to share in Communion as the bread and cup are passed.


Music

FCC believes one of the best ways to worship is through music. We are committed to offering a beautiful noise to the Lord. We do this through a variety of different choirs and bands which help lead the congregation in worship.

  • Chancel Choir

    The Chancel Choir is a chance for worshippers to help lead and praise the LORD through music during our Traditional Worship service. The Chancel Choir sings a variety of choral arrangements from ancient chants to contemporary arrangements. Rehearsals for the Chance Choir are Wednesday evenings at 6PM and Sunday mornings at 8AM.

  • Handbell choir

    The Handbell Choir brings special music to both the Traditional and W.O.W. services. They offer music arranged for the beautiful instrument known as the handbell. Participation in worship is monthly. Rehearsals for the Handbell Choir are Wednesday evenings at 5PM.

  • Joyful noise CHILDREN'S choir

    FCC’s Joyful Noise Choir is our choir for children. Young persons ages 3-5th grade are invited to join. They offer music on an occasional basis during both our Traditional and W.O.W. services. Rehearsals for Joyful noise choir are Sunday mornings at 10:15 after SEEK Sunday School.

  • W.O.W. Band

    The W.O.W. Band leads the 10:45am worship service through contemporary music.
