Welcome to First Christian Church of Abilene and our witness on the world-wide web. We are a mission-minded family of faith with a deep desire to bless our community, and "Love the world that God so loves."
We emphasize ministry to families and children, from our creative Sunday school classes to the "FirstACT!" children's music & drama group, to active teen youth groups and "Worship and Wonder" for children during the 11am worship service. "For Kids Only" is our twice-a-week preschool program. You'll find F.K.O. under the "Ministries" tab and the "Youth & Children's Ministry" tab.
Adults of all ages are active in Sunday school classes, "ChristCare" small groups, Men's and Women's ministry groups-- and our "Funtimers" group (55+) are experts at having fun!
I would love for you to visit a worship service on Sunday morning. "Grace Falls," a contemporary/emergent worship service led by our talented praise team, begins at 9:00am in our Chapel. Our Traditional worship begins at 11:00am in the Sanctuary and features wonderful music from our Chancel Choir, "Bonnie Belle" handbell choir, and our gifted accompanist. Sunday school for all ages begins at 10am.
May God bless you! Yours in Christ,
Don Wilson, pastor
A wonderful recent testimony from a young mom:
"I am so blessed to have found this wonderful church! They have helped me open my heart and are showing me how to teach my children to share God's love. They understand that our future is in the hands of our youth and provide so many opportunities for them to grow and become faithful servants of Christ."
And from a recent 6-year old visitor to our beautiful Children's Building: "It's like this church was made for children!"
Our Sunday School class for adults in their 20s and 30s is led by Mark Young, who is the Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Abilene. Child care is provided via nursery and Children's Sunday School. The class meets at 10am on Sundays. We are using the email-based curriculum, "The Wired Word," which helps relate Scripture to the most recent events in our nation and world. Come and check us out!
We provide interpretation for the deaf at the "Grace Falls" worship service at 9:00am on Sundays, and also the "Signs of Life" deaf adult Sunday school class.
