Another wonderful testimony from a young mom, borrowed with permission from her Facebook post:

You guys should come see (my boys) in their super cool and not completely traditional Christmas play tonight at the First Christian Church downtown, and also bring me food, but mostly watch them because it's going to be great, and funny, and super cute because kids and Christmas.

*just to make a note of it, I hear a lot of "I wouldn't mind the idea of church so much, except for the whole 'gays are bad, women are subservient, and my church is the only one that is correct' thing." can I just let you know that my church is all of NOT those things? We're open and affirming, which is church talk for allies. And we're ecumenical, which is church talk for "we believe this way about Jesus and the bible, and you believe that way about Jesus and the bible, and in the grand scheme of things, we're both probably mostly right."

So I mean, if you're looking for a great, common sense, welcoming, and happy church with the positive vibes that you'd naturally expect from a truly Christian church family, I mean. It's right down town. 

 

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. "Children Come First" is our twice-a-week preschool program. You'll find CCF@FCC 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
