We recognize the need for intentional time to nurture our faith and grow through study with others. In a church our size it is easy to remain anonymous if one only attends Sunday morning worship. 

At First Christian you will find a variety of Sunday morning classes, Bible studies and discussion groups to help you grow in your faith. These groups are vital to our community life together. We encourage you to get connected by visiting one or more of the groups listed.

Questions? Rev. Dr. Chris Shorow would love to visit with you about your faith formation.
