In the recent past, First Christian called itself “A Thoughtful Church in the Heart of the Cities.” While we don’t use the motto anymore, it’s meaning reverberates through our faith community. Christian Formation, learning what it means to follow Jesus, is an important part of the life of this faith community. Here is a list of available experiences that will help you grow in your faith or become acquainted with Christianity. Everyone is welcome no matter if you have been a Christian since birth or don’t believe in God at all. Questions are encouraged!
