There's something for everyone on Wednesday evenings this fall! Check out our full list of programming.

ELEVATE!

 

Sunday, August 24 at 5:30pm
Join us for a fun evening of family worship. We will have Juggling Jeff, games, cool tie-dye activities and an awesome message. We will have white t-shirts and other items you can buy to tie-dye or bring your own!
Church Tailgate Party
Sunday, September 7, after 11 am service
We will head to the "backyard" for a tailgate party! Wear your NFL jerseys, paint your faces and show some spirit! Groups will be able to promote their ministries while competing for the best tailgate food and decor. Individuals can also compete for best dessert. Prizes will be awarded.

The church will provide drinks, plates, and eating utensils, so you can share with anyone who comes to your table. In addition, there will be snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy, inflatables and face painting. Join us in this great day to get reconnected or to connect with someone new.
Church Community Builder (CCB)

Church Community Builder (CCB) is our church's new online, interactive database designed for individual as well as administrative use. Why is it helpful? Well, there are many reasons. You might want to connect with people you meet on Sunday morning. Perhaps you desire to find a place to serve, or find a Sunday School group you can feel comfortable in. Our online community will also let you update your contact information, join mailing lists, and much more. Sometimes we want to communicate internally or provide you information we don't want to make totally public. This is the place we do it.
 

If you have filled out a Connect Card in the last few months and have an accurate e-mail address on file with First Christian, you are almost ready to join. Within the next two weeks you should be getting an e-mail letting you know that you are in the system and that you have been assigned a username.

 

Download this instructional PDF for assistance in setting up your profile. If you have questions or do not get an e-mail from First Christian by August 25, 2014, please contact Virgil Brazle at 314-837-2269 x32.

 

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)

As a mom, it was hard enough bringing your baby into the world. But now its gone and turned your world upside down! This phase of life is a turbulent time for both you and your child. So while you are pouring yourself into the development of your child, let us pour encouragement, insight and confidence into you!   

Daytime MOPS meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 9:30-11:15am (starting Sept. 9)
While moms are at the meeting, their little ones are being cared for in a loving environment called MOPPETS. In MOPPETS, children are divided into age-appropriate groups and enjoy stories, games and other activities. Kids may be checked in at 9:15 am.

Evening MOPS meets each Wednesday evening from 7-8pm
While moms are at the meeting, their children are being cared for in the nursery or attending JAM Choir (ages 2 and up), where they do crafts, play games and practice for the Christmas program in December. Children can be dropped off at 6:45 pm.
