Back to Church Sunday

btcsunday_iphoneNot everybody likes Church…or even has had a good experience with Church.  Some people think the walls might cave in if they step foot in a Church.  Some have just gotten out of the habit of going or think Church is boring.  Others picture the Church as stuffy, judgmental, dressed up people who are weird…and who wants to be a part of that?

At First Christian, we are far from perfect, but we strive really hard to not be stuffy, judgmental or boring!  And we would love for you to give us/Church a chance.  We believe you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find.  Again, not anything perfect, just a group of people trying to be more like Jesus everyday.  Wear your jeans, your flip-flops, your shorts, or dress up.  We don’t care about your clothes…we care about your heart.  We care about you!!  We want you to have a place you can call home.  A family to build you up and walk with you through difficult times.  A safe place to come and ask questions and investigate this God who loves you more than you will ever be able to comprehend.

Don’t you think it’s about time you got “Back To Church?”  Or maybe for some, gave Church a chance for the first time?  No matter where you come from or what you have done, you are welcome here.  Come find out why so many are calling First Christian home.  We will be waiting to meet you…hope to see you on September 15th @ 10:45!

Invite Your Friends to come “Back to Church!”
