Be a part of our Coronavirus Response Team
At First Christian Church, we want to be intentional about caring for those most vulnerable, both in our church community and in our city. While we don't yet know what the coming days and weeks will bring, we want to invite you to join us as we prepare to BE the Church during the coronavirus pandemic.
Sign up here to get updates about how you can volunteer to help others during this time.
If you or someone you know is in a position of needing help right now, please let us know. This might be as simple as having a volunteer pick up a few groceries or a prescription, or help with childcare or food. We would love to connect you with resources or volunteers who can help.
