Sermon Series January 8th- January 29th , 2023
 
What is the nature and purpose of a church? Churches can build their church upon many different things. We are going to talk about who we are as a church and how you can be apart of it.
Matthew 16:18 “Upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
 
 
Sermon January 1st, 2023
 
 
Start the new year by worshiping with us as we walk through the Parable of the Farmer. We will ask you what will you grow in 2023?
 
 
Sermon Series December 4th- December 18th, 2022
 
Darkness is best defined as “the absence of light.”  The Bible uses darkness about 200 times as a metaphor to describe what life is like without God.  Jesus came to earth as the LIGHT OF THE WORLD so we would no longer live a life without God.   
 
 
 
Welcome!
 
Whether you are brand new to the church thing or you’ve been around church for a while; we want to say welcome! Our goal at First Christian is to create environments and experiences where you can encounter God in the midst of your life. When you come to First Christian on a weekend, our aim is that you would be inspired by the music, encouraged by the message, welcomed by our amazing community of people & be reminded that God’s grace is here!

THE CHURCH
We want ALL people to FIND and FOLLOW Jesus
 
Christ came to earth with a mission. To find people and invite them to follow Him. The church is called to be a movement and create a movement of people living “on mission” with God.
 
“God has us here on purpose, for a purpose, on mission, for His mission.” -Christine Caine

The Church
Our History
 
It is a rare privilege to be part of such a church as First Christian with a great historic past. Alexander Campbell, one of the founding fathers of Christian churches, preached several times in New Philadelphia. James A Garfield preached as a guest minister in this church before he became President of the United States. We are blessed to be part of a rich heritage of faith. 
The physical building of FCC has undergone many changes that date all the way back to 1844 when the first building was erected. Our stained glass windows are original to the building that was dedicated in 1899. The Kid City wing was built in 1958. The original design of our auditorium and social hall took shape in 1975. Today we are blessed with our current structure that underwent a major renovation in 2004.
