Congregational Leadership

There are many opportunities available for you to become involved in the ministry of First Christian Church. We feel that every member is a minister and that we each share in the responsibilities of the church. We all have talents and spiritual gifts to share, and there are opportunities for us to do so. If you are interested in a certain area of involvement or have a special talent to share, please see our "Serve" page.  Also you can communicate your interest to our ministers, our church staff, or the church office. We will be glad to talk with you to help you find an area of ministry that fits you and your abilities.
