16th Annual Global Holiday Faire a Huge Success!

On Saturday December 7th, First Christian Church hosted the 16th Annual Global Holiday Faire, an ecumenical gift faire that raises money for non-profit organizations in our own community and around the world.  With the help of our friends at Holy Family Catholic Church, Community Presbyterian Church, The First Church of the Nazarene, St. Vincent's Catholic Church and St. Dominic's Catholic Church, we raised over $13,400 for 18 different non-profit organizations.  That is the most we have ever raised in a single year!  Click Here for more on this year's Faire.

Blue Christmas Service

The holidays are full of heightened emotions and expectations.  We readily celebrate the excitement and the joy of Christmas, but many of us also experience feelings of difficulty, especially during this time of year.  It is easy to get lost in the demands, activities, lights, consumption; the holidays can be quite stressful.  Our Blue Christmas service provides an opportunity for us to slow down, recognize, and acknowledge the more difficult emotions of the season—anxiety, stress, loneliness, depression, overwhelm, frustration, grief, loss, addiction, uncertainty.  We will provide a space for anyone having a difficult time during the holidays or anyone simply needing to acknowledge some pain or loss they are carrying in the midst of this season of celebration.  All are welcome to join in this beautiful and contemplative candle light service, which will be held in our sanctuary on the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, Saturday, December 21 at 7pm.
