How do I enter the building?

All exterior entrance to our building are unlocked before Sunday School and remain unlocked until worship begins. Five minutes after worship begins you can enter through the main sanctuary entrance on 16th street.

When is Communion?

We celebrate communion every week during each Sunday service.

Who can participate in Communion?

All are welcome at The Lord’s Table.

How is Communion served?

Communion is received two different ways depending on the worship service.
Sometimes Communion is distributed by deacons to congregants where they are seated. In this case take a piece of bread and a cup to serve yourself, place the cup back in the tray when you are finished, and serve your neighbor next to you.

Occasionally, communion is received at the communion table, via intinction, or dipping of consecrated bread into the chalice. In this case take the bread from the serving deacon or elder and dip it in the cup before consuming it.

What is served at Communion?

At First Christian, we normally use grape juice and bread. If you would like a gluten-free wafer, please inform the serving deacon and they will make sure you receive one. On special occasions, wine is also offered along with grape juice.

Are children welcome to come to worship?

Yes, Jesus didn’t turn the children away and neither would we. We enjoy that children often play a key role in our worship. We have a children’s time during worship where all children are welcome to come to the front and hear a short lesson. Following this, the younger children are invited to participate in a “Worship and Wonder” program especially for children, but they are also welcome to stay in worship.

During some of our songs, rhythm instruments are available for the children to play while they sing during worship. All children are welcome to use the instruments. At the end of worship, children are invited to the front of the sanctuary to participate in the blessing and benediction. We also keep activity bags in the narthex (the entrance to the sanctuary) to help keep children occupied during worship.

Is the building handicap accessible?

Yes. There is a ramp entrance to the Sanctuary along 16th street and a lift at the north entrance.

Where should I park?

The church lot is located east of our building at 17th and K street. Ample on-street parking is also available. On Sundays only, parking is also available in the Masonic Lodge lot north of the building.

Is a nursery provided?

Yes, we have child care available for infants and toddlers from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm every Sunday. We also provide childcare for Wednesday night activities.
