    The Season of Lent is Here!

Lent is the preparation, prayer and fasting time of the Christian calendar that begins with Ash Wednesday and ends 40 days later, not including Sundays, in celebration of Easter Sunday.  Holy Week is the last 7 days of Lent that begins with Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and the week progresses from celebration to mourning through the culmination of Jesus’ arrest, trial, cruxifixion, death and Resurrection from the dead.  The celebration of Christ’s Resurrection is the reason for Easter Sunday.

We are a movement of wholeness in a

fragmented world…

Unsure of what the future holds?  Struggling with day to day living?  Stressed by the news locally and worldwide? Feel lonely and out of touch with family and friends?  Do you long for a way to gain ground and be centered somehow? Jesus said…”Come to me all of you who are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”  Many individuals and couples have come through the doors of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) from other churches and all walks of life.  They are amazed as they walk through the door to be warmly greeted with a smile, handshake or a hug and feel “at home” for the first time in way too long.  Jesus was all about having relationships.  He started one-on-one with each Disciple…calling them to follow Him.  We believe that relationships are important too.  We would love to make your acquaintance.      Discover the Disciples Difference!
