Worship

The goal of First Christian Church is to provide a worship experience that will lead all people, believer or non-believer, to grow in the presence of God. We offer traditional and contemporary worship experiences which you can read about in more detail below.

On May 23 we announced some important updates to how we do worship. All of these changes reflect our ongoing goal to respond to COVID-19 by creating as safe and welcoming of an environment as we can for all people:

  • If you are vaccinated you do not have to wear a mask in worship. However, since many of our members, including children, cannot get vaccinated yet, we are asking anyone who is willing to continue to wear a mask for their safety and comfort.
  • Reservations are no longer required for either service, so just come on and join us!
  • We can now sing as a congregation, as long as we are wearing masks.
  • We have resumed Sunday school for the children and youth at both services.

We will continue streaming both services every Sunday at 8:45am (Turning Point) and 11:00am (Traditional). You can find those either at facebook.com/FCCILM or at fccilm.org/live.

*(Note: due to lack of demand and the extra complexities of livestreaming, we are no longer offering the audio only option by call-in. We apologize for any inconvenience).

The 8:45 am Turning Point (contemporary) service, is more informal in style and includes a message, communion and singing.

Following our time of singing, children 3 years old – kindergarten are invited to attend an exciting kids program called Children’s Worship and Wonder.  The mission of the music ministry at this service is to love the congregation and lead them into the presence of God through music, media, and other God-focused means.

The relaxed environment and passionate worship team encourage people from all walks of life into a deep relationship with Jesus Christ through love.

The 11:00 am traditional service is more formal in style and includes a sermon, communion and a wide variety of styles of music which serve to minister to the needs of the congregation.

The Chancel Choir is an integral part of the service. The hymns, organ and piano music, and anthems are selected to support and enrich the Psalms and New Testament scriptures for each service and to further the kingdom of God through music.
