First Christian Church

First Christian Church welcomes you Sunday to our worship services at 8 a.m. (traditional) and 10:30 a.m. (contemporary), 425 North Broadway, Greensburg.

Sunday School classes are at 9:30 a.m.

This Sunday, we’ll look at the fourth chapter of The Story - “Deliverance (Moses).” The Story takes specific selections from the NIV scriptures and places them in chronological order so the reader can better understand how God’s story and our story intersects. If you would like to join us in this study, a participant book is recommended. Books for all ages are available at christianbook.com or locally at Rainbow Books. If you would like to catch up on the sermons, recordings are online at www.fccgreensburg.wix.com/home or you can request a CD through the church office. Classes on The Story are available during Sunday School, Wednesday nights, and in small groups. For more information, please call the church office (812-663-8488).

Elev8 classes for children, junior high youth, and adults will meet this Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with a meal served for children, junior high youth, and volunteers at 5:45 p.m. Senior high Elev8 classes will meet Sunday night from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. with a meal served at 5:45 p.m. All classes at both sessions will dig deeper into The Story.

Gleaner’s Food Bank will be on the First Christian Church parking lot from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24.

A Spaghetti Dinner supporting the Applachian Mission Trip will follow the 10:30 a.m. worship service Sunday, March 2.

The trip will be May 7 to 11.

Contact Shelly Walsman at 663-8246 for more information.
