First Christian Church

The First Christian Church welcomes you to Celebration Sunday with 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.

The community is invited to a Coffee House from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. each Wednesday. This will be a relaxed atmosphere where you can hear the sermon from the previous Sunday while sharing a cup of coffee with others.

Elev8 classes for children and junior high youth 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. For more information on how to get involved in a class or small group, call the church office at 812-663-8488.

Due to the overcrowding at our August opening, the Kids’ Closet of Decatur Co. has been moved to Greensburg City Hall. It will be opened there from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30. Children from kindergarten to sixth grade will be given “free” winter clothing. No papers are required to be filled out. The one requirement is that the child be accompanied by an adult. We are in need of all children’s sizes of new underwear. Anyone volunteering to work call Sue or Jerry Abplanalp at 663-2084.

Kids’ Closet of Decatur County and Thirty-one consultant Bonnie Fischer are teaming up for “CROP 4 KIDS” – a day of Scrapbooking & FUNdraising Saturday, Nov. 9, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the FCC Family Life Center. Contact Bonnie Fischer at 812-593--0364 or email: fischerb1@msn.com for more information.

With Operation Christmas Child, “Every shoe box offers an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a hurting child.” If you would like to participate in this outreach, shoe boxes to fill with gifts are available in the Holy Grounds at First Christian Church along with instructions for packing a box and gift suggestions. Boxes will be collected in the Holy Grounds and are due by November 17.
