Thank you for visiting us online.
We hope the information you find here will help you learn
about our congregation and our church.
First Christian Church is progressive in viewpoint and policy.
We are a freedom-loving body of people, seeking to be Christian in all that we say and do.
There is no attempt to dictate in Biblical interpretation or in theological thought.
In such matters members have the freedom and responsibility of private judgment.
We strive to encourage understanding and cooperation
among ourselves and all Christian believers.
We are enriched by the diversity of our congregation
and we celebrate unity in the midst of our diversity.
We seek to show a religious faith that is
intelligent, rational, practical and vital to life in the world.
People with varying beliefs and religious backgrounds find meaningful fellowship
and opportunities for service to God in First Christian Church.
We would love to have you come worship with us.
Worship Service is held every Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.
By partaking of the Lord's Supper, by the singing of great hymns of faith,
through prayer and study of the scriptures, and with
inspirational preaching that springs from the Bible,
we attempt to build spiritual strength for the challenges of life.
Children are actively included in worship each Sunday.
Nursery and toddler care is provided.
A special program of worship and activity is provided for children ages
three years old through kindergarten during part of the worship hour.
We invite you to share with us in the rewarding experience of worship.
Our doors are open to everyone, and our expression of faith is one of openness.
All are truly welcome here!
SOUNDS OF INDIANA
The Downtown Churches of Bedford, Indiana are excited to present The Bloomington Sounds of Indiana Barbershop Harmony Chorus and Jordan River Crossing. They will be live in concert on Sunday, August 2, starting at 7:00pm at Bedford First Christian Church. The event is free with a Good Will Offering taken and there will be a social hour immediately following the concert with desserts, coffee and tea. Call the church office for more information.
FELLOWSHIP HOUR (Formally Known as Cookie Hour)
Cookie Hour has now become Fellowship Hour. It will still be held the first Sunday of every month immediately following worship. Along with changing the name, we are now asking that the congregation supply their favorite food each month. It can be sweet or it can be savory or it can be both. Examples would be fruit or veggie tray, sandwiches, boiled eggs, deviled eggs, cheese ball, salads, desserts, nothing is off limits. The idea is a light luncheon and a time of fellowship with your church family. Due to a scheduling conflict Fellowship Hour has been moved to Sun, Aug 9.
SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
The Antioch Class invites you to come examine and discuss a new video series on Biblical Wisdom Literature. Led by Professor Joseph Koterski, it deals with special themes which include Friendship, Virtue and Vice, Marriage, Childrearing, Illness and Death. Class starts at 9:30 and we look forward to including you in this new study.
