What is worship at First Christian life?
Here at First Christian, we practice elements of worship rooted in the Christian tradition such as scripture reading, sermon, prayer, giving and communion each week (may also be referred to as Lord’s Supper or Eucharist). We find our worship experience to be deeply meaningful through creative expression of song and word. Our musical styles vary from week to week ranging from ancient hymns to contemporary worship songs.
Below are many musical groups that offer their gifts in worship throughout the year.
