Welcome to First Christian Church. COVID what can we say? AS of November 22, 2020 we will be going back to streaming on Facebook Livestream only, hopefully this will only be for a short period of time before we are back in the sanctuary. Let's keep praying for guidance to keep all safe and secure. With the counts going up in NW Iowa and the gathering directives, this is the reason for going back to the service being online only for a little while.
As we go into the Advent season let us remember Advent means 'Coming' in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. We will weekly discuss when we will come back into the sanctuary. With advent almost upon us we want to be together and celebrate Jesus' birth. Our service will start at 9:15 a.m. on Facebook Live. The church office remains open during its usual hours of 8:30 – 3:00 Monday – Friday.
During our weekly worship service we will continue to celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week. We would invite you each in your own homes to have the elements on hand so that you can partake of communion along with us.
Although we may not be able to gather together in the same physical location each week right now we must never loose sight of the fact that it is the same God, the same Spirit, and the same Lord and Savior of us all that is present with each of us and binds us all together in the family of God.

Sunday School and MidWeek for Kids: Wednesday's - after school have been suspended until further notice.
With sad and heavy heart we will not be able to host the Community Thanksgiving Dinner this year. We will miss you, but are wishing you a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving time. There is no way to safely social distance. There is always next year. 2021 hopefully will have the Pandemic under control. There are bright spots with different pharmaceutical companies hopefully having a vaccine. Let us pray for the pharmaceutical companies and the ability to make the vaccine available.
Have a safe and the best possible Thanksgiving under these trying times.
