First Christian loves to worship God. We extend our congregation and worship services to include the residents of Panorama and Ivy Knoll apartments. Our Panorama worship service is at 12:30 on the third Sunday at the Panorama Apartments on Fourth Street. The Ivy Knoll worship Service is every Wednesday at 6:00 at Ivy Knoll Senior Community on Highland Avenue. These services offer a sermon, music, and open Lord’s Supper.
First Christian is glad to share a meal. We host community meals on Thursday mornings, and Saturday and Sunday evenings. Saturday Community Dinner is at 5:30 in our downstairs Fellowship Hall. Meals are prepared and served to whoever is hungry. We share the ministry of hospitality with other churches throughout the year to provide meals to our neighbors. We offer our space to 2 ministries who provide meals on Thursday mornings and Sunday evenings.
First Christian is a welcoming and inclusive church. We have participated in Northern Kentucky Pride Week for 2 years. 2018 Pride week was an exciting week as we participated in the second NKY Pride Interfaith Gathering. This collaborative service included leadership from a variety of faith groups throughout NKY and Cincinnati. We also participated in the NKY Pride Parade and hosted a booth at the festival. Church members, supporters, and LGBTQ allies represented First Christian’s position of inclusion and acceptance.
First Christian helps our neighbors. We collect and donate goods to Welcome House. The estimated value of our donations in 2018 reached more than $4,000. In 2019, we will be collecting a special Christmas in July donation of goods to help the Welcome House during the months they are in most need because agencies are forgotten.
