First Christian Church loves to worship God. We extend our congregation and worship services to include the residents of Ivy Knoll Caring Senior Community. The Ivy Knoll worship service is every Wednesday at 6:00 at the apartments on Highland Avenue. These services offer a sermon, music, and open Lord’s Supper.
First Christian Church is glad to share a meal. We host community meals on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings, and Saturday and Sunday evenings. 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, as a church, share in a fellowship meal monthly following worship service on the 1st Sunday.
First Christian Church is a welcoming and inclusive church. We have participated in Northern Kentucky Pride Week for 3 years. 2019 was an exciting Pride month as we participated in the third NKY Pride Interfaith Gathering and invited our LGBT+ friends and allies from Cincinnati and Lawrenceburg. This collaborative service included leadership from a variety of faith groups. We also participated in the NKY Pride Parade and hosted a booth at the festival. Church members, supporters, and LGBT+ allies represented First Christian’s value of inclusion.
First Christian Church helps our neighbors. We collect and donate goods to Welcome House, the Emergency Shelter of Northern Kentucky and the Women’s Crisis Center. The estimated value of our donations in 2018 reached more than $4,000. In 2019, we started the year with a challenge to fill the baptistry with feminine care products. We collected nearly 11,000 items. Our estimate of 2019 donations reached $8,000.
