Crisis Control Ministry

My good friends!

Crisis Control Ministry was started in 1973 by a few churches, our First Christian being one, to provide food and other survival needs to families in difficult situations. We as a church have supported this Ministry every year since with donations of food and other items as well as it being a "line-item" in our budgets.
This month Crisis Control Ministry is asking that we donate BEEF STEW to fill their shelves.

When we give food, it allows the Ministry to use their funds to  supply needed prescriptions, supply a heat source, or keep a family in their home. You have been so supportive over the years and I thank you on behalf of all those families served. Purchase your gift this month and place it in the white container in the office wing. Your help is needed!

Youth Happenings

Hello all and Happy New Year! 

During the month of January we will discover the "roots" of four classic hymns. Each week, we will learn about the fascinating histories of the hymns and their writers, and learn how we can apply their messages to our contemporary lives. The hymns we will learn about are: 

Jan. 5 - Amazing Grace 

Jan. 12 - What a friend we have in Jesus 

Jan. 19 - How Great Thou Art

Jan. 26 - Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing 

Remember, starting this month, we will meet from 5:30 - 6:30 pm on Sundays. 
We will fellowship and play a group game from 5:30 - 6,
and then our lesson will be from 6 - 6:30 p.m.


First Christian Church has been fortunate over the years to have Historians among its midst. We have old photographs and some not so old photographs, 
legal documents about the church and just memories. 

Althea Gray has volunteered to be the church  Historian for 2020  and organize all those things into scrap books.  This will give us an opportunity, at a glance, 
to remember those who have come before us and how we got to where we are today.  If you have any such items you would like to share, please talk to Althea.
DWM/CWF Day Group

The women of FCC, Winston-Salem,

The shelter has a year-round list of needs that are always appreciated. They especially have shortages of men's deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, and socks.  Food items are canned meats and #10 size canned fruits, vegetables and applesauce. Please place your items next to the white bin in the foyer outside the office or in the church office.
