Financially Supported Ministries

The local missions we will be supporting financially per the 2018 approved budget is Family Promise, Willow Domestic Violence Center, Martin Luther King Scholarship Fund, Justice Matters and KU Intervarsity.  We will continue to support the Swanson Family (Wycliffe), the Kerstetter Family (Ethnos 360 formerly New Tribes), and the Disciple Missions Fund (monthly support and various offerings throughout the year). 

First Christian Church exists to make disciples of Jesus. To make disciples of Jesus, First Christian’s ministries are committed to teaching disciples to obey everything that Jesus commanded (Matt. 28:19), expressed by Gather, Grow, Go. We Gather to worship and care for our community; we Grow to be like Jesus; we Go to share the gospel and serve the world.
