Currently, we especially need help in the following areas:

In the Church:

Want to lead a Community Group?
Groups are where we grow our relationship with God and with other people. It is also how we disciple people. That’s why we are praying for 30 new Groups this fall at First Christian. We will train you and help you launch. If you would like to learn more about leading a group, please contact Hank Wilson.

Communion Volunteers
We are looking for people who can help to serve communion on Sundays. If you have a Sunday or two a month that you can help for a service, contact Debbie here. It's a meaningful and simple way that you can serve, even just in the service you already attend!

The Special Needs Ministry needs more Buddies!
Do you have a desire to build a relationship with a special child and their family?  No training needed, just a warm heart and the desire to share Jesus' love with special children while their families attend worship.  1 hour twice a month.  Please contact Elaine Stone for more information.

Funeral Meal Team
We are looking for people to help cook meals for funerals. If you are interested in helping, contact Elaine Stone at 202-0603 or

In the Community:

First Christian Days at C-U at Home: Phoenix Drop-In Center
Thursdays, 12:00P - 5:00P
Thursdays are now officially "First Christian" day to staff The Phoenix each week. At a minimum, we need a receptionist, computer assistant and a floor rover for each hour we are open. It's a great way to help our community and learn more about homelessness in a safe and welcoming environment. Sign up here!

H.I.S. Ministry
Be an American friend to an international student attending the University of Illinois.  Invite them to a few meals in your home and to participate in a few family activities, including church. It's a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate God's love and grace through simple hospitality.
