With your help, we can support new churches in your Region through NCM programs such as Leadership Academy, New Church Hacks, and coaching. We can also celebrate the culmination of a vision that the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) started 20 years ago: to form 1,000 new churches in 1,000 different ways. Today, we have welcomed 1,034+ new places of worship into our denomination. And the work is not finished! New and affiliating leaders continue to answer the call to be a part of the new church movement. Will you join Disciples across the United States and Canada as we celebrate the courageous leaders and all we have accomplished together?

  at First Christian Church Families Facebook Page

Lauren Bishop, Our Youth Program Coordinator, has a video, connection information, and activities on our “Adel FCC Youth and Families” Page for our children and youth. Our last Wednesday post for the church year will be June 3.  


Please check it out (there will be credits for TICKETS for these activities!).

Since the youth mission trip has been postponed, it give us an opportunity to make more items at home. Attached is directions to make the hats for the preemie babies in the NICU at Blank. Joanne M assures me that anyone can do it. If you need materials to work on this project at home, please put a message in the comments and someone will get you supplies and drop them off to you at your home.

Once you have mastered the preemie caps and want to move on to baby blankets for the incubators, let us know and we can post a video for that too.
