Be patient with us as we navigate the days ahead. These are uncharted waters. We need your prayers, patience, and support as we prayerfully and carefully consider all that is in front of us.
Since the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic, First Christian has monitored and implemented the requests of our governing authorities to maintain a safe enviornment. Initially, this resulted in our voluntarily shutting down both the Church and the Philadelphia Access Center buildings. We began livestreaming our Sunday worship services and our Thursday Bible studies and monitored the Access Center phone lines to provide services as needed. However, much has changed since the early days of quarintine, therfore keeping pace with those changes and to remain compassionate toward those who are at risk for serious illness, we have made the following changes to our schedule;
Sunday morning 11:00 AM worship services - Live in person in the church sanctuary and will continue to be livestreamed on our Facebook page. Children Sunday School has also resumed.
Tuesday prayer 7:00 PM - continues via conference call.
Thursday Bible study 7:00 PM - In person in the Church Fellowship area as well as online via Zoom.
Friday men's group "Free Indeed" - Meets in person in the Church Fellowship area.
The Philadelphia Access Center - Hours: Mon-Thur 9:00am - 3:30pm. Appointments are recommended.
Please note - As additional meetings and services resume, we will update this site.
We believe that our gathering together is an essential part of the Christian experience. Therefore we are committed to continuing to provide a safe enviorment for everyone to enjoy worship and fellowship.
Please remember to continue to show brotherly love to one another. Make a point of checking in on each other especially those who are unable to come out to services.
Let us continue to communicate to one another, pray for each other, and be faithful to embrace what opportunities have been given to us to continue hearing the Word and sharing the gospel.
In addition, we have a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Jesus during this time; [Col 4:5-6] 5 Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity. 6 Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.
Please contact our office at The Philadelphia Access Center (215) 389-1985 if you or anyone that you know needs help during this stressful time.
Also, if you haven’t done so already, please download the FCA app. This is a great way for us to communicate and stay in touch.
Above all do not give in to fear and hysteria – “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
