Pastor's Welcome

 

Grace and peace to you!  Welcome to our website—we are glad that you have found us.  First Christian Church has a rich and storied tradition of Christian mission and hospitality in Cowlitz County ever since our founding in 1928, and we have faith that you will see and feel that tradition all around you if you ever decide to stop by and visit us.  Our mission is to demonstrate and communicate the love of God in all our relationships—and that includes our relationship with you! 

 

We currently host a blended worship at 11:00 on Sunday mornings in our beautiful and elegant Gothic sanctuary.  It includes meditative and moving contemporary music from our house band, Joyful Noyz, as well as storytime for children, heartfelt words from fellow laypeople, and preaching that honors both God and the Bible and is engaging and relevant to life today.  Before worship, at 9:45 am, we offer Sunday School education classes for all ages.  After worship, we always gather together for food and fellowship.  To learn more about our worship life, ministries, and other opportunities here at First Christian, please continue to browse our website, or feel free to contact our office directly at 360.425.4220. 

 

We offer many opportunities for spiritual growth and togetherness, both on Sundays and during the week, and we invite you to prayerfully consider making your spiritual home with us.  We are very excited about the ways that God is moving and acting in your life, because in the end, the common denominator between all of these experiences, on Sundays and throughout the week is simply this: You are welcome here—so come as you are, and experience God’s love around you in this place of love and worship!

 

I’ll see you here,

Rev. Eric Atcheson

Pastor, First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Longview, Washington
