Welcome to First Christian Church of Colorado Springs
We have a strong commitment to children and youth, we seek to practice “radical hospitality” and to accept folks wherever they are on life’s journey. You’ll never be told what you "have to" believe, and, perhaps most important, everyone is treated with respect and dignity; no one is second-class and all are truly welcome!
We are part of a whole movement of Christians – the Disciples of Christ – who seek to embody true community, deep spirituality, and a passion for justice. Learn more about our movement nationally and internationally at www.disciples.organd more about our "wider church family" in the tri-state Central Rocky Mountain region.

This Weekend at FCC...
Sunday, March 8
WORSHIP! WELCOME BACK PASTOR CHUCK!
At both the 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. worship services, Senior Pastor Chuck Blaisdell will be back in the pulpit after his Educational Leave/Sabbatical time, preaching a sermon entitled "To Whom He Gave the Name...." based on Mark 3:13-19, continuing the series on the Gospel of Mark. Our special music at the 8:15 a.m. service will be the African American spiritual "Hand me Down My Silver Trumpet," offered by a Men's Ensemble, and at the 11:00 a.m. service our Chancel Choir will sing Aaron Copland's "Zion’s Walls." It's "Second Sunday Noisy Offering," too, and this month's beneficiary is TwoCor, a local mission group that has been using our building for their much-needed work and activities.
The "Flock" Luncheon Fellowship Group will gather for lunch at Paravicini Italian Bistro, 2802 W Colorado Ave. Please RSVP to Marthe Schwartz as soon as possible.

"We seek to be a congregation where spiritual growth is the norm,
where growing in faith is expected, and that expects and
respects a diversity of opinion.
We will be a community of faith, radical in hospitality, outrageous in generosity
and joyful in service to God and neighbor."

A Message From our Senior Pastor
17th century French mathematician Blaise Pascal said that every human being has a "God-shaped hole" in the heart that is seeking to be filled. Here at First Christian Church we want to joyfully help you find how God is offering you purpose, meaning, and a connection with something larger than your own life. Check us out!
