First Community is currently supporting 28 missionary enterprises around the world, with a budget of approximately $50.000. We designate October as "Missions Month" each year, and have a special guest missionary speaker each Sunday of the month. We believe that missions is the heartbeat of God and we are following the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20
On the first and third Sundays of the month, a group from our church holds an afternoon worship service at Windsor House in Champion. Through hymn singing, Scripture reading, and a short devotional message, God's Word is shared with the residents, their family members, and the staff who attend. Time is also allotted to get to know the residents and pray for any cares and concerns that they might have.
Vacation Bible School
Each June, we have a week long Vacation Bible School from 9:00 am until 12:30 for children ages preschool through 6th grade. It's an exiting and fun filled week with the children enjoying Bible stories, games, singing, crafts and refreshments. We also have our famous VBS Store where the children can shop with their point money they earn by learning Bible verses, etc. On Fridays we always end our VBS with a closing program and picnic to which the families and friends are invited. The dates for our VBS are always advertised in the Tribune or you can get information by calling the church office at 330-898-4164.
