Quiet space on a summer day
“Rest is not idleness,” said John Lubbock, “and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky is hardly a waste of
time.” Most of us need more, not less, rest built into our daily routine. Only when we are quiet can we hear God’s whisper.
Summer is a great time to find a peaceful, outdoor spot to read, rest and pray – even if only for a few minutes. God is eagerly waiting for us to make space for him. Read more.
June 2017 Newsletter - Rev. Laurie Lewis to be new Senior Pastor -
After a process that took over a year, the Pastoral Search Committee selected Rev. Laurie Lewis to recommend to the congregation to be called as Senior Pastor of First Christian Church. A reception was held on Friday, May 12, for members, staff, and community to meet Laurie. A congregational meeting was held Sunday, May 14, for the congregation to vote on calling Laurie. There were 55 ballots marked and returned with the congregation voting overwhelmingly to call Laurie with 54 voting "yes" and one voting "no".
Laurie is a graduate of Texas Christian University where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in radio, television, and film. She says that although always knowing she was called to ministry, she tried to deny the call when choosing a lifelong vocation, however eventually discovered that God never gives up. She entered Brite Divinity School where she received her Master of Divinity and entered full-time ministry. She says, "I have since accepted my call with great joy. I absolutely love what I do and I think that is reflected in the energy I bring to worship and congregational life."
Laurie has served as interim minister of South Broadway Christian Church in Denver, CO since January 2016. Prior to that call she served as Senior Pastor of Monte Vista Christian Church, Albuquerque, NM for almost 11 years.
Laurie's first Sunday with us will be July 16. Read More.

The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a community of about 850,000 Christians in 3,800 congregations in the United States and Canada.
Two groups of frontier Christians came together in 1832 to form the foundation of today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
They shared the view that people should not be excluded from fellowship in the church because they didn't adhere to a particular human-made creed.
They used to say there is "no creed but Christ." Today's Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) still thinks that way.
We study the Bible to deepen our connection to God through Jesus Christ, and to discover what God wants us to do.
