New to First Christian Church?
We know that walking into a new church can be intimidating. Here are a few things we want you to know about us. At First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we believe that God has called us to love one another as God loves us. You will be welcome here! No matter who you are or where you are in your faith journey – we welcome you to our congregation.
Where to park? You are welcome to park anywhere on the streets in downtown Rockwood. Or in the Regions Bank parking behind the Church on Chamberlain Avenue.
How to dress? You will see people wearing casual clothes and those in their Sunday best. How you choose to dress is not important. We truly mean, “Come as you are!”
Where to go? Our sanctuary is immediately on your left if you enter through the front main entrance. The Education Wing with Sunday School classes and nursery is down a few steps on your right. There will also be door Greeters who will be happy to help you get where you want to go.
What to expect? Expect to have sermons that engage the scripture and connect with your heart and your mind. Song leaders typically lead us to music played on the piano. Worship leaders and the minister lead us in worshipping together. We have a special time for children called “Time with Children of Ages.” Communion is at the heart of our worship service. Together, We share in the Lord’s Supper every week. Expect to be welcomed in this place!
What about my children? Children are a vital part of our community of faith and are welcome to participate fully in the life of our congregation. Your child is welcome to stay with you in worship. We also have a nursery available for infants through three years of age.
