“Jesus & the Radical Reality of Suffering” is the title of the message presented by Pastor Paul Rebelo on Palm Sunday, at 10:45 a.m. Children will be leading the “Procession of the Palms” during worship and the annual Easter Egg Hunt immediately follows worship. Assistive listening devices are available to worshipers with hearing loss during the service. Real-time captioning also is offered on many Sundays. Visitors are always welcome.
First Christian Church, located at 650 McCallie Avenue, is a church of service, not lip service. The church has a long list of ministries. Volunteers and/or participants are always needed and more than welcome to participate. If you are looking for a way to help others, First Christian Church would be a good fit for you.
Looking to the week ahead, a special dinner night is planned for Thursday, Maundy Thursday, at 5:30 p.m., followed by worship and a special choral presentation, “Colors of Grace,” lead by choir director Gary Wilkes. Dinner reservations are due by Monday. A complete dinner is only $5; UTC students with ID are admitted free. Volunteers will be providing Easter dinner to families at Chattanooga Room in the Inn on March 31, call the church office if you would like to assist.
Upcoming activities will include Wednesday Night Fellowship dinner on April 3, followed by a special program by “Jericho Brass,” Chattanooga's traditional brass band. FCC Middle School Youth will attend a retreat from April 5-7. Another way the church provides service is through assistance with Family Promise guests.
