Who We Are

Who We Are

The focus of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is community; caring for each other and ministering to those in our area without “strings,” that we may fulfill the mission of Christ.  Rooted in the Hampton/Newport News area since 1888, we are a congregation comfortable with differences in opinion and yet united in a common sense of purpose and a genuine like-heartedness that naturally expands our circle of friends.

Our church is a one level building with accessible entries, sanctuary, classrooms, fellowship hall, and restrooms.

The learning hour begins on Sundays at 9:30 a.m., with groups for all ages, and then worship follows at 10:45 a.m.  Some people wear "Sunday clothes" and some dress casually, the point is that we enjoy being with each other and welcome strangers with as much joy.  

Worship services are as well as the music, a mix of traditional and contemporary.  The Lord’s Supper is open to all, and the pastor likes to keep it short to a 10-12 minute sermon!  Children are welcome in worship, and there is also a nursery available for babies and pre-schoolers.
