Partnership with Tarrant

One of the outreach ministries of our congregation is assisting the young people at Tarrant Middle School, which certainly helps the teachers too!   Take advantage of the sales which happen over the summer, which as every child knows… is too short!

The Welcome Table

The Welcome Table has been a signature ministry for First Christian for over 8 years.  Thanks to our amazing ministry partners we are able to offer a free dinner every Tuesday night from 6:00 -7:00. Everyone in the community is welcome.
