Open Your Heart To God
Welcome to the website for First Christian Church, Danville Kentucky. The fact that you are here indicates that you have recognized that hunger within you to know God. First Christian is a community of people seeking to know God too. You will find here a community of grace where the seeker is affirmed and is not forced into someone else’s box of beliefs. You will also find at First Christian Church, that we are a community of servants. Our mission is Making Disciples Who Make a Difference, and we are making differences in the lives of people within our church family and in the lives of those outside our church. I hope you will learn a little about us on this site, and then come meet us face to face in worship, study, and service. May you find God’s blessings in your search!

GRACE GARDENS NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW
Are you looking for a way to do mission work locally? Are you interested in a one-time contribution or possibly helping for an entire season? FCC's Grace Gardens offer an excellent way to accomplish any of those goals.
Our community garden beds need soil, mulch, compost, straw, and manure. Willing hands (and strong backs!) are needed on a scheduled Work Day (possibly March 15) to help fill and prepare the planting beds located on the west lawn area of the church. Future help will be needed with planting, watering, cultivating, and harvesting.
If you can volunteer any materials, transport items via your pickup truck or utility trailer, help on the Work Day, or make a monetary contribution to help with garden costs, contact Kristi (236-4006 or via her email on staff page) or sign-up on one of the sheets at the Welcome Center in the church narthex.
The Community Garden is a wonderful way for you to help make a difference by providing fresh vegetables to those in need in the Danville area.
