On September 17, 2017, we are planning a celebration service here at the church, a “homecoming” if you will. We are inviting members who have moved away, family that isn't in the area any longer, kids that grew up in FCC, as well as former staff members, timothies, and our missionaries to join us for that day.
150 years ago, in 1867, a small group of individuals established a permanent church in Fairfield. Their vision for a Christian Church in Fairfield grew into what we know today as First Christian Church. It is their faithfulness and the faithfulness of hundreds, if not thousands of others that we are celebrating this year.
But it is not only their faithfulness that we are celebrating. It is ours as well as we look to the future to where God will lead so that in another 150 years. If Jesus waits that long, the Kingdom will still be advancing through the blessing of God and the efforts of the people of First Christian Church in Fairfield Illinois. Not only in Fairfield, but around the world as well.
