SERVING THE WORLD
Unfortunately, you don't have to look very hard to see ways in which our lives and communities are broken and fragmented. The good news is that God created the church to be not only a place where you worship but also the hands and feet of Christ in the world.
At First Christian Church we take the call to be a healing presence in the world very seriously. In fact, we've even created a program that allows friends of First Christian Church to apply for grants that will help them answer the call to make a difference.
On this page are some of the almost 150 ministries that have been funded by one of our Wholeness Grants, each of which is made possible through the generous gifts offered to God by members and friends of First Christian Church. You can see all of them by clicking the "read more" buttons.
Where do you see brokenness in the world?
How can you bring healing to whatever that may be?
If your calling to make the world a better place would benefit from some monetary support, please consider applying for a wholeness grant today!*
We have given out all of our grant money for 2019. Please re-visit this page in early 2020 for next year's application. We will not accept any grant applications until that time.

*If grant money is approved, you will be asked to agree to the following:

We also ask that you help us share the story of your ministry through video, photo, and potential testimony. Further instructions will be provided on how this can be done at the time of grant approval.
Please note that all grants applications for the current year are due by
