Throughout its history the Disciples of Christ have had a strong commitment to Christian outreach. In the scripture we have clear teaching on the importance of ministering to persons in need. First Christian Church is committed to supporting global and local outreach in the following ways.
Approximately 10% of our contributions go to Basic Mission Finance, the outreach arm of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Basic Mission Finance supports 72 separate ministries of the church at home and around the world.The Week of Compassion offering is collected each February. This offering provides emergency relief and developmental assistance as needs arise around the world.
The Reconciliation Offering is collected in September. This supports ministries aimed at breaking down racism, poverty, and injustice in Tennessee and in the United States.
First Christian Church supports a variety of local ministries that are consistent with our mission.
