Additional Adult Ministry & Fellowship

Bunko Ministry

The Bunko Ministry provides for fellowship and support of chosen ministries in the Topeka and surrounding area. We meet the first Thursday of every month, enjoy a few games of Bunko and then winners choose which ministry will receive their winnings. Join us for fun and fellowship. If you have questions call Susan Wright or the church office.

Card Ministry

The Card Ministry provides hand-made greeting cards to spread God’s word to all nursing home residents at the Kansas Christian Home in Newton, KS for their birthdays, religious holidays, and other events. To provide encouragement, we also make cards for our FCC home-bound members, those experiencing health issues, or those who have suffered the loss of a
loved one.

If you love expressing yourself creatively, or would like to learn how to make greeting cards, please consider joining us.  Please contact Sandy McDaniel for more information.

Health Ministry Team

The Health Ministry Team provides focus on the health needs of our congregation.  The goal of this faith-based health and wellness program is to focus on the spiritual, emotional, social and physical dimensions of individuals to help them achieve wellness and manage health. This team supports the Parish Nurse program by providing assistance with tasks and determining the priorities for the congregation. The team has health professionals and others who have an interest in health promotion.  New ideas and team members are always welcome. Team meets every 6 weeks.

Just Move It!

This free program promotes exercise at all levels of abilities by active participation in a supportive environment.  Each session includes low impact group exercise with the sharing of health tips.  The emphasis is on performing at individual abilities in a non competitive environment.  Choreographed with simple fun, yet effective movements that just about everyone can do regardless of age/shape and exercise experience. Wear comfy clothes.

We meet at 6:00 pm every Wednesday for one hour in Fellowship Hall.  This small group is sponsored by your HealthMinistry Team.

Maintenance Ministry Team

This group meets on the first and third Monday of every month at 8:00 a.m. They help maintain the church buildings and grounds. They also enjoy fellowship and food! Contact the church office if you have any questions.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The prayer shawl ministry gathers the first Saturday of every other month at 8:30 a.m. in the reference library. They knit shawls with a prayer in every stitch. The shawls are given to people in need of comfort, support and love. Anyone who would like to join us to pray over the shawls is welcome. If you knit or crochet you might want to share your talent with this ministry. We also have those willing to teach knitting and crochet to anyone wanting to learn. Call Connie Skinner for more information.

More than 300 prayer shawls have been shared with those in need of comfort since our Prayer Shawl Ministry began here at First Christian Church. Shawls have been shared both locally and sent across the globe.
 
Sack Lunch Ministry
Each Sunday of the month, some 80 volunteers give their time to either make sandwiches, sack, or deliver and serve noon meals to residents at the Rescue Mission/Hope House. To have supplies to make 150 sandwiches weekly, current donations of granola bars, individual size fruit cups and chips are always appreciated. Any donations for these items can be brought to the church between the hours of 8-3, Monday thru Friday.  
 
Support for this ministry has been awesome. Yet to continue we need commitments from volunteers willing to help. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
