Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. Here at First Christian Church, we believe that commission calls us to be good news to all the world.  It begins in our own community, and spreads to all the world.  Disciples at First Christian Church are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as helping with routine maintenance in our facility, to preparing the church bulletins, to feeding the hungry on a weekly basis, to building houses in El Salvador.

Welcome Table Ministry – The Need is Great

The need is great and we are moving to meet that need.

Through our Welcome Table Ministry, we provide sack lunches to the less fortunate in Topeka.  Each week we provide 150 sack lunches that each contain a sandwich, a bag of chips, and a piece of fruit.  On Sunday we have a team that assembles the lunches and packs them into coolers for distribution that day.  We gather in the kitchen at 8:00 am to assemble the lunches. 4 to 6  volunteers leave the church around 11:00 am and return to the church around 12:45 pm.  We do use our church van to transport the lunches and volunteers.

We always welcome you to respond to God’s call on your life.  We invite you to contribute lunch items, help pack the lunches, or sign up to drive/distribute the lunches.

El Salvador Mission

We are building houses and providing wellness medical clinics!  Puente Azul is a small, rural community located near Sonsonate, in the Department of Sonsonate, El Salvador.  We’ve been working with this community in partnership since 2012.  The members of the Puente Azul community self-identified the mission priorities and as their partners we seek to help them meet those priorities.  We are currently exploring ways that we can expand the housing project in order to better meet this great need in the community.  Check out the videos from two of our recent trips.



Sunday Servants

Our life together is a full-body work out, involving everyone. Each Sunday lots of opportunities exist to serve God by welcoming others to worship, helping people find seats, answering questions at the Welcome Center, lending directions, providing for and helping serve at Fellowship Time from 9:50-10:10, unlocking and locking doors, running the sound board or light board or worship slides, and serving communion.  The Sunday Servants ministry is integral to our life together.
