First Christian Church - Mishawaka, Indiana
Where the Positive Power of Christ
First Christian Church of Mishawaka strives to fulfill a simple goal:
We want to be the place where ‘The Positive Power of Jesus Christ can change people’s lives.'
We encourage those whose lives have been changed to go into our surrounding communities and have a positive effect on people who need the human touch of Jesus Christ today. The life of Jesus Christ has done more to promote positive change for our world for the better than any other person who has ever lived.
As members of the Christian Church we are called ‘Disciples of Christ’ – followers of this historical figure, the Son of the Living God and tasked to carry on His mission: Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself.
Worship with us each Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
First Christian is definitely not the biggest church in the Michiana community. We may not have every ‘bell and whistle’ known to man, but at First Christian Church lives are changed by Jesus Christ and hope is available to people living in a world where sometimes there is no hope.
Programs for youth are the focal point of our church, and yet we strive to never forget the needs of seniors.
If you are looking for a place to find: faith, hope and love while striving to live a better life – come home, to First Christian Church in Mishawaka.

Easter Season Series
Dare to Dance Again
“Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” — Psalm 30:5b
As Easter people, we are called to dance our dances of freedom for all the world to see–even and perhaps especially in times of great difficulty. Dances of hope. Dances of justice. Dances of love. During this season, post-resurrection stories point to the joy of living in the beloved community and extending that fellowship through our witness as we dare to dance again!
May 16 - Ascension Sunday
“Dancing with the Stars”
Jesus invites us to find a dancing partner, reminding us we’re never dancing alone.
Sometimes we may feel unable to dance, but God’s Spirit nudges us onto the dance floor.
Upcoming Sunday Worship Services:
May 23 - Pentecost
“Spirit Poured Out: Dare to Dance Again”
Ezekiel 37:1-14; Acts 2:1-21
Ezekiel has a vision of a valley full of bones receiving life, breath, sinew and flesh after encountering the word of God. When they arise, they receive Spirit and they dance! As Easter people, we celebrate the Spirit that continues to give life and breath to our dry bones. We dare to dance in the face of fear, in the face of cynicism, in the face of despair. We dare to dance “as long as we live” for we, like the early Christians, are the recipients of the Spirit of God which intercedes even when we think we can’t make it to the dance floor. In hope we are saved!
