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.

Lent Series - Holy Vessels
We are each a holy vessel, filled with God’s Spirit, but sometimes our lives feel shattered and fragmented, like glass fractured into pieces. As we journey through Lent on our way to Easter, we will encounter those who met Jesus and longed for healing. As we hope for recovery during this season, may we discover wholeness in our fragmented pieces of life.
February 28 (Lent 2) - “Seeking Healing”
Luke 7:1-10 (Matthew 8:5-13)
God seeks us as a Beachcomber searches for beautiful pieces of glass, and God invites us to search for healing.
Upcoming Sunday Worship Services:
March 7 (Lent 3) - “Believing Healing”
Those finding beach glass often strive to discern the origins of the glass, curious about the story of its origin. We may be curious about the origins of our illness, and sometimes it’s hard to believe we will find wholeness.
March 14 (Lent 4) - “Healing Mosaics”
Luke 8:40-56 (Matthew 9:18-26)
Broken glass can be turned into beautiful mosaics, and when Jesus encountered numerous people with illness, he offered a mosaic of healing. How might our brokenness turn into something beautiful?
March 21 (Lent 5) - “Earthly Healing”
Luke 9:57-62 (Matthew 8:18-27)
Not only do we experience illness, but even our planet seems ill at times. If Jesus can calm the storms, how do we help him heal the earth?
March 28 (Palm Sunday) - “Healing Parades”
Luke 19:29-40 (and refer to Luke 5:17-26)
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem, the crowds longed for healing. Never did they imagine how wholeness would enter their lives.
April 4 (Easter) - “Ultimate Healing”
No matter what illness impacts our lives, and even if we don’t survive, resurrection brings the hope of wholeness—now and later!
