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.
Come worship with us at First Christian Church each Sunday at 11:00 am by coming into the Sanctuary or Fellowship Hall. The wearing of masks is optional.

Advent Season 2022
Everything Is Sacred
We often sort things into groups, such as by shape or color. Sometimes we may even distinguish times and places as sacred or secular. What might it be like during Advent to see everything as sacred—our time, relationships, music, and even baby diapers?
Advent Week 1, November 27: Sacred Hope
In the busyness of the holiday season, how do we hope to get ready for Advent?
Upcoming Sunday Worship Services:
Advent Week 2, December 4: Sacred Peace
“Living in Harmony”
What if we offered the gift of harmony this year to everyone we know—and even those we don’t know?
Advent Week 3, December 11: Sacred Love
While hanging Christmas lights, magnify Christ’s light in your home, neighborhood, and the world.
Advent Week 4, December 18: Sacred Joy
Music offers a glimpse of God’s sacred joy. (Choir festival)
Christmas Eve, December 24 (6:00 p.m.)
Isaiah 9:2-7; Luke 2:1-7
On this Holy Night, we light candles to remind us of God’s Sacred Light that continues to shine in our lives.
Christmas Day, December 25, 10:00 a.m. (Note earlier time)
Something as ordinary (and extraordinary!) as the birth of a child can remind us of God’s sacred presence in the world every day.
