A Heartfelt Thank You

Dear FCC, it is so hard to lose my best friend, Richard. He had several cardiac arrests. He never woke up, didn’t know what had happened to him and did not suffer. He peacefully went to be with our Lord.

Update from Rev. Jake M. Caldwell

Dear Friends,

I'm sure by now you have heard that Governor Larry Hogan has mandated the closure of all non-essential businesses in Maryland. The First Christian Church office will be closed beginning on Tuesday, March 24th. I wanted to make you aware of how this will impact some vital functions of the congregation until we are able to return to normal operations.

Take what you need. Leave what you can.

Pastoral Letter from Rev. Jake Caldwell

Dear Friends,

I was reminded this week of some wise and timely words a three-year-old uttered to me, her anxious father. Seven years ago, this week, I was fast asleep one night.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

March 12, 2020

On March 12, Governor Larry Hogan instituted several state-wide measures to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus, including a two-week closure of schools and a ban on gatherings of 250 people. In response, the leadership of First Christian Church has decided to cancel all church related activities and all non-church functions scheduled on church property, including worship, from Friday March 13th through Saturday March 28th. We will evaluate the potential to hold worship on Sunday March 29th as public officials continue to release additional details about the Coronavirus pandemic and issue further guidance.
