"I am resigning as Pastor of First Christian Church effective Dec. 1, 2015.This means we have one year to plan our future together. 

"I believe, in fact, I know that with God’s help FCCI does have hope for an unbelievable and prosperous future. But, we must all work together to achieve this goal and make our future with the Lord a reality."

Dr. Don previously shared his plans with the church board, administrative cabinet and during the December church congregational meeting.

Church helps high school students without regular home

The church is helping about 70 unaccompanied high school students with gift packs and some need help.

The Missions Committee has already gathered gloves, several food items and personal hygiene items and will get food coupons, insulated mugs and gift cards for QT.

Unaccompanied students do not have a regular home where they stay and move from location to location while still attending school.

This is the second year the church has supported these students picking up an effort orginally supported by community volunteer Cecil Taylor, who died.

The Missions Committee is also providing 100 books to CAPA to accompany the gifts purchased by the congregation and also will provide books to all children that attend the upcoming Christmas Capers.
