First Christian Church presents.....

"The Story." The introduction will be October 4th and 5th with book delivery following the worship. "The Beginning" will take place in worship October 11th and 12th. While it's true that each week is self-contained and does not depend on the other, so that you won't be lost if you have to miss a week or two, why would you? This is the most exciting thing we've done in a long time AND by the end of THE STORY, you'll have a much better understanding of the Bible.

Do you love college football? You are invited to join us every Sunday at The River in September for a series that includes football analogies about faith called “The Game Plan”. The series answers the question, “Do you have a plan for your life?” Each Sunday you attend, your name will be put into a drawing for 2 KU vs. KState Football tickets. On Sunday, September 28 we will be drawing for the football tickets, and hosting a FREE Tailgate Party after the service, complete with every known tailgate food you can think of. And, don’t miss our own weekly version of RSPN (River Sports Network) 10 minutes before each service. Invite your friends. Bring your family. And feel free to wear your favorite football gear every Sunday.
There will be NO All You Can Eat Biscuits and Gravy for the month of September due to Fall Festival. We will resume in October. We are also looking for volunteers to help with the once a month breakfast. If you are interested please contact the Clearwater Senior Community Center at 620-584-2332 or email
