First Christian Church building

This Sunday in Worship 

Sunday, October 24, 2021

on Zoom and In-Person



Adult Church School at 9:00am   |   Worship Service at 10:30am   |   Youth Sunday School at 11:35am


The 9:00am Adult Sunday School will resume hybrid style on Sunday, October 31.  This means you may attend online via zoom OR at church in the Parlor.


As part of our stewardship focus this month, we celebrate the ministry of First Christian Church, affirm our Disciples identity and mission, and lift up our connection to the Tucson community. Our stewardship team will invite us to continue supporting our call to Seek, Love, and Serve into the new year through our gifts and resources.

“We are the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a movement for Wholeness in a fragmented world.”


Activities for All


Hymns we’re singing this week:

Opening: #487 “Help Us Accept Each Other” (v. 1, 3, 4)
Communion: #540 “O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go” (v. 1, 2, 3)
Closing Song: “Ever”


Reminders About Zoom Worship:

  • Connect by 10:20am and make sure you are muted when the service begins. Having everyone connected early (even if you are not present on screen yet) helps us help you with any technical problems and begin our livestream and recording of the service without background noise.
  • Prayer Concerns: Email your prayer concerns to Pastor Ailsa this week or type them in the Zoom chat when you log in.
  • Communion: Get your bread and cup ready for communion prior to service.
