A BRIDGE FOR COMMUNITY

Let’s be honest...explaining to others who we are as a church is not always an easy task.  With a name like “Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)”, you’ve said a mouthful, but you might find people looking at you like you haven’t clarified anything; or worse they may get the wrong impression.  I remember speaking with a woman about my church – upon hearing that we were part of the Christian Church (D.O.C.) she exclaimed, “that sounds like one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches!  Are you one of those ‘bible-thumping’ churches?”  I explained that yes, we do believe in the Bible, but no, we probably are not the stereotypical ‘bible-thumping’ church that she is thinking of...read more

Young Adult Disciples

First Christian Church's newest and fastest growing small group is the Young Adult Disciples (YADs).  This group caters to a diverse demographic of people including the college, post-high school, and young professional crowd in Baton Rouge.  We meet on Sunday evenings for conversation and fellowship usually over a small meal, coffee, or ice cream.

YADs provides a space for those individuals who have graduated from our Sunday Night Youth Program, but it has also been a home away-from-home for LSU students looking for a community of faith to strengthen and support them during their college years. 

YADs also hopes to provide a place for the young professional and post-high 20 something navigating their way between their relationship with Christ as well as other aspects of life.  Life as a young adult can be overwhelming and full of a variety of challenges.  We strive to provide a real and relevant ministry that speaks to the unique experience of a young adult Christian.

If you are a young adult between 18 - 30 and are looking for a dynamic, welcoming group of peers to walk with you on your own journey of faith, contact Rev. Laura Phillips in the church office.  You can also click here to find the YADS on facebook!

We hope you will join us!

Theology on Tap is back! ToT is a great opportunity that takes God out of the confines of a church building and into the daily lives of young adults by offering a series of topics in a relaxed and fun environment. It offers young adults the opportunity to meet in a comfortable setting to explore faith, how it affects our lives and the chance to get your fill on engaging topics and fellowship with a table-full of Young Adults all at a great grill and bar location.  (All ages of young adults are invited, but are also required to follow all appropriate laws concerning alcohol consumption. We have to be safe!) Please contact Rev. Laura with any questions or concerns
