Here is a list of teams that are part of First Christian Church of Chicago’s process to help people grow together in living out their faith:

 

Hospitality – Team Leader: Nancy Ludes

Help people linger and get connected with one another, meet guests, and begin developing friendships, as you serve as host for time of hospitality with punch, coffee, and cookies following Worship Celebration.

 

Connection Leaders – Team Leader: Steven Chapman

Help people grow in their faith by leading a Connection Group. Sunday Connection Groups help people to discuss and apply that Sunday’s Bible teaching, while midweek Connection Groups might form around a select theme or group, such as young marrieds or “single again” adults. All groups serve as an environment for people to share the stories of their spiritual walk together, and pray, encourage and support each other in it.

Resources are available for those interested in leading groups.

 

Student Connection Leaders – Team Leader: Gincy Hartin

Help students in grades Pre-K through 12 engage in faith-building activities, lessons, and discussions by leading one of the Connection Groups for students.

 

 

Fellowship Events – Team Leaders: Jacqueline Porter

 Help members get connected further by planning and providing support service for all-church fellowship events

.

Ladies’ Ministry – Team Leaders: Portia Brock, Jennifer Jones, Yvette Smith, Samantha Lones, Barbara BeDell

Help women of the church get to know each other in a weekly Bible study, quarterly breakfast gathering, and occasional social environment that lets you build relationships with other women who can help you along in the journey called Christian living..

 

Men’s Ministry – Team Leaders: Jerrold Brock and Steven Chapman

Help men connect and grow into Christlike followers through monthly breakfasts and periodic events.
 
American Heritage Girls – Team Leader: Dionna Bickham
