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 grades 4-12 discuss and apply Sunday messages, by leading one of the Connection Groups for students.
Children’s Class Teachers – Team Leader: Gincy Hartin
Help students 3rd grade and younger develop basic knowledge of God’s love for them in a more traditional Bible School Class environment.
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
