FCC Hosts Central Academy

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic the Middletown City Schools were closed by order of the Governor. This left many end of year traditions up in the air for schools.

Staff and members of T.E.A.M. Parent Organization contacted FCC about hosting a drive in retirement party as well as 6th grade graduation. We were excited to be able to accommodate both events. This created an opportunity for some important end of year traditions to be observed, as well as honoring the governors order for schools to be shut down.

This provided an opportunity for the Staff of Central Academy to celebrate the retirement of two teachers. A much deserved celebration, even considering the unusual ending to the school year.

This also allowed the 6th grade class to be able to have a drive through and see their teachers one last time, and receive their certificate as they finish there time at Central Academy.

This is a community church supporting it’s neighbors, this is a small part of being a mission oriented Church.

COVID-19 Update

All Activities at First Christian Church will be cancelled until further notice.

Should you have pastoral needs, please contact Pastor Connor or Pastor Jeff.
