Welcome to First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

About Us

We are part of a Movement for Wholeness in a Fragmented World. To remind ourselves of that, we gather around the Open Table for Communion during every worship service.

  • Our Vision: First Christian  Church of Vinton, Iowa, commits  to grow in covenant with God, one another, and the community.
  • Our Mission: To meet this vision, we unite as the Body of Christ through worship, study, prayer, and fellowship.

We worship together, seek out missions together, lift each other up and support needs in our community and the world.

  • Our local outreach in the past year has included adopting families in need through our "reverse Advent" program, assisting people with their utility bills, partnering with Echo Ministries to provide fans to those suffering from the heat without the  means to purchase them, sponsoring  Habitat "Brush with Kindness" projects, and more.
  • This summer, we sent 22 people to camp at the Upper Midwest Camp and Conference Center in Newton, Iowa.
  • As a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the Upper Midwest Region, we extend our missional outreach around the world.

What's Missing?

We need YOU to walk with us, so that together we can continue to spread the good news of Christ and to be a force for implementing  His teachings and changing Hearts, one person at a time.
