What life have you, if you have not life together? 

 

  

There is not life that is not in community.

 

 

  

  

And no community not lived in praise of GOD.

Music

First Christian Church has a distinguished music program that reaches back to the founding of the congregation in the 1870's. The excellent acoustics of our sanctuary, the lightorgan at FCC-filled stained glass and our beautiful tracker Létourneau organ create an inspiring space to worship our Creator each Sunday and throughout the week.

In keeping with the church's belief about inclusion, ALL people are welcome to join the Music Ministry. Following the example of Christ, we seek volunteers of all abilities who desire to improve their musical gifts over time. 

The folks that make up the music department are an exceptional group of believers who enjoy fellowship as much as music. They are very dedicated to exceptional attendance, musical excellence and expanding their horizons. The music program at First Christian Colorado Springs has a rich tradition. In addition, you will be well-fed with this group!
