Who We Are

First Christian Church is located in the beautiful and eclectic neighborhood of Dilworth in Charlotte, North Carolina. A home to musicians, artists, thinkers, and refugees, this church on the corner of East Blvd. and Dilworth Road, East seeks to live out Jesus' calling to love the outcast, the newcomer, and the powerless. This is a church where God's love really shines--welcoming people often rejected by other faith communities. Even your struggles are welcome here. First Christian Church is also a home to the Dilworth Soup Kitchen, serving a delicious free lunch every Monday from 11:30am-12:30pm.

We worship at 11 am on Sundays, with Bible Study for all ages at 9:45 am. Every Sunday, communion is served. Children's Church and Nursery available as well. Join us!
