​​​​​​​​​​First Christian Church of Redding 

Thursday Bible Study Group

On Thursdays at noon, Rev. Ellis Martin leads a study group currently studying the life of Jesus in which all are welcome. It is an interactive group filled with solid scholarly background on the text as well as an opportunity to engage the biblical author, and Ellis, in some lively conversations. Bring your lunch, if you like, and join in the fellowship.

Children’s Sunday School & Vacation Bible School (3 yrs-5th Grade)

During the program year, we offer an intergenerational Sunday School class at 9:30 am for children ages 3 years through 5th grade complete with lessons, crafts, activities and often music. In the summer, we feature a week-long Vacation Bible School that participants consistently look forward to. Because of the solid favorable reputation we have built in the community for this event, we take registrations in order not to overbook as 50 students is our facility limit.



Meeting the needs of our varied congregation is a priority, therefore, we seek to offer different groups, some of which meet consistently and others that meet sporadically through the year. Our adult study groups are designed to strengthen and expand our faith journey as we seek to be followers of Christ.  From Bible to religious book studies, groups are being formed on a regular basis and all are welcome. Literary, contextual, and historical background enrich our understandings. Support and nurture groups add to the fellowship and compassion that is a part of our church life. We hope you will find a place that meets your needs.
