What to Expect

Ottawa First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Eastern Kansas was established on September 30, 1869.

In 1887 the First Christian Church was built on a lot at 314 S. Cedar. After this building was flooded in the great flood of July 1951, they moved to and bought the Old Garfield School and slowly built the facility currently being used. The current building was dedicated on May 3, 1964. The old Garfield School was demolished on July 13th, 1964.

Our puppet team is a strong ministry which has given our young adults a ministry that has helped bring a lot of spiritual joy and laughter during our worship services and gives anybody who is interested an opportunity to serve God through the puppets. They further our mission from FCC by performing in other congregations in the area and sharing the good news of God’s love through the puppets. They practice every Sunday Morning during Sunday School. If you feel called to participate in the puppet ministry team, contact the church to get Cathy or Wayne Duderstadt’s phone number.
