What Should I Expect?


Thanks for visiting the First Christian Church of Tempe (FCCT) website! Here is an idea of what you can expect when you visit our church.

FCCT is a small church typically with about 100 in attendance previously on any given Sunday morning. But like other churches things have changed as a result of the pandemic we are currently experiencing. We have adjusted the times and days of our events and now also offer online resources for our services. For those who attend our recently restarted in-person services we tend to dress casually, however some folks wear more formal attire such as a dress, or shirt and tie. FCCT is full of friendly people in a relaxed environment.

Our main in-person services are now on Saturday.  4-4:45pm we offer an Adult Bible Study class. We typically also have children and youth specific classes but these classes are currently postponed. Our contemporary worship for all ages begins at 5:00pm and includes the following:

  • Contemporary Worship: The worship band typically consists of guitars, bass, keyboard and drums and leads in the singing of modern worship songs and some traditional hymns in a contemporary style.

  • Communion: Pre-made and sealed communion is available to pick up in the foyer prior to service. During service we will have a communion message and a time of reflection when we can take communion.

  • Preaching from the Bible: Relevant messages to apply to daily living, grounded in the Word of God.

  • Offering: There is a locked box at the main entrance to the sanctuary for checks or cash. Online giving is also available. 

Our service ends around 6:15pm but folks like to stick around and visit. FCCT is a great place to meet friendly people and we invite you to join us. We also record our Saturday services and upload them to our Facebook page on Sunday mornings. We hope you stop by!


We are a non-denominational Christian church located in Tempe near the ASU main campus. All are welcome to join us and learn about the word of Christ and how that word can help us be fruitful in our lives and community.
