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 with about 100 in attendance on any given Sunday morning. Most people who attend FCCT 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.


Starting at 9:30am we offer Sunday school classes for adults and youth alike, as well as childcare for younger children. All classes provide age appropriate activities and instruction, and ends at 10:15am.

Our contemporary worship begins at 10:30am and includes the following:


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

  • Communion and Offering: each Sunday we have the opportunity to take Communion as well as the giving of tithes and offerings

  • Contemporary worship music: 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.

  • Invitation: at the close of our service the Elders (leaders) are available to meet with you. Do you need prayer? Do you want to know more about FCCT or becoming a Christian? This is the time where the Elders can answer any questions you may have.


Our service ends around 11:45 but lots of folks like to stick around and visit. FCCT is a great place to meet friendly people and we invite you to join us.


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.
