Good News!!
The Children's Class has started again.    

The practice for the Christmas has begun.  All children & youth are invited to participate in Christmas play practice.


If you would feel more comfortable wearing a mask, feel free to bring one and wear it.  We will have masks available.

We will do all we possibly can to make everyone feel safe and comfortable, but be assured there will be absolutely no pressure for anyone to attend until they feel comfortable doing so.

These are strange and different times, and our services won’t quite be back to “normal”, but at least we will be able to again worship together as a church family knowing that God is there with us.


God Bless,

There have been some changes with the Bluff City Christian newsletter.  The October issue of The Bluff City Christian will be the last issue to be mailed out by bulk mail. This will save the church money on monthly and yearly fees  It will now only be published once per month.  You may still read the newsletter here on the church website ( 
on our facebook page (First Christian Church Poplar Bluff MO), a copy can be sent to your email address or a hard copy can be mailed to you. 
There will also be copies left in the narthex of the church.  If you have any questions please call the church office at 
Please continue to pray for our nation in this time of tribulation.  We have hope, even in the face of death.  We believe in love; and we will stand firm and hold up our fellow men and women in this time.  We must be the ones who stand in the gap to protect those who are most vulnerable.  We will serve those who need our help, even if we risk ourselves.  The church has always done this in the past.  If today is our turn, then today is our turn.  This is who our God is, and this is who we are.  Stand firm.  Hold fast
Please remember to wash your hands.  Thank you
