Children’s and Youth Ministries
Here at First Christian Church of Allen, we believe that the youth are not only the future of the church, we feel they are the present. We have very active youth programs such as:
- Wonderful Wednesdays – An activity during the summer months where the youth go to local theme parks and museums.
- Even Youth – Which is the Sunday youth meeting where the youth have fun and learn more about God.
- Sunday School – We have classes for all ages of youth from pre-school to high-school.
- Youth Sunday – Where the youth lead the morning worship service including the sermon.
- Complete Camping Ministry, through the North Texas Area of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
If you are seeking a "higher" education (thought provoking pun intended), then look no further. People of all ages, from toddler to adult are invited to join us each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Youth classes are arranged by age groups, and nursery care is provided for newborns to age two. Adults enjoy their own class, an opportunity to apply the lessons of the Bible to our everyday lives.

Disciples Men Fellowship
The men of the church gather for Christian Fellowship on the second Saturday of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. to share a breakfast prepared by one of the men. A topic is introduced by one of the men at each meeting, and a reflective discussion is a key part of each breakfast gathering. Disciples Men Fellowship also serves the church through various projects.
