In the year 1870, the First Christian Church of Lathrop, Missouri became a reality. The need had been fulfilled to establish a mission of love dedicated to our Lord Jesus Christ.
The beautiful sanctuary, built in 1916, houses a rare pipe organ that fills the church with its music each Sunday. The fellowship hall and classrooms were added in 2004. Church members share a spirit of compassion and love that reaches into the Lathrop community and surrounding areas.
The overall program of First Christian is founded upon a deep caring and concern for all people. Our purpose is to reach all people through the power of the Holy Spirit given to us by Jesus Christ. Our ministries and programs are people oriented, desiring to meet the need of people of all ages.
We invite you to come and share with us. Our prayer is that you will consider becoming one of us with your membership and active participation in the life of our church. Sharing your gifts and talents will make us a stronger church.
