Important Covid -19 announcement


Given our continued desire to follow the requests of our governing authorities and to remain compassionate toward those who are at risk for serious illness, we have chosen the following steps.


We will offer our Sunday Worship service via live stream on First Christian Assembly’s Facebook page - Please gather your family together and check-in to our Facebook page by 11:00 AM Sunday morning to view the live stream. We will conduct our normal Worship Service including music, announcements and a Bible message. Only the needed personnel to produce the live stream will need to be present.

Also, we encourage you to share our Facebook page with family and friends. This will be a great way to invite them to join us as we Worship together.


Children’s Sunday School – Meg is inviting all parents and guardians to go online and        visit the Superbook Academy Website. This is the curriculum that the children use each Sunday. Use the following link (


Superbook Academy is providing free access to all courses, lessons, activities, and videos to your church family to participate in a new form of Sunday School at home!

Meg will be providing more information regarding how to use this series.


In addition, please remember to;


Check on your family, neighbors, friends and church family. Don’t let a day go by without reaching out to one another and seeing if there is any way that you can help them during this time.


Be patient with us as we navigate the days ahead. These are uncharted waters. We need your prayers, patience, and support as we prayerfully and carefully consider all that is in front of us.


Continue to check the Church Website and Facebook page for additional information.

Also, if you haven’t done so already, please download the church App This is a great way for us to communicate and stay in touch.


Please contact our office at The Philadelphia Access Center (215) 389-1985 If you or anyone that you know needs help during this stressful time.


Above all do not give in to the fear and hysteria – “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” [2Ti 1:7 KJV].

Let us continue to communicate to one another, pray for each other, and be faithful to embrace what opportunities have been given to us to continue hearing the Word and sharing the gospel.




First Christian Assembly

Whether you are planning on visiting First Christian Assembly, or you are just hoping to learn more about our fellowship, we welcome you!

At each of our Worship services and Bible studies, we emphasize praise and worship and above all, Biblical instruction.

Praise and Worship

The focus of the Worship Ministry is God Himself. The ministry of worship and praise is intended to draw our hearts into an attitude of joyful praise and reflection upon our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Biblical Instruction

At First Christian Assembly, we understand that the Word of God is living and powerful (Hebrews 4:12) and we commit the majority of each of our services to rightly dividing the Word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

Whether you attend our Bible studies or Worship services, you will find that we preach and teach through the Scriptures as we strive to declare the full counsel of the Word of God (Acts 20:27).

By exploring the Bible in this manner, our hope is to increase your appetite to study the Word, and discover the life changing truths that are contained within the Scriptures!


Upon visiting us at First Christian Assembly or exploring our website you will discover that in addition to our Worship Services and Bible Studies, we offer many other ministry services. The purpose of these ministries is to help people come to salvation in, or to grow in, their faith in Jesus.

We hope that you will be able to join us and we look forward to meeting with you.
