After much consideration, we unfortunately have to announce the cancellation of this year’s Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
For the past several years, members of our Church and the Greene County community have joined forces to produce as many as 1,500 free, home-cooked Thanksgiving meals for our local residents.
Due to health concerns associated with COVID-19, we feel that for the safety of our community it’s best we cancel the large format Thanksgiving dinner.
Stay tuned for announcements on how you can continue to serve God and our community through other projects.
Keep praying… keep loving God… keep loving people…and keep sharing Jesus!
Updated: Message from Lifetouch-
As you know, our team was so excited to return to churches and begin photographing congregations again.
Unfortunately, however, as the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, we have determined that it’s in the best interest of our business and our teams to put all Lifetouch Church Photography programs on hold for the time being.
I apologize, but this means that we will have to postpone your photography program.
We’re not sure when we will be able to resume photography programs – but photographing your congregation is really important to us.
When our staff returns to work and we reopen our church photography programs, we’ll be in touch with you directly to get your church back on our schedule – and the photography program back on your church’s schedule – as quickly as possible.
Stay safe and Be well.
Linton First Christian Church has resumed in-person Sunday services. We have added new procedures to ensure that everyone is staying safe and healthy. We ask that everyone review these new procedures if you plan on attending services. You can the new procedures and protocols below.
We will have a new list of protocols and procedures to follow and we also ask all attendees to complete a self-assessment to determine if you or anyone in your family has suffered from or been exposed to any symptoms of COVID-19. You will find links to both of these documents below.
We encourage all high risk individuals to continue worshipping at home with our online service. In addition to Facebook Live and YouTube, audio from our Sunday service will be available on a call-in line so you can listen on your telephone. Please view the resources below to determine if you or a loved one is considered high risk for COVID-19.
People with any of the listed conditions are encouraged to stay home by the CDC. That recommendation is likely to continue until a vaccine is available. The reason for this recommendation is simple: the medical outcome for “High Risk” people who contract Covid-19 is not good. In Indiana, 89% of the deaths from Covid-19 are in persons over 60. If you are over 65 and have any of the listed conditions, either stay home or call your doctor and discuss your prospects of continued good health.
Medical conditions that can make Covid-19 SEVERE

We look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday both in-person and online!
Linton First Christian Church will reopen on Sunday, May 10th. Please view the announcement and note from Lead Pastor, Archie Ellett, below. We encourage you to review some resources that we’ve put together to go along with the announcement on this page. We look forward to worshipping with you online and in-person on Sunday!
Hey LFCC family,
In light of Governor Holcomb’s announcement last week on reopening churches we wanted to share with you a decision that our Church leadership has made.
On Sunday May 10th, we are going to reopen our doors. Our service will be at the usual time, 10am. We want to do this in the most responsible way possible and as part of that we will do the following to meet OR exceed all recommendations from our governor.
These are just a few of the protocols we are implementing to keep you as safe as we can. Please review the ‘Return to Service Protocol and Procedures’ PDF that we are asking you to look at and help us implement so we can all do our part in opening as safely as possible.
Know that we didn’t reach this decision lightly. We’ve spent time in prayer and much discussion. We know that there may be some mixed feelings about returning to the building… so we are also praying for unity.
Psalm 133.1 NIV says: 1 How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
We are asking for unity between the churches and between our church family. Please treat each other with respect and love…. AND know that…Just because we are opening that doesn’t mean we have more faith than other churches that are keeping their doors closed… AND it doesn’t mean we don’t care about your health as much as other churches who remain closed.
At the end of the day, every church has to do what is right for them. Also, individually… you have to do what is right for you on coming to church OR not.
If you choose to come to the building, that doesn’t mean you are a better Christian than people who choose to stay at home. If you choose to stay at home, that doesn’t mean you care more about other’s health than those who choose to come to the building.
This isn’t the time to be critical about the decisions of churches OR individuals…It’s the time to be unified in reaching out to a hurting and questioning world with the Love of Jesus. SO… let’s NOT pressure people to come if they aren’t 100% comfortable.
Let’s NOT isolate those who need/want to worship online. AND let’s NOT condemn those who come to worship in the physical building. We are still a church family if we are physically present OR virtually present.
So let’s love each other regardless of our individual decisions and be the church! You have been doing an incredible job during this pandemic of being the church outside this building and that MUST continue. Remember the church isn’t about being in these walls… you are the church…you are the hands and feet of Jesus that need to be going and reaching out to the world in love.
I believe that God is using this pandemic to move in incredible ways… let’s not do anything to interrupt that…
We will continue to have a strong online presence
We will keep: Loving God, Loving People, and Sharing Jesus.
Keep checking on each other…
Keep inviting someone to come here to church OR to participate with you online.
AND we will continue to be a church family!
Stay safe… we love you… see you soon.
A quick heads up!
Linton First Christian Church will be worshiping online again this coming Sunday, April 5th!
Remember, inviting a friend to church and spreading God’s love has never been easier. No awkward conversations necessary, just share this post!
You can access the live stream on YouTube or Facebook using the links below. See you Sunday!

Hey LFCC family,
In light of recent events concerning the Coronavirus we wanted to update you about some decisions we’ve made as a Church leadership.
Upon much prayer and deliberation, as of now, we are planning on proceeding with regularly scheduled services (including children’s programming) on Sunday, March 15th, 2020 (Sunday School at 8:30am, Sunday Gathering at 10:00am). Know that this is an ever-evolving situation and we will do our best to stay on top of it.
We are doing all we can to ensure that our facility is as safe as possible for our Church family. Counters, door handles, and other high-use items have been cleaned and disinfected numerous times.
In and effort to minimize contact, we will make the following alterations to our service:
We are taking every precaution we can to minimize risk to anyone and you can help with that. We need you to use good judgment to protect yourself and others.
Please do not feel bad if you feel that you need to stay home. We want to be as safe as possible so we are asking everyone to err on the side of caution and worship with us online if you are the least bit uncertain.
If you are worshipping with us online, you can find the livestream at the following link – http://www.peopletogod.com/lfcc-livestream/ or visit the LFCC YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgDXA2dRMny6yyHjw22Umsg
Also, if you are worshipping online we encourage you to prepare communion and partake with us as a family during the service and don’t forget that you can give as part of your worship online at https://pushpay.com/g/peopletogod OR on the Linton First Christian Church app for iPhone or Android.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We are trying to figure this out like everyone else, so please be flexible, be faithful, and stay tuned as things can change very quickly.
Don’t forget to be in prayer. Peter said in 1 Peter 3.12 12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers.
God is hearing our prayers so please keep them coming.
God has been moving in mighty ways and we believe He will continue to move in mighty ways… This WILL NOT stop what HE is doing. Nothing will ever stop what God wants to accomplish! Our methods might have to change BUT the message NEVER WILL… and it must go out!
We trust God will protect us as His children BUT we will take every precaution we need to take.
Keep praying… love God… love people… share Jesus and be safe. We love you and will see you all soon.
Elders of Linton First Christian Church
Easter is quickly approaching and once again, we would like for you to consider joining us as we “Forget the Frock”.
For the past few years, LFCC has participated in Forget the Frock. This is a movement started by a woman, Emily Fox, who loves Jesus and answered His call to do SOMETHING. That something was the decision to forgo all the frilly frock (dresses, suits, ties) that accompanied Easter attire and purchase a t-shirt that actually served a PURPOSE! This year we have chosen Open Arms Ministries as our ministry with a purpose! If you would like to participate by ordering a shirt, please click HERE to fill out the form or contact Michelle Ellett for more information. Shirts are $20 each. All orders must be received by March 16, 2020. Thanks for supporting a great ministry!!
