Main Street Christian Church

Main Street Christian Church continues its spiritual growth series “Not a Fan” with sermons, a group experience and daily devotional readings. The six-week series by bestselling author Kyle Idleman explores through the differences between a relationship with Jesus Christ that has the description of a fan and that of a committed follower. This Sunday’s message, week 2, “The Open Invitation” will be presented by Director of Youth Zach Dorrel at both the 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. service.

At 7 p.m. Friday evening, May 30, Main Street Christian Church will host organist Martin Ellis for a rededication concert. Mr. Ellis is the organist for North United Methodist Church, Indianapolis, a frequent guest with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, and an arranger and keyboard accompanist for the world renown Indianapolis Children’s Choir.
