Welcome to the Harrisburg First Church of the Nazarene! Visitors to our church are sure to find a warm welcome among our people. We are a church that is committed to Biblical preaching and teaching in the Nazarene holiness tradition. We encourage all to receive Jesus as Lord of their lives and to grow in their relationship with Him.

Here at Harrisburg we believe that church should be a place where all who come are given the freedom to worship and ecounter the living God. Our worship service is a blend of contemporary choruses and traditional hymns set in a service where the Holy Spirit moves among the congregation. At our altars, many have found a new and deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Welcome to 2005! We are trusting God to make the next year better than ever for our church! Be sure to be a part of what is happening! Our new Sunday School Classes are doing well in our children's department as we are seeing new children in attendance nearly every week! Don't miss out on Sunday School at our new evening hour! Our senior pot-luck has been featuring guest speakers that discuss issues relative to the lives of senior citizens. These include; a visit by John Odell, President of the Saline County Historical Society, who discussed the history of the Poor House and musuem, State Police Officer J.D. Murphy who spoke about mnay subjects including safety issues for seniors and drug related topics, Dr. Brian Hester who shared some significant information about what he does as a chiropractor and the emphasis on holistic health, and Karen Cathey from the University of Illinois Home Extension program who spoke about the Underground Railroad and how secret messages were placed in quilt patterns to lead escaped slaves to freedom. We look forward to having more wonderful and informative guest speakers in the future!

Harrisburg First is a church where you can find a place to serve and minister to others. Please visit our website often as we will post new ministries, events, and short term small groups in the near future.
