Welcome to First Christian Church

Please, come as you are. 

We wholeheartedly welcome members of the Central City community and surrounding areas to join us in song, service, worship and prayer with a little western flare at First Christian Church. Come and be a part of this thriving and hope-filled congregation. We are an independent Christian church, part of the restoration movement. 

Meet our Pastor


Curt Cooper

Hello, my name is Curt Cooper and I have been blessed to be the Minister here at First Christian Church in Central City Nebraska.  I attended Chadron State College for four years and in 2011 received my Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministry from Vision International College Australia.
I began my ministry here at FCC in September of 2011.  My wife Joyce and I have three grown children who are all married and have their own families.  We have five beautiful grandchildren so far and enjoy spending time with them when ever we can. 
Joyce and I have been married for 37 years and enjoy spending time to gether traveling when we can and serving those around us.  I also enjoy writing and reciting cowboy poetry and storytelling.  This platform has opened up many opportunities for not only me but for FCC to minister to the unchurched.
