Daily Prayer Service
Noblesville First offers an online 30-minute daily prayer service via Facebook livestream. If you are in need of prayer or you want to pray for someone else or just want to listen to prayer, please join us!
We are a group of ordinary people, extraordinarily loved by God, including YOU. We are also interested in what time of the day works best for you to pray.
2:30pm - 3:00pm
COVID-19 update ... In-person Dinner's on Us weekly service is still on hold. We have added a weekly food pick up on Thursdays 2:30-3pm at Door 6 at the west end of the church. Attendees pick up frozen Chik-Fil-A, wonderful organic produce and eggs from Teter Farm, day-old Panera breads, and a cart is loaded with canned/ boxed grocery items and frequent surprises. We are also sharing the bounty of frozen Chick-Fil-A with the lunch program at Sheridan Methodist Church and other food pantries. Additionally, we have arranged for Second Helpings to deliver 30 lunches to the senior apartments at Noble Manor apartments next door each Thursday.
We stock the weekly food cart from the generous donations that our congregation made in the food drive in late 2020. We continue to take food donations in the baskets outside the Sanctuary and Celebration Hall.
With over 27,000 food insecure people in Hamilton County, Dinner's On Us is a program that offers us each an opportunity to follow Jesus’s command to “feed my sheep.” Noblesville First has been involved in serving this free weekly community dinner for over 10 years, typically welcoming 30-40 people each week. Some of the guests are retired, on fixed incomes, and appreciate the chance to visit with others. Some single parents appreciate the weekly meal they don’t have to pay for. Some guests just like to have a night off from cooking and enjoy the fellowship. Our church looks forward to starting this in-person dinner again when safe conditions can be assured.

Nine-year old Linkin Eger is no stranger to the up-hill battle with cancer. At just two years old, he was diagnosed with a tumor on his brain. Surgery removed most of the tumor, but the cancer would return five years later. Linkin underwent chemotherapy treatment at the age of 7, every week for one year. Along with his treatment, Linkin needed blood transfusions because he was very anemic. He also required several platelet transfusions. The donors who provided those precious gifts have helped Linkin to thrive. CLICK HERE to read more of Linkin's story and others who have benefited from a life-saving gift of blood.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Versiti Blood Center of Indiana is experiencing a critical need for blood donors. Maintaining a safe blood supply is crucial to the well-being of patients in our community.
