Thank you for visiting our website!




We are so happy that you have found our home on the web.  We pray that if you are not already a member or haven't yet visited Carey1st, you will give us the opportunity to welcome you to our place of worship and make you feel right at home here in Childress, Texas.

Loving God, Loving People and Making Disciples.  That is what we are about at Carey1st.  God has recently blessed us with new leadership and a fresh new vision for what he has for us to accomplish in our City and the area around us.  If you haven't been out to see us in a while, come see what God is doing.  We are just a six minute drive north of town past TXDOT  on 287 and left on Loop 328.  Our state of the art multi-purpose facility has recently received some wonderful technical upgrades and enhancements for worship.  A nursery and pre-school is officially in place again and our life groups (Sunday School) are expanding and growing along with our weekly worship participation.

Carey1st is a real family of like-minded believers in Jesus Christ and we are anxious to make your whole family part of our family. We have a wide range of ministries that are directed at every age, giving everyone the opportunity to grow and serve our Lord.

Please get in contact with us and let us help you with any questions you might have about our church or especially how you might better know and relate to our Lord that loves you so very much.
