Our Joy:

Live a Life of serving

At First Church, we believe life is a long-term mission trip, and every day is a short-term mission opportunity. God's word makes it clear that it's our job to share the love of Christ with people we see every day, whether we're in our local community, or halfway across the world. And this mission not only impacts those we serve, but it is a pathway to spiritual transformation in our own lives. 

Serving in the various opportunities that First Church provides helps us to meet our mission of connecting people to Jesus Christ, growing as disciples, and relieving suffering in our world.

There are so many ways to serve locally through First, as well as getting involved in the community and beyond. We want to empower you to do the work God has called you to. Get involved today!
