    for kids

    The Children’s and Youth Ministry Teams at First Church are dedicated to loving and encouraging children on their journey as they discover God’s truths in relevant, age-appropriate ways. Our goal is that children and youth will learn how the Scriptures apply to their lives, laying the foundation for embracing God’s story and understanding how their story fits into His.  For more information on Children's Ministry contact Lisa Gonzales.  For more information on Youth Ministry contact Chris Linderman.

History

First Church History

The Church we are today has been shaped by over forty years of service. The people of First Church have established a tradition of passionately serving God and we welcome anyone who seeks to join with us. Our mission is to “make disciples who make disciples”; a mission we have diligently worked toward since our beginning in January of 1969. It started when ten people gathered to form Crocker Memorial Methodist Church, the first organized church in the seven year old city of Coral Springs. They held their first service Easter Sunday of the same year with 20 members. Over time, First Church and the city of Coral Springs grew tremendously. By 1979, the membership was over 600 and by 1990 the membership was a little under 1,000. That growth was reflected in completion of the sanctuary in 1991, as well as the founding of Bethlehem Revisited. The Church continued to grow into the 2000s, manifested by the construction of the Faith Building in 2007 to house our thriving Youth and Children’s ministries.
