    What to Expect

    When you come to First Church expect to be welcomed into a dynamic Christian community.  Expect to interact with people who love God and each other.  Expect people who aren't afraid to acknowledge they don't have it all figured out and are asking relevant questions as they seek to live more fulfilled lives.  We offer a variety of worship services, small groups, serving opportunities, and events all aimed at meeting the specific needs of people in our church and local community.

    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.
