First Church has a lot of ministries for our members and visitors of all ages to get involved with. We are a church that sees the importance of community and service, and we welcome those in the community, our members, and our visitors to join us.
We offer the following Ministries:
Sunday Early Morning Service – Join us on Sunday Mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 am for service, followed by Coffee and light refreshments. Our Sunday Morning service is a beautiful service of meaningful liturgy, relevant messages, and talented musicianship from our Choirs, Organist, and those within our congregation.
NEW !! Sunday Late Morning Service – During the summer months, beginning June 2, we will offer a contemporary style worship service in Fellowship Hall. The service will start at 11:45 AM. The start time is designed to appeal to later risers and to not interfere with First Fellowship. The move to Fellowship Hall will take advantage of the stage area renovations and allow us to move the sound system and drums from the chapel.
Sunday Evening Service – Note: This will be moved to 11:45 am during the summer. Each Sunday Evening from 5:30-6:15 pm -We recognize the needs of those in our community who cannot come to our Sunday Morning service for whatever reason, and we also to offer a service to our community that was more intimate and less formal. This is a service that incorporates guitar, piano, and other instruments for our music, a service with a meaningful and down-to-earth feel message, and a service that welcomes discussion. Please join us for this unique service.
Sunday School Classes – Join us after every Sunday morning service for Sunday School classes for ALL ages from September through May. Whether you are 3, or 93, there is a place for you! Come after the early Sunday morning service (or before the late Sunday morning service) to learn more about God, and our faith as you sit next to others who are all on the same journey of faith together.
Music Groups – Visit our Music Ministry page to learn more about the wonderful musical groups that she and the church have to offer.
Community Dinners – Third Thursday of EVERY month at 5:30 pm. Join us for dinner free of charge, and consider volunteering your time in helping prepare the food and evening.
YouthWorx – Grades 7 – 12 – Our Youth Group program integrates lessons, games, and activities to instill a lasting faith in a welcoming community of Students, Youth Leaders, and loving volunteers.
College and Career – Ages 18 – 23 – After high school, some churches do not have any special programs to offer, but we at First Church, recognize the importance of meeting together and growing in faith with those of similar age, as well as those older or younger than yourself. Contact Jon Bauman, Director of Youth & Young Adults, about our program designed for post-High School Young Adults.
Young Adult Group – Age 22+ – Ask Jon about our Young Adult Group for those in the early twenties, late thirties, early forties, and any who feel at home with an active group going hiking, having cookouts, and other activities.
