Connecting people to a faith community where they can develop a relationship with God. 


Helping people intentionally grow in their faith. 


Sending people to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community and the world.



First Church's vision for our Family Ministries is "Every day, in every way, connecting children, youth, and families to Christ." Learn more about the ways we are living out that vision for our First Church Families:



Each Sunday morning we offer programs for children ages 3 through 5th grade.

During the school year on Wednesday nights, we have children's program that helps our kids learn about God through Scripture memory and Bible lessons.



Each Sunday we encourage our students to worship with their families.

On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month our 5th - 12th are invited to an evening of food, fun, fellowship, and learning. This is where they receive relevant teaching, mentorship from caring adults and have fun growing in their faith. Check out our Upcoming Events page to see the next youth events. 




There are many opportunities at First Church for Adults to grow in their faith, and to deepen their relationships with God and others.
