MINISTRIES

Below we have a list of all of the ministries that we offer here at First Church for you to connect. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when joining one of our ministry programs. We believe that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool when growing to be more like Jesus. The encouragment of others is a powerful thing.
