Missions & Service
First Church is a community of people feeding bodies and souls. We love God, and our neighbors and believe that all our lives are transformed when we live as Christ in the world.
We are people seeking to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ and to provide a supportive environment directed by the Holy Spirit. Members encourage each other in their call to transform the world in Jesus’ name.
Adult Interest Groups
Whether it revolves around food, meditation, activities, gender, or books, there's bound to be a group to suit your interest. And if there isn't, the door is always open for hatching a new one!
We have fun gathering together for picnics, golf tournaments, plays, concerts, dinners, retreats, movies and fellowship groups to celebrate life together and to invite others into exciting Christian community.

The Ministry of Music, through its adult, children’s, and youth choirs, and the Water’s Edge music team, is an integral part of the worship and discipleship ministry of First Church.
