First Church is dedicated to seeing transformation in Christ, not just in our church, but in our community and beyond. We believe that faith inspires action, and we seek to be involved in our community, listening to needs, building relationships, and being a force of change towards equity, justice, and love of neighbor.
First Church is involved in the community in a number of ways which are fully open to all those who wish to participate or partner.
First Church has robust College, Children, and Youth Ministries.
First Church is home to First Nursery School.
First Church houses the Acts Network, which is dedicated to exploring new expressions of faith, building community, and going outside of the church building to meet people where they are at and where they love to be. Currently, our Acts Network communities include a nature-focused Church on the Mountain group, Yogis for Christ yoga group, Whisky and the Word theology group, a Rugby group, and more.
First Church is dedicated to developing programs to address food insecurities in our community through weekly to-go meals as well as facilitating a pop-up food pantry twice monthly.
