New to First church?

We invite you to be our guest and experience the hope, love, and joy that come from being in the presence of God and among a like-minded community of people. When you enter our front doors, you do so as our friend, but you'll leave as family. At First Church you will be greeted by friendly smiles, you'll have the opportunity to engage in a dynamic worship service, you'll hear the preached Word, and you'll have the ability to come to an altar where you can find an undeniable, life-changing experience with Jesus Christ. It's our desire that you feel the love of God at First Church throughout your visit, and we're intentional about ensuring your time with here is positive and rewarding. We encourage you to join us in service on Sunday or Wednesday.
