Q: Can you tell me about your Easter Service?
We have ten different Easter services for you to choose from at both of our campuses (Burlington and Union). Our service will be about 65 minutes long and will include modern songs, a relevant message, communion, and offering. The offering time is for regular attenders of First Church. There is no obligation for our guests to participate in the offering.
Q: What type of message will I hear?
A message from one of our Pastors is typically around 30 minutes long and constructed to deliver biblical truths to your life today. Our Lead Pastor, Darin Mirante will be delivering the message. To give you a better idea of what to expect, you can watch a message from previous weekends HERE.
Q: Can my children join me in the Service?
Yes, you are more welcome to bring your children into the service. We’ll also have our FC|Kids ministry available for children from birth-5th grade. We offer safe and engaging environments with background checked volunteers that will care for your child just as you would. If you're a first time guest and you'd like to take advantage of checking your child into FC|Kids, we encourage you to "Pre-Register" your child by planning your first visit HERE.This will save you time before the service.
Q: Are all of the services the same?
Yes, all of our main service will be the same at both campuses. The one service that will feature different music will be our Sunday 6 p.m. Trio service. Trio offers Southern Gospel music with the same message all other services.
Q: What should I wear?
We encourage you to wear what you feel comfortable in. You'll see some wearing jeans and a t-shirt and others will dress more formally.
Q: Where do I park?
Both locations have parking that surrounds the building. We also have multiple handicap spots available near the main entrances. If you're a first time guest to First Church we encourage you to park in the "Guest Parking" these spots are close to the entrances and available just for you. To reserve one of these spots, let us know you're coming by Planning Your First Visit.
Q: Are there large crowds?
We offer 10 services during Easter because we want to have enough room for everyone. Our Worship Room at Burlington can seat nearly 1,000 people and Union can seat 300. We do encourage you to arrive around 15 minutes prior to the service start times. Our 9:30 & 11:15 a.m. services will be the services will higher attendance.
