  • Follow Christ

    Choosing to follow Christ is the single most important decision you can make on earth.  Some make this decision as children and for some, it comes later in life.  We are here to help you know what it means to follow Christ with your life.  A beautiful picture of this decision is baptism.  We encourage everyone who has made this decision to be baptized.  If you'd like to learn more about baptism, you can click here to watch a message that answers many questions that people have about baptism.  


    If you're ready to make this decision click here to register your baptism.

  • Serving

    Whether you've served in the church or community for years or just getting started, we hope you're serving where you are passionate and gifted!   A great first step to learning how you are wired is to take the GPS (Gifts, Passions, Skills) Assessment.  It's not a quiz or test, and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.  God wants to use what He has given you, and this helps identify your Serving Sweet Spot!  Our World/Community Impact Director, Jenny Leach, would love to talk with you about finding a great fit for your unique gifts!   You can reach her at jleach@firstchurch.me


    You can explore serving opportunities here.


  • Groups

    God didn't design you to do life alone.  He created you to thrive in relationship with others.  We have many opportunities to connect with others in groups.  You can find more information here.
