Get Connected at First Church

Adult Education, Ministry and Mission
First Church is an active community of faithful, caring people that offers a variety of ways for adults to learn, serve, and use their gifts in the life of the church and our community. Yes, getting involved and meeting people for the first time can leave some of us feeling anxious, but we’re committed to helping you feel at home. Maybe you’d like to meet a leader before jumping into something.

We can help. Just ask. Don't see what you're looking for? Have questions? Call the church office or send us an email. Don’t be shy!
