Ministry in the community

We take seriously Jesus's desire for his followers to be good neighbors. We pray that the way we minister in our community demonstrates Christ's compassion and commitment to being a good neighbor. 

  • First Church started and continues to support the work of this non-profit devoted to asset-based community development in our church's neighborhood.
