Trying to Find the Right Fit?

At First Church, our priority for Spiritual growth is that each member and visitor finds a community of fellow disciples in which God is calling him or her to grow deeper in faith. Thus we encourage you to visit various Sunday School classes and small groups in which you have interest until you discover this call. Interested in starting a new group? Contact Carol Cooper,
