Serve Opportunities

God has equipped every follower of Christ with gifts that are to be used to serve others (1 Peter 4:10). We want you to be able to serve in the ways that He has equipped you. This means sitting down with you and getting to know you and your passions.

Below is a list of ways that you could get involved at First Church. When you find something that might line up with your giftings, click "I Want To Serve" to send an email and start the conversation.
