What to Expect


You might be wondering, what's it really like at First Church? Simply stated, we're all about Jesus. You won't be met with shame, guilt, or condemnation. And we don't care how you're dressed or what candidate you voted for. Our church is made up of imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable.

Want to know the best part? No matter what you've been through or what questions you might have about God and faith, our church is a place where you'll find the love, grace, and forgiveness Jesus gives to everyone.

You can also go preregister your children now!

This is not only a place of worship, but a place of hope, direction and guidance. It is a teaching church that I personally guarantee, no matter how or when you attend, there will be a “take away” that will transform your thinking. It is completely scripture based, offering enlightenment, peace and assurance that God loves and cares for you. Try us out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Is there programming for my kids?

Your children will have a blast in KidZone which is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus.

Everything that is taught in KidZone is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52: I need to make the wise choice. I can trust God no matter what. I should treat others the way I want to be treated. Everything in KidZone is carefully designed to help your child creatively learn about Jesus through interactive lessons, music and hands-on age-appropriate activities. Parent resources and the worship experience is sent each week via email. Parents may subscribe to the KidZone email by emailing kidzone@myfirstchurch.com.

What should I wear?
