Back to In-Person Church!

While the pandemic is not over, we do want to give you the opportunity to experience church in person again. Please pre-register your attendance so we can assure adequate spacing and bring your own mask. Find out more as you register below (under Worship With Us).

Our online services will continue to be posted each weekend for you to watch.

  • Prayer Request

    Our Befriender Ministry exists to pray with you and for you, and is honored to lift your concerns and joys to God in total confidence and without judgment.


    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”    Philippians 4:6-7


    Prayer Request


    Our prayer ministry is entering its 4th year with the same goal, to cover First Church in prayer. Each day in 2021 we want a member of our congregation praying for our pastors, staff, ministries, and members. We invite you to sign up to pray for our church.
