  • OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE AT FIRST CHURCH

    With more and more church programs coming back up in person, we do need your help! Not all of our former volunteers are able to return yet, some are still waiting to be vaccinated or belong to a higher risk group that prevents them from coming.  

    If you are able to help out in person, please click on the 'You Can Count on Me' below.

    You Can Count On Me

    Thank you so much for contemplating this and for prayerfully considering which area God calls you.

     

  • HANDS-ON MINISTRY

    Are you looking for ways to live out your faith by serving those in need in our local community? Does your employer offer time-off to participate in volunteer activities?

  • MISSION OF THE MONTH

    The Mission of the Month for September is the Rehoboth Congolese Congregation

    We have the opportunity in September to support the Rehoboth Congolese Congregation with donations of various hygiene and cleaning supplies. We have opened our church doors to the Congregation and this is a way to help with our hearts. Following is a list of most needed items: size 4, 5 and 6 diapers, baby wipes, feminine hygiene pads, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, bars of hand soap, laundry detergent, liquid dish detergent, toilet bowl cleaner, and toilet paper.

    Please put items in the designated box near the Wesley Room. If you are unable to drop off items and wish to donate, please forward cash or check donations to the church office indicating it is for the September Mission of the Month. The shopping will be done for you!

    As always, the Mission Committee thanks you for your support. If you have any questions about the September Mission of the Month, feel free to contact Cynthia Whitely.

     

  • 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.
