What are you doing for others?
Love is a verb, an action word. It's something you do, not something you feel. At First Church it's our deepest desire to share God's love with the world, and that begins right here in our own community. Join us and make a difference! Here are just a few of our local outreaches:
Community Thanksgiving Dinner
Each Thanksgiving Day members of our church family gather to host and serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, free to anyone in the community who would like to come. Lunch is served in the Family Life Center. Work begins around 8:00 AM and lunch is served at 11:00 AM. There's plenty to do, and a blessing is guaranteed!
Come make the Christmas season brighter for families in need. Led by First Youth!, our church family hosts a banquet for a group of families who need a little help at Christmas. In addition to a meal, we provide coats for family members and toys for children who might otherwise go without.
It's amazing how something so small can be so important to the life of someone in need. $10 can fill a shoebox with a number of daily essentials for someone who has been displaced from their home or who is going through difficult financial circumstances. Donate shoeboxes, supplies, money, or your time to prepare these boxes of mercy.
Mobile Camps for Youth
For the past several summers First Church has brought a mobile camp to our campus and invited neighborhood children to attend free of charge, giving them the opportunity to enjoy many traditional camping activities right in their own backyard while meeting new friends and hearing the story of Jesus. There are ample opportunities for folks to volunteer to make these camps a success!
