Scripture tells us that God is close to the brokenhearted and that God sets the lonely in families. The First Church family of believers is here to show the love of Christ through helping to meet the needs of those who are struggling.






Sometimes unexpected stress or emergencies can leave you in need of support. If you are seeking for care from a pastor through visitation or prayer, be sure to reach out to Pastor Rick.

Partners in Care is a ministry of First Church dedicated to sharing the love of Christ with those having limited mobility. As a Partner, you will be paired with a home-bound member as a visitor and a friend. Requirements to be a Partner in Care involves visiting your partner at least once a month for a minimum of one year, and to pray for your partner daily. We are always looking for people interested in becoming a Partner in Care.
