Several internal ministries couldn’t exist as they do without the commitment of the many volunteers who foster transformation through their God-given talents and abilities.






Spiritual gifts are used and not wasted as we share the transforming love of Christ through care. The Holy Spirit uses our efforts to change hearts. If you have a passion for walking with others in hard times, you may want to consider becoming a Partner in Care or a Stephen Minister.

Contact: Rick Waters, Pastor of Care


Our children’s ministry program exists to introduce children to the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help them to live their whole lives in response. We do so by building Christ-centered relationships, teaching a Bible-centered curriculum, and participating in missional activities.

Anyone who is interested in serving in this ministry MUST complete their Safe Sanctuaries. You can find a list of requirements here.

Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child has demonstrated God’s love in a tangible way to children around the world. Would you consider joining us to share the Good News of Great Joy to children through simple gifts packed in shoeboxes? There are many ways to help this year:

  • Pick up a shoebox before or after 9 AM and 11 AM Sanctuary Services on Sunday mornings now through November 7
  • Pack a shoebox virtually
  • Join us for the Packing Party on Thursday, Nov 4 from 6 PM – 8 PM in the CLC. We have lots of fun items and shoeboxes, we just need your help to pack them!
  • Assist with shipping costs for shoeboxes packed during the Packing Party. You can donate online using the direct link to First Church’s Fundraiser Page

Once you have a full shoebox, please include $9 shipping cost via cash, check (made payable to Samaritan’s Purse), or online donation. This allows your shoebox to go from Williamsport to any of over 100 countries all over the world by plane, train, truck, boat, bike, camel, or elephant to arrive in the hands of a child. The last day to return a filled shoebox is Nov 14.


If you desire to reach those who are not yet here, consider becoming an Acts Network leader. Each Acts Network community is contextual and seeks to connect with people on their turf.
