We’re so glad you’re here! At First Church, you’ll experience a welcoming community led by leaders who are committed to having our hearts and our actions transformed by Jesus so that everyone may know Him.
To Know & Be Known
One of the greatest gifts in life is to be known.
No one knows us more fully than Jesus Christ, who was both fully human and fully divine, full of grace and truth. His love transforms us inside and out. This transformation in Christ is the heartbeat of who we are and we do.
First Church seeks to be a church for all kinds of people: our desire is to share God’s goodness everywhere. We meet for worship on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. We gather in sanctuaries and in coffee shops, homes, parks, and other places around town. We worship in formal and informal ways. We celebrate the strengths of tradition and innovation. We embrace the wisdom and beauty found in the diversity of God’s creation. We want to pursue God in the hard places to strengthen our relationship with Him to become rugged disciples. We strive toward humility to let God’s power move through us. In short, we seek to be gathered and sent at the same time.
We’re grateful that you’re taking the time to learn more about us. Please check out our website to get a pulse on who we are and, as you are comfortable, please share how we can be in touch with you; we would love to get to know you better!
Matthew E. Lake, Lead Pastor
Some people connect best with God through the ancient traditions of the church. Other people find God in fresh, different expressions of worship. There is no “right” way to worship. That is why we offer different styles of worship.
KIDS & YOUTH
We prioritize your child’s safety and flourishing through engagement in play, community, and faith education. No matter your child’s age, we have dedicated programs for all the children in your family.

THE ACTS NETWORK
By stepping out in faith and meeting people where they are, we cultivate environments and communities that allow us to share the Gospel. The Acts Network allows us to connect with people we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to.
First Church values and prioritizes listening to our community so that we might reach out in relationship and service in relevant ways. We do this through ministries, partnerships, and collaboration with others who are doing meaningful ministry.
Digital platforms are increasingly a great way to stay connected with people anywhere they are, and get to know new people. Check out all the ways to connect with us virtually by clicking the button.
