Outreach

Here at First Church, we have a variety of ways we are reaching those in need. We work together to serve our local community by providing food, clothing, educational support, and the word of God. Through faith in action, we are reaching out beyond the walls of the church to provide real-life services that meet the needs of our community.

Additionally, First Church works to support global needs through various mission trips, supporting missionaries in the field, and providing physical support for those in need.
