SUNDAY 4:30PM | 6PM
our current series.
Jesus promised His followers that He would not abandon them, but that they would be emboldened by the presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. The Bible repeatedly uses “wind” as a metaphor to explain how God’s Spirit operates in the world. Wind is one of the only things we understand as both non-physical and tangible at the same time. We can’t hold the wind, but we don’t doubt its existence. We can see the wind’s influence and power all around us. On the day the church began, God’s Spirit descended on His people in a powerful way and has been working in His church ever since. As we keep in step with what the Spirit wants us to do (Galatians 5:25), He’ll empower us to change the world.
Easter at first church
Come and celebrate the greatest promise ever fulfilled--Jesus conquering the grave! From Good Friday to Easter Sunday we have lots of things planned for you and your family. Be sure to check out our Easter page for more information. Make it a memorable Easter with First Church!
Because of Jesus, we have victory and light in the midst of darkness. Join us at First Church next week onsite or online for our normal service times of 8:15, 9:45, & 11:15AM. Whichever you choose, we're so glad to worship with you.
In late 2021, First Church entered a new season of ministry. Our church family boldly trusted God's calling on us for 100% engagement. We named the journey, "Unstoppable." Unstoppable is Kingdom expansion rooted in our sincere desire to impact the 918 and beyond with the life-changing message of Jesus. In the last two years, attendance, serving, giving, and most importantly, the number of people baptized at First Church reached an all-time high in our 117-year history. Through Unstoppable generosity, we've been able to support, and in some cases, expand support for ministry partners locally and globally all while expanding our N. Garnett Road campus. We are currently in the largest phase of expansion for the Unstoppable initiative. When it's complete, we will have a larger elementary ministry facility to teach future generations the good news of the gospel.
