Family life is hard.  Being a part of a family is not for the faint of heart.  The struggles of marriage in our current culture are numerous.  Raising children is enough to drive us mad.  Dealing with aging parents, full-time jobs, teenagers in the home, teething infants, financial strains, and simply living with our spouses can be enough to overwhelm us.  But being in a family shouldn't be overwhelming, it should be the greatest blessing on earth.  

Join us for our current message series at First Church as we study God's guidance for us in our families. We will be examining the differences between men and women, how we can celebrate singleness, the role of children in a family, and even God's plan for sexual intimacy.  You won't want to miss this message series at First Church.  We hope you will join us!

  • Worship

    Blended Worship Service - 10:45AM in the Sanctuary

    This beautiful worship service blends both the modern and the tradition into one dynamic event.  Our talented worship band leads us in our modern music while our traditional songs are accompanied on our pipe organ. Those with no church experience will feel just as comfortable as those with lots of church experience.  Children will feel part of the worship service with a Children's Message by our Pastor, Children Church for younger children, and activity packets for our older children.

    Pastor Lesly preaches in a practical, easy-to-understand manner that helps translate the Gospel to everyday life.  We hope you will join us as we experience God's love and grace at First Church.
