In addition to our infant and toddler nurseries, Sundays at 11:00 a.m. First Church teaches children K-5th about the Bible. We teach the Bible lesson to the entire group and then divide into smaller groups based on age. The children rotate between three rooms where the theme is reinforced through a variety of games, crafts, snacks, science experiments, and object lessons.
The first Sunday of every month is Family Sunday, and K-5th graders enjoy the main service with their families instead of separate classes. The infant and toddler classes (through age 4) are still available on these Sundays.
Additional special events are planned throughout the year including:
Elevate Student Ministries is a group designed to connect young people to Christ and one another. We use weekly services and strategic events to help young people GROW and create opportunities for them to SERVE their community and REACH their world.
It is extremely important each and every one of our young people know they are valued and appreciated. We know the relationships they cultivate during this time in their lives can radically impact the course of their life. It is our mission to CONNECT with each young person in such a way that they realize their potential and the importance of what they contribute to the Body of Christ!
We believe young adults bring energy, ideas, creativity, and passion to the church. Our mission is to empower this generation to use their gifts for the benefit of their community and the furthering of the Gospel. We hope to help our young adults, ages 18-35, find fulfillment in their lives and develop passion and purpose for ministering in the body of Christ.
Our Ladies Ministry helps First Church members celebrate many of life’s blessings with precision organization, creativity in decorations, table settings, and menus that must be experienced to be appreciated! The members of First Church are the beneficiaries of a team of ladies who are hard-working, faithful, and gifted. Our Ladies Ministry does a wide variety of events such as, Baby showers, Weddings and wedding showers, Mother, Daughter & Friends luncheon every Spring, Graduation Celebration for our First Church graduates every Summer, and First Church Ladies Retreat every Fall. In addition, the First Church ladies meet weekly for prayer time together.
The men at First Church strive to be outstanding because they know they serve an outstanding God! First Church has exciting things happening in the Men’s Ministry. In addition to our weekly prayer and monthly meetings together, the men are involved in serving our local community as well as reaching across the globe through missions. It is our desire as men to serve God, family, and others, highlighted by a disciplined life. We aim to make a difference!
First Church endeavors to provide a source of fellowship for everyone. Thus, PrimeTimers was established for those who are age 55 and upward. Dinners “out”, pizza parties “in”, game nights, Port Huron cruise, plays and a dinner auction are some of the events the PrimeTimers have enjoyed. The First Church Youth Department hosts a yearly Thanksgiving brunch for the PrimeTimers which is something they are always excited to attend.
