We're happy that you're thinking of attending one of our services. The following information will give you an idea of what to expect when you visit our church.

God can be so real to all of us, so open your heart & let God bless you.                                                                  --Pastor Ryan Holley

When You Arrive-

When you first arrive, you'll be greeted by one of our hosts or hostesses. They will give you one of our brochures about the church, & if it's your first time to visit, they will ask you to fill out a visitor's card so that we can have a record of your attendance. We really are glad when someone takes time to visit, & our pastor would like to meet you.

Our Services-

You are welcome to attend any of our scheduled services. Our Sunday morning service is usually an hour & a half long, Our Sunday evenings are set aside for families to spend quality time together & Wednesday worship & Bible study are normally around an hour & a half. Our services are filled with vibrant worship. We clap our hands, lift our hands, sing aloud, & offer heartfelt expressions of worship. Please feel free to worship God in ways in which you are comfortable. If you need assistance at any time during the service, please talk with one of our ushers at the back of the auditorium or with one of our hosts or hostesses in the foyer.

What We Believe-

First Church is a Bible based, Spirit filled fellowship. We believe God changes people's lives through the power of His Spirit. This includes physical & emotional healing, deliverance from addiction, restoration of relationships, & the infilling of the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is fully divine & fully human, & we confess Him as Lord & Savior.

What To Wear-

Many people aren't sure what to wear when they visit. We want you to be comfortable when you visit, so wear what you're comfortable wearing. When you're at one of our services, you'll see a range of styles from jeans to suits. Casual or "Sunday best" doesn't matter.
