WHAT TO EXPECT AT FIRST CHURCH
Pastor Ray StarkWelcome to First Church! It is never easy to visit a new church for the first time, so we want to be as helpful as we can in making your experience an enjoyable one. First Church, led by Lead Pastor, Ray Stark, is a dynamic church that will connect with your daily life. Whether you are just curious about church and God or you are a committed Christ-follower, you are welcome here. Enjoy visiting our website, but don't stop there. Join us this Sunday for our high-energy, life-changing worship service. It may just change your life forever!

HOW SHOULD I DRESS?

At First Church we want you to feel comfortable to worship God with us.  Some people like to dress up for worship while others dress more casually.  We believe that God is more interested in your heart than he is in how you dress.  So, you will find some people dressed more formally while others will be in jeans and shorts.  Dress how you are most comfortable and you will be loved and accepted just the way you are.


WHAT IS WORSHIP?

This is time set aside for communicating with God and expressing how much we love Him.  We have upbeat music with guitars, drums, keyboards, and more.  We have a full team of singers who help lead us in worship.  Everyone worships in their own unique way.  For many, that means singing, clapping and raising their hands, and for others it means quietly reflecting on the words of the song.  At First Church, you are welcome to join us in expressing what comes from your heart in praise to God.

WHAT ABOUT THE OFFERING?

Each week there is a time to worship God through the giving of the tithes and offerings.  As a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give.  This is an act of worship for those who regularly attend First Church, allowing them to thank God for all of the great things he is doing in their lives.  It is also the financial support that allows First Church to reach more people for Christ in the future.

Also, during the service we ask each person to fill out a Connection Card.  This card is a great way to communicate with our church staff, sign up for upcoming events, and request more information about a ministry of our church.  The Connection Cards are collected during the offering time of our worship service.

THE MESSAGE?

In each service you will hear a relevant, straightforward message that is based on Scripture from the Bible.  Each message is designed to be helpful in your daily life.  We trust that our pastor's messages will help you develop a vibrant, growing relationship with Jesus Christ and that they will provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.

WHAT IS THERE FOR THE CHILDREN?

We take both the care and safety of your children very seriously.  All our pastoral staff and children and youth workers must pass a background clearance.  We want you to feel secure in who takes care of your children during the worship service.

For children ages newborn through 23 months, we offer a fully staffed nursery in a fun, kid-friendly environment.  Kidz Worship is our children's worship program for ages 4 through 5th grade.  The last Sunday of each month is designated Family Worship Sunday.  All the children from Kidz Worship attend the worship service and sit with their parents.  This gives parents an opportunity to teach their children what it means to worship God as a family.
