The Purpose of Outreach and Missions:

To become more like Jesus through acts of kindness and mercy by serving those in need and by sharing the gospel with the lost.

First Church is blessed with a serious commitment to reaching out and making a difference in this world. From the regular mission opportunities locally, nationally and internationally, to the support of military members around the globe, we are touching lives.
