Student Ministry at First

Our students are part of the church’s mission now as well as in the future. Our goal is to have the healthiest and most balanced ministry possible for students in the 7th grade through college.
Our ministry exists to put God F.I.R.S.T. through FRIENDSHIP with each other, INTERACTION with God, REACHING OUT to others, SERVICE to those in need, and TEACHING God’s Word.
