First Family Church's main campus is in Ankeny, IA. God, through a series of Spirit-directed events, led the elders and congregation in October 2009, to purchase a 36,000 square foot warehouse sitting on approximately six acres in Ankeny to facilitate the vision and growth God had given them since their inception. After a few months of remodeling to enable basic functionality, First Family Church moved to it’s first “owned” location in January 2010.

Throughout all the location changes and growth, First Family is humbled that God has enabled them to faithfully celebrate the Father, grow in the Son, and serve in the power of the Spirit as God continues to “add to the church those who are being saved” (Acts 2).


Service Time

Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30am

What to Expect

  • Childcare for infants through 2-years of age.
  • Quest Families, our children's ministry for kids 3-years through 5-grade.
  • Authentic worship.
  • Relevant teaching from the Bible. We believe in teaching through complete books of the Bible.
  • Lighthouses. We believe spiritual growth flows out of two basic commitments: A commitment to God and the Bible, and a commitment to significant Christian relationships. To help develop these significant relationships, we have developed Lighthouses. Hosted in homes in and around Bondurant, these groups of eight to 16 people offer a smaller context for study of the Bible, fellowship, accountability, and service.

  • Each week we cover a specific aspect of FFC, hand out some church-related material, and have plenty of Q and A time. So come with questions!
