Next Steps

Whether you're just discovering Christianity, or you've been a Christian for decades, we all have a next step. What's yours?

Plan Your Visit

Each Sunday we celebrate the good news of the gospel together. We’d love for you to join us for a service! We want you to know what you can expect before you come for a service. Where are we located? Where should you park? Where do your kids go? What should you wear? What’s our music like? Get those answers and more.

Connect

A place doesn’t really feel home until you’ve made a personal connect with someone, does it? We want to help you get connected and learn more about us so that First Family can start to feel like home to you.

Believe

Every single one of us has a problem: sin. The Bible says there’s only one solution to the problem: Jesus. God sent his only son, Jesus, to come to earth, live the perfect life we should have lived, die the sacrificial death we should have died, and rise from the grave. If we simply put our faith in Christ’s work on our behalf, and not on our own work, the Bible says God will save us.

Discover FFC

Just starting out? Our Discovery Class gives people new to FFC a chance to learn about our church and what we believe, meet some of our leadership, and ask questions. After coming for a service, this is your first step towards getting plugged in at First Family! This is a great chance for you to learn more about us and what it would look like to become a part of our family.

Get Baptized

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony to his/her faith in the final resurrection of the dead.

Join a Small Group

Real growth happens in community. And Small Groups are where community happens. They’re where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study God’s Word while supporting and sharing our lives with one another. We believe that meeting together on a regular basis is time well spent. Truly, it’s where the “family” in First Family Church really comes through.

Become a Member

We see membership as the public recognition of and identification with the responsibilities that accompany belonging to the body of Christ. This is in stark contrast to the “benefit” mindset of a country club, which is characterized by a “What’s in it for me?” mentality. Essentially, should you decide to join, you are “owning up” to the responsibility of being part of this body.

Serve

We often talk about our three key values: to celebrate, grow, and serve. As you are a part of our church family, we encourage you to be involved by serving in our ministries. We have many different areas for you to get plugged in with that will allow you to use your gifts and talents to serve God and others.

Go

We embrace the mission left to us by Jesus by 1) planting churches 2) partnering with others, and 3) powerfully witnessing as individuals. These three thrusts comprise the bulk of our outreach strategy. Reaching the lost is a key aspect of First Family.

Lead

We’re always on the lookout for the next ministry leader, deacon, or elder. True leadership at First Family is one of serving the mission of Christ, with everything pointing back to developing devoted followers of Jesus Christ who celebrate, grow, and serve for the glory of God.
