Serving at First Family
Throughout the Bible we read about the importance of serving God and one another, such as Joshua 22:5, where we read:
"...love the Lord your God, and walk in all his ways and keep his commandments and cling to him and serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
Jesus Christ himself modeled this with His disciples and others He encountered during His earthly ministries. Jesus' example should serve as a model for His followers to selflessly serve one another faithfully.
Here at First Family Church, we 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. If you're interested in serving, we'd love to connect with you! Click the link below to get started, and read below for descriptions of each serving role.
Join us as we train and encourage in the gospel, build a firm foundation on Christ, and grow in God’s character together.

In serving on the Safety Team at FFC, you will help to ensure the church provides the safest possible environment for children and adults attending and serving during weekly services and special events. If an incident arises at FFC, the men and women of the Safety Team will address them in an effective manner that minimizes disruption and harm to persons or property.
The hospitality team consists of a group of people who provide food and/or meals for families or ministries. The needs vary in types and lengths, but are all situations where this provision of food would greatly help. The group is large enough that each team member can choose to be involved as much or as little as they would like. The opportunities are simply emailed to the group and the team members respond as they are available and able at that time.
