PRE-ORDER
Welcome - We're so glad you're here!

WELCOME TO

FIRST CHURCH


The First Church of Seventh-day Adventists is a community of believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In continuity with the people of God in Old Testament times, we are called out from the world; and we join together for worship, for fellowship, for instruction in the Word, for the celebration of the Lord's Supper, for service to all mankind, and for the worldwide proclamation of the gospel.

Come - Worship with us!

WORSHIP

OPPORTUNITIES


The church is one body with many members, called from every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. In Christ we are a new creation; distinctions of race, culture, learning, and nationality, and differences between high and low, rich and poor, male and female, must not be divisive among us.


LEARN MORE
Serve - Reach in, out, up, and down.

SPIRITUAL FRUIT OF THE MONTH

Winning the Affection of Children'sSmile, parents; smile, teachers. If your heart is sad, let not your face reveal the fact. Let the sunshine from a loving, grateful heart light up the countenance. Unbend from your iron dignity, adapt yourselves to the children's needs, and make them love you. You must win their affection, if you would impress religious truth upon their heart.
