Missions at First Church

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

~ Matthew 28: 19-20 (NIV)

Our missions and ministry opportunities here at First Church are a vital component to our spiritual growth. We believe that the path of discipleship must include putting our faith into action (see James 2: 14-26). Members of our church family are active in mission opportunities both here locally and overseas. Wherever God is calling you, we have a great missions opportunity for you.

Whether you’re called to work with disadvantaged children, bless seniors and shut-ins or work to spread the Gospel in another country, First Church has ongoing mission opportunities for you. Below is a list of some of our current mission and ministry opportunities. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, drop us a note as we’d love to discuss.

Cuba Missions

Started in 2016, through the leading of the Holy Spirit we have formed a partnership with United Methodist Conference of Cuba. As travel restrictions have eased, we have made more than a dozen short-term mission trips into Cuba over the past 2+ years. Most our work has been coordinating through local churches in Holguin and Havana.
