Connect with a Ministry
We are a church of people, not programs
All of our ministries are focused on people. It can be easy to focus on only events, plans or programs. We do have events, we do plan, and we do have programs, but they are in service of the people who are involved. We want to serve you, and help you grow in your relationship with Jesus and with others. There are a number of ways to grow and invest here, and we hope you take the chance to get connected.
Our Adult Ministries provide opportunities for adults of all ages to grow with Jesus. You will find opportunities to join a group and to serve with others. If you are new, there are also great opportunities for you to take a next step and connect with us more.
There are many ways you can serve our local community. You can help to serve the homeless in downtown Minneapolis, serve meals to local kids, or you can help us host events for our downtown community.
Missions at First enables us to participate in what God is doing all around the world, whether it's at our local colleges and universities, with our Sister Church in Costa Rica, or many of the other missionaries we support around the world.
At First, our Family Ministry takes a holistic approach: creating continuity from birth all the way through graduation, giving parents the tools to lead their kids in their faith journey, building thriving marriages, and creating space for families to come together.
We are passionately connecting teens to Jesus at First. Through community and connections, we are present with one another on our faith journeys. From retreats to game nights, time with friends to coffee with an adult mentor, our focus is on Jesus.
In Kids' Ministry, we "say yes to the next generation." We are excited to welcome kids each week and create fantastic experiences specifically envisioned to help kids meet Jesus. Kids are an integral part of First, and we are excited for yours to join us.
