We welcome you to 1st Church. Whether you are a new believer, new resident, or looking for a permanent church home, the decision of where to worship is an important one.   Many questions might flood your mind:  How will I fit in? Do they worship in a way I want to worship? Will the music be too traditional, to rocky, or just right?  Do they have something for my kids or my teens?  The goal of 1st Church is to make you feel like you have come home. A place where you can bring your burdens and requests.  A place where you feel you have a family ready and waiting to welcome you with open arms.  To help you learn more about 1st Church, we would like to answer some of your most frequently asked questions.

What Worship Experience is Right for Me?

1st Church offers two worship options, Traditional and Contemporary:

 

Traditional Worship, at 8:00 am and 11:00 am, is held in our historic Sanctuary located at the North end of our campus.  Both traditional services are filled with music from our talented musicians, along with hymns and liturgy with our Chancel Choir singing at our 11:00 service.

 

Contemporary Worship, at 9:15 pm, offers a relaxed atmosphere for all ages featuring our Praise Band playing modern worship often heard on local Christian stations, such as WAY-FM, JOY-FM or WVIJ 91.7. 

 

What Is the Worship Service like?

It is our hope you will feel at home when you visit 1st Church. Worship with the 1st Church family is our visible expression of praise to God.  We believe Christ-centered fellowship, along with music and scripture focused messages are meant to inspire and encourage our Church family throughout the week.  Communion is offered to all believers during our Family Service every 1st Sunday of the month.    If our staff or volunteers can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to let us know.
