Welcome 

 

TO OUR WEBSITE

Please take a minute to browse its pages  -- read about our ministries, check out the photo albums, and get a sense of who we are here at First Church.

 And then, why not pay us a visit?  Join us for worship.  Take advantage of opportunities for service, education and spiritual growth that will nurture you on your own unique journey of faith.

 We are a community of Spirit-filled people who promise "Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors."

 We look forward to welcoming you!

 


                                                              

We need to reach past ourselves to those God has placed around us by promoting Christ’s love through Outreach to the community and the world...

That's why we are supporting Halandia Shores in Baldwin, a Senior/Low-Income Housing Development, by collecting and donating food items for their food pantry. For donations or questions please call or text Valerie Geasor at 516.851.9215.
