Information on our Family Ministries
Family First Nursery
Care for infants and toddlers are provided during each service. We work hard to maintain a safe, loving, educational environment for children infant through age 2. All of our Dream Team volunteers that work in our nursery are background checked and verified so you can feel at ease trusting them with your children. This ministry is led by our Nursery Coordinator, Maria Simpson.
Family First Kids
In Family First Kids we believe that every child deserves to be ministered to. We strive to work together with families to help meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs of every child. Our prayer is that every child will accept Jesus as their own personal Lord and Savior, develop a personal relationship with the Heavenly Father, comes to a full understanding of His plan and purpose for them, and that they will be filled with the knowledge of God’s Word. Our purpose is to teach children how to worship the Lord and actively apply the truth of God’s Word, so they can pray, depend on, trust in, and obey Him. Family First Kids meets with preschool (ages 3-5) and elementary students (Kindergarten-5th Grade), led by Pastor Gloria & Mr. Richard Ehrhart.
ALIVE Youth is our middle school and high school aged ministries at Family First, led by Pastors Michell & Meredith Hobbs. We meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, in the Fellowship Hall. Service starts off with passionate contemporary worship led by our student-led worship team. We teach the students to live out lives of Honor, Passion, and Excellence to live for Christ and to know the intimacy of the Holy Spirit. We also have lots of other events throughout the year to encourage the youth to grow closer as a family and grow closer to the Holy Spirit. Last but not least, we love to have fun – from special events to game nights, we know how to have a good time! Hope to see you soon.
Family First also has a Middle School Ministry (6-8th grade) on Sunday mornings! Our middle schoolers stay in the worship center for worship but are then invited to join a classroom for the message portion. This allows for the same message or series that Pastor Coats is preaching in the main service to be presented and taught to them at their level! We are excited about this new ministry, led by Paul & Terasa Mayercak.
Connect Young Adults
Our Young Adults Connect Group, led by Pastors Michell & Meredith, gathers for Bible Study once a month in the Global Brew Cafe on the 3rd Friday. We also occasionally have special events or outings for fellowship! We strive to connect as a family, learning more about Christ, together. We would love to have new faces join us for a lesson and for fellowship, anyone between the ages of 18-30 is invited!
M Pact Girls Clubs
Family Ministries Night (Every Wednesday) starts at 7:00pm in the Family First Christian Education Hall. This ministry to girls focuses primarily on two important topics, Christian growth and discipleship for the girls, as well as intentional outreach and service opportunities. We teach the girls Biblical truths that will help them learn to make God-pleasing decisions. M'Pact girls are divided into different classes by age and grade. Rainbows (3-5 years old) includes both Boys & Girls. Daisies - Kindergarten. Prims - 1st-2nd graders. Stars - 3rd-5th graders. This ministry is led by our Mpact Coordinator, Pam Bradshaw.
Royal Ranger Boys Club
Family Ministries Night (Every Wednesday) starts at 7:00pm in the Family First Christian Education Hall. In these classes, elementary-aged boys learn about what it means to honor God and their fellow rangers. The goal of the Royal Ranger Ministry is to reach, teach, and keep boys for Christ. It includes a wide-range of activities, from hiking to launching bottle rockets. This ministry is led by our Royal Ranger Commander, George Merkel.
