Get Involved

Here’s a well-known secret: a great way to participate in the community life of First Church is to volunteer!

Volunteering is rewarding for you in many ways. You’ll get to meet and grow to know others in the community as you work side by side. And you’ll feel good about the work you do that is valued by so many.

Your volunteer hours are essential to allow First Church to offer all the programs we share with each other.

If you explore the drop-down menu under this Get Involved heading, you’ll discover a myriad of opportunities. They range from volunteer roles that are fairly straight-forward and mostly require your reliable presence to responsibilities (such as board committee work, Pastoral Care Associates, Worship Associates) needing profession skills or some amount of special training that we will gladly provide.
