Our vision is to be a movement of God’s love, so cities are full of hope and people are full of purpose.
We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways by meeting the needs within our communities. Join City First Church on July 15th for our annual SERVE DAY as we make an impact right where we are!
Let’s reach out to those in our family, neighborhood, community, and workplace and show them some love in the name of Jesus. Search for an opportunity at your location or check out some of the ideas we have for inspiration.
