Plan a Visit


Visiting a church for the first time can be intimidating. When you’re ready to take that step, we want to make sure that you feel informed before you arrive and welcomed when you are here.

Below you will find everything you need to know for planning your first visit guiding you all the way from the parking lot to the exit. Still have questions? I would love to help answer any questions and meet you on Sunday! Lacey Adair |

Sunday Morning Classes

We offer a wide variety of Sunday mornings classes at 9:45am for adults. These smaller communities encourage us to grow as disciples as we study, serve, and build community. Our Sunday Morning Classes span every age and life-stage.

Not sure what class to try? Stop by the welcome desk on Sunday morning or contact Emily Kincaid | for assistance. 

Community Groups

Community Groups are intimate groups that commit to meet and connect with each other. They encourage one another to grow in their understanding of the Gospel as they live out their faith. Community Groups are formed by demographic, interest, and stage of life. They are intended to foster deeper relationships with God and group members, which encourages greater transparency, transformation, and accountability during and outside group time

Our Clergy

Rev. Dr. Geoffrey Lentz: Senior Pastor
Rev. Brandon Bures: Executive Pastor
Rev. Emily Kincaid: Associate Pastor
Dr. Rick Branch: Minister of Music

You may become a member of First Church any Sunday morning by profession of faith in Jesus Christ or transfer of membership from another denomination. At the conclusion of every service, anyone who is interested in joining our family of faith is invited to come forward during the closing song. The minister will then ask you to uphold the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. If you or your children have not been baptized, we will schedule your baptism for an upcoming service.
