EDUCATION ENDOWMENT FUNDS 

“Fulfilling our purpose- Grow in Faith!”

The Education Funds help First Church members come together to study, discuss and support each other as we grow in faith. Not only do we get the opportunity to build our relationship with our God, we also develop new relationships with each other as part of our journey of faith. With endowment support, our library collection and instructional materials for children and adults can reflect current interest and needs. They can use multiple teaching and learning strategies. Beyond Sunday morning classes, the youth ministry also includes many youth group activities and events, with special opportunities for friendship and learning through retreats, outings, missions and participation in conferences.
