Important Announcment!
We are excited to announce that First Church will launch a new outreach ministry. Saving Grace Ministries has been created to minister to those who have been affected directly or indirectly by an abortion decision. Our desire is to come alongside those who have previously had an abortion as well as the family and/or friends who have been affected by the decision. We know that abortion is a sensitive subject and a traumatic experience for anyone involved. We believe that God desires that His people have a voice in speaking truth and love into the hearts of hurting people. Please be in prayer for this ministry. More information will be coming soon. For specific questions, please feel free contact us at sgministriesfw@gmail.com.
The Training Depot is open. They must adhere to strong CDC guidelines during this time. It is extremely important for anyone coming to the church during this time to follow the guidelines below. We appreciate your cooperation with the recommendations to assure the safety of our TD children and staff.

  • Please do not enter the TD hallway unless absolutely necessary.  

  • If you need to enter the TD hallway, you are required to stop at the cones & call the TD office or stop at the door and ring the doorbell.
