               Did you know?
In 2018, 5,703 people were served  hot, homemade meals on real china at the Saturday Community Lunch.   That's an average of 110 people each week.

Since we encourage our guests to truly be filled by offering seconds, thirds, fourths, and take home meals - that came to 11,507 meals for an average of 222 meals per week.

In addition to tummies being filled, spirits were filled as 1320 people attended the worship service that is held during the lunch.

A total 3,116 volunteers shared their love of God and their love of others by helping prepare and serve meals and clean up afterwards.

Community Outreach
New Partner Churches and Community Groups are welcomed and needed. In order to continue serving the community a lunch every Saturday, and to begin serving homeless children through Family Promise, we need help. Call the church office at 896-5683 for information.  We will come to your church or group to talk about this wonderful opportunity to be God's hands and feet in our community

Community Lunch Every Saturday - With the help of our partner churches we serve between 200-300 meals every Saturday to our guests.  Volunteers and new partner organizations are always welcome.

Family Promise of Butler County - We will once again be hosting families the week of December 15-22, 2019.  They will be at First for the entire week.  We are always looking for volunteers to help prepare meals, meet with families, and set-up in preparation of their arrival If interested contact the church office.
