Seeking truth and sharing life

First College is a college ministry that is all about seeking truth and sharing life together! First College meets on Sunday nights at 6:00p in the Loft.

Seeking truth is seeking Christ through God's Word and through a personal relationship with Him.

Sharing life is living in both communion with God and biblical community with others.

We believe that the gospel moves at the speed of relationships and that God uses our mess for His ministry. Our heart is to equip and encourage all college students to walk daily with Jesus in a personal relationship with Him and to see where their feet are planted as the exact place God has called them to minister. First College also spurs on college students to seek truth and share life with the people around them by intentionally engaging, caring deeply, and loving like Jesus. We want to personally invite YOU to be a part of First College!
