We are sponsoring a family through Kings Table this Christmas season. Because every life has value and purpose, King's Table is dedicated to serving individuals and families impacted by developmental and intellectual disabilities.  We will go shopping together on Sunday night, December 11, wrap, & possibly drop off the Christmas items to the family that evening.  The next couple of Sunday nights we will begin collecting money for our shopping experience. More info is coming this Sunday!

Check out the December monthly calendar.

  • FirstCovGR Student Ministry is a community of teens being transformed. We want them to know God and become fully committed followers of Jesus Christ to bring glory and honor with their lives. We hope and expect to raise up spiritual leaders to impact the world for Jesus Christ. We are a community of students from 9th grade - 12th grade. It’s a place for fun! It’s a place for students to connect in small groups with peers and leaders. It’s a place to explore the story of God and to find a place within it. It’s a place to experience the life-changing power of Jesus through acts of service. It’s a place to express real faith in the real world. It’s an experience not to be missed.



  • You must have a current FirstCovGR Student Registration/Waiver for July 2022 - August 2023 submitted to participate at FirstCovGR's student ministry events. Please fill out one form per student. Form: https://bit.ly/3eFU4vZ
