Sunday Morning Communities

Our goal in our Sunday Morning Communities is to build a solid foundation of Biblical education so that each person can grow in his or her knowledge of Scripture’s content and application.

Meeting together in small groups to study and discuss God’s Word is a way we grow in our faith in Jesus Christ and in fellowship with one another.

Please click the link below for more information about the communities currently meeting.

Youth Ministry

We strive to passionately proclaim Christ’s glory, build disciples, and equip them to reach all peoples.

Women's Ministry

The mission of Women’s Ministries is to encourage and equip women to fulfill their God-given design in the home, church, and world for God’s glory and purpose.

Children's Ministry

Our goal is to teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our children and equip them to serve Christ in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, community and the world.  We pursue this goal through solid biblical teaching in Sunday School, Worship Care and Wednesday evening ministries.

Music Ministry

The music included in our worship services at First ARP Church is designed to enhance the worshiper’s understanding of God, to give voice to their desire to sing songs of praise, confession, and thanksgiving to God and to assist the worshipers in responding to God’s revealed Word.
