Physical Services Moved to Online Services

With the announcement from Louisiana John Bel Edwards closing Louisiana’s public schools and banning gatherings of 250 or more, First West has determined that it is best to move from physical meetings to online meetings beginning Sunday, March 15 until further notice. Services for all three of our campuses will be led by a team from our West Monroe, Fairbanks, and Calhoun campuses at 9:30 a.m. on the First West Facebook page. The service will be able to be replayed all day on our Facebook page and will be live and on demand on and the First West ROKU app.

Your safety is important to us. We want everyone to stay healthy. We are encouraging everyone to take appropriate measures to stay healthy, especially those who are senior adults and medically compromised to catch the virus. 

During this time, we also call the entirety of the church to responsibly serve, love, and care for those in need.

We encourage you to stay connected to our church. While we will be taking a new approach to meeting together, we encourage you to stay connected to First West.


Stay Connected

Here are five ways we invite you to stay connected:

  1. You can watch the livestream from our services on Facebook and Roku or by clicking Messages > Watch Live at
  2. Download the First West App for iOS and Android through the App Store and Google Play.
  3. Parents and grandparents can download the Parent Cue App that aligns with our First West Kids programming to access weekly content and useful resources. And be sure to follow each campus First West Kids Facebook Page for weekly updates.
  4. You can give by texting CALHOUNFW, FAIRBANKSFW OR WESTMONROEFW to 77977 or by going online to
  5. You can communicate with us at 318-322-5104 or e-mail us at to get in touch with Pastoral Care or if you need help.

First West is also applying a new standard for any church-sponsored travel both inside and outside of the United States. We will not ask any employee or volunteer to endanger their health and welfare with travel to countries with government-issued travel restrictions or advisories.

Adults at the Calhoun Campus

At our Calhoun campus, we want to connect adults with opportunities to worship, build community, and serve. It’s our threads and it’s who we are. LIFE Groups are a great way to build community. These groups serve as the bridge to a deeper commitment to the life of the church. We have many groups for you to plug into. Groups meet at our campus location on Sunday and in homes during the week.

We also have ways you can serve. There’s a place for you! First West is here to help plug you in to helping us see to it that no one misses the grace of God.
