There’s a place for you to make a difference at First West.
We exist to see people changed by the Gospel and living out their Christ-centered purpose. We believe a marker for a growing Christian is that they are serving in and out of the church regularly. The need to serve within our church campuses is significant. There are many moving parts to what we do. You matter to God. Your service to Him matters. Listed below are just some of the ways you can serve in our church. Let us know where you would like to serve.
