First West Students

Invest in the next generation on Sundays and Wednesdays. Lead small groups. Help with worship production. Welcome students. Show students that loving God and following Him can be fun and fulfilling.


We have many LIFE Groups that need teachers, outreach, and fellowship coordinators. You have the opportunity to facilitate life change through the context of relationships and community.

Thrift Store

Our Thrift Store gives away its profits to make a difference all over Northeast Louisiana. Help tag and prepare items for sale, restock the floor with items to sell, test electronics, and meet the needs of customers.

First West Kids

Be a part of creating an environment each weekend where kids learn that God loves them, we believe in them and that church can be fun.


Be a part of a dynamic team of musicians and vocalists who lead our church weekly in worship services. These people lead the way for our entire church to experience the presence of God.

Care and Compassion

We love people. People matter to God. Visit nursing homes where our members reside. Visit widows and widowers who want to come to church but are not able to. Check in on members who are in the hospital.

Preschool & Nursery

Provide a safe and secure environment for newborns, toddlers, and pre-Kindergarten children. Teach these little children the simple truths of God’s word and how much He loves them.

Safety & Security

This unit of care providers serves First West with basic medical attention, campus safety, and security to our guests.

Broaden Horizons

Help with tutoring, mentoring, and teaching children after school throughout Ouachita Parish.

Production & Creative

Lights! Camera! Action! Be the person who allows others to connect in worship by delivering the Word and worship through audio, video, and lighting. You can also be a creative voice to promotion, social media, web design, and photography. Help tell our church’s story.

Weekday Office Workers

Lots of ministry takes place during the week. Help us answer phones, sort mail, run errands for ministry leaders, distribute information to be ready for Sunday.

Guest Services

Be the first person a guest meets and create an atmosphere of welcome for them. Serve as an usher, pour some coffee, and help people take their Next Steps at First West.

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.
