The month of December is full of events and activities to celebrate this wonderful season. Our goal is for Christmas at First to be a beautiful part of the annual traditions for our church family and our community. With that in mind, we have several opportunities for our church to serve which will help make each event a success. Below you can check out each event and then click the corresponding link to sign up. If you are available for multiple events, we would love it! If you are only available for one event, that's great too!
If you have questions about any of these opportunities, please email email@example.com.
We will be decking our halls to get into the Christmas spirit! We have several days we will be working. You can choose to work on one day or multiple days, depending on what works best for you. To decorate, you must be 16 years or older. We will meet in the Sanctuary.
