People of all ages come together to laugh, cry, pray, serve and support one another at First Church. Together we learn by combining biblical principles with life experiences.

We have excellent programs for children and youth to help them become well grounded in the Christian faith, scripture and grow up to lead lives of Christian discipleship.

Learning doesn’t stop at high school though and we want to help you grow and understand Christ’s calling. We offer traditional Sunday School Classes and some short term bible studies. For us as at First Church, Texarkana, our calling remains unchanged: To Make Disciples of Jesus Christ Through Every Member in Ministry by Equipping People to Love God, Love Each Other and to Serve Their World.
