Why Serve? 

At First Pres, we believe that every person has unique, God-given gifts and talents to be used for his Kingdom and his glory. We want to help you identify and use your gifts for the sake of building up the church. There are three primary ways to serve at First Pres:  serve at Sunday worship, serve our church community, and serve the city of Aurora.  

 

SERVE AT SUNDAY WORSHIP

We have a lot of moving parts on Sunday mornings, and it takes a lot of people to help things run smoothly. Our goal on Sunday mornings is to create an environment where we can have a fresh encounter with God the Father and come to know Jesus through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. We have several different ways to serve on Sunday mornings, including: 

Music Ministries:  Do you have a passion or talent for music? We have vocal choirs for all ages, a worship band, bell choir, and other ways you can use your enthusiasm for music to serve God and bless our church body.  Click here for more information on our Music Ministries.   

Tech Ministries:  If you have an interest in multimedia or sound, we can use those passions for Sunday morning worship. Training is provided.  

Greeters:  If you enjoy people, smiling and saying hello, greeting ministry could be for you! Greeters proved that crucial "first-encounter" for people as they enter the church. 

Ushers:  If you love hospitality, consider being an usher. Ushers provide a warm smile, assist people to their seats, collect the offering, and maintain a welcoming worship environment.  

 


SERVE OUR CHURCH COMMUNITY

Beyond Sunday morning worship, we have several other opportunities to serve within our church. We'd love to talk with you about some ways you could get involved, including leading adult or children's Sunday School, helping out with marriage mentoring, serving Senior adults or adults with special needs, or leading a small group. Use the contact form below to share with us your interests, and we'll work to help you find a way to use them.   


SERVE OUR CITY

We are passionate about serving the city of Aurora and providing opportunities for people to get outside of the church walls and bless the neighborhood.  

Kingdom Kid's Club:  Kingdom Kid's Club (KKC) is a neighborhood after-school program which exists to provide a safe and secure place where children can laugh play and learn about Jesus. KKC is always looking for volunteers to help teach, tutor, cook and serve the children on Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the school year.  

Respect Life:  We are passionate about ending abortion and helping women in unplanned pregnancies find the hope and help they need to chose life. We do this through praying outside our local Planned Parenthood and providing volunteers and donations to pregnancy centers in the area.  

Mission Aurora:  Mission Aurora is the service outreach of First Pres, established to create and encourage ways that our church can love and serve the city of Aurora. We offer regular Mission Aurora events as well as providing the opportunity for the First Pres community to build partnerships with ministry organizations in the city of Aurora. Here are some of the organizations we've worked with through Mission Aurora:
