WHEN DO WE GATHER?
SUNDAY MORNINGS - We gather at 10am.
We are located just off EXIT 1 (Port Jervis) of Interstate 84 West near the New York/Pennsylvania stateline.
Our time together is about 90 minutes and includes worship (singing, reflection, and giving) and an inspirational, practical, life-application message from the Bible. We have a safe and secure Children's Church, a special time following the morning worship, for children ages 5 - 5th grade with an age-appropriate message and activities. We also provide safe and secure Toddler Care for children ages 2-5 with trained adult volunteers. An Infant Care Room, with an area for nursing mothers, is available where parents can meet their babies needs and watch the service via video. After our service we invite you to "Get Connected" held downstairs in our cafe. Enjoy some coffee and light refreshments as you have a chance to meet others and get connected to our church family.
SUNDAY EVENINGS - From September thru November and January thru mid June, Sunday evening is our Family Night from 6 - 7:30pm. Girls Ministry is for girls and young ladies from K - 12th grade. Royal Rangers is for boys and young men from K - 12th grade, Parents can join our Adult Growth Group.
During the summer months we change our focus. We don't meet for Family Night because: 1) We want families to spend time together and 2) We want families to participate in our community outreach events.. We do, however, host occasional special events during the summer months. Check our website for updates.
If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Cathleen Zahradnik.
WHY DO WE EXIST? - Our purpose as a church.
God gives every person a unique calling and purpose for their lives. God also gives every church a unique purpose that each church member is called to fit into. At First A.G. our purpose is "Helping people live God-centered lives founded on Biblical truth."
HOW DO WE FULFIL OUR PURPOSE? - Our process as a church.
How do we help people live God-centered lives founded on Biblical truth? This requires a journey or process that a person participates in so that they can grow as a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and so that they can have a necessary, engaged role in His church. Here is a simple explanation of our four-step on-going process:
CONNECT - Our Sunday worship gathering is a place where all can connect with God, His Word, and His Church. Our time together is about 90 minutes and includes worship (singing, reflection, and giving) and a message from the Bible. Messages are biblical and application-focused so that each person, believer or not, can leave with something of God's Word to apply to their lives that day and that week.
GROW - At First A.G. Church we believe that relationships are essential to spiritual growth. That is why we meet together in small groups we refer to as Growth Groups. In a Growth Group you will study God’s Word together and help each other process ways to apply God’s Truth to daily life. You will also pray together and have fun together!
SERVE - Giving our lives away in service to others is another essential element of spiritual growth. Each of us has gifts intended to serve Christ, His church and the world. Our goal is to help each person find his or her place of ministry in the church. There is a place for YOU here at First A.G. Church.
REACH - Our mission as believers is to reach others with the transforming love of God. We are committed to helping you find your place of mission outside the church. We do this by offering opportunities to serve in outreaches to the community and by encouraging you to recognize that your calling extends beyond the church into your neighborhood and your workplace.
We are here to help you discover your God-given purpose and fulfil His will for your life as you participate in His process of healing. That means being a part of His family, the church. Let us know how can we help you?
