At First Galveston Church we believe in the power of connections to change lives. We want to encourage every one who attends to get connected to this vibrant body of Christ. No matter what stage of life you are in there is a place for you to connect and a place for you to serve here at First. We hope you will take some time and discover where you best fit in "Living Out."
Our Mission's Ministry follows Acts 1:8, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” This year we have a greatly expanded missions roster, including many local, regional, and world missions. It is indeed a blessing to have so many opportunities to serve.
