Our Ministries

eugenefirst kids

Here at Eugene First, our primary goal and desire is that all children, regardless of age or stage of development, know they are loved greatly by God! We endeavor to show all children God’s great love for them through providing a safe place for children to engage with God through the stories of God that we encounter in the Bible, God’s word to us. We believe in the importance and value of telling God’s great love story to children well. We tell this story through interactive games, crafts, activities, free play, and relationships that children build with one another and adults who reflect God’s love and care for them.

eugenefirst youth

We believe that real life happens when we have an authentic relationship with Jesus. We aspire to be like Jesus because in the process of seeking His heart, personal transformation takes place in our own lives. We pursue Jesus because He has overcome sin and given us NEW LIFE. Being a teenager is difficult. There are many frustrations and temptations that influence our young people on a day-to-day basis. Here at Eugene First, we want to provide a safe place for teens to generate and cultivate an authentic relationship with Christ, we also want to create a space for teens to support one another through the hardships in life. Lastly, it is our hearts desire to extend the hope, healing, and wholeness of Christ to those around us.
