Downtown Campus

Downtown Campus

Located on the corner of Huntsville Ave. and Shiloh St., our Downtown campus places a strong emphasis on our ministries of children, youth, worship, and missions. We hold four worship services each Sunday morning with four distinct styles. Through our laid-back and warm environment, we strive to offer excellent ministries that builds disciples and serves the larger community.

First Praise Worship
This service begins at 8:30 each Sunday morning. Music is lead by a worship team and is what we call “piano driven.” We often sing songs you will hear on Christian radio stations. The atmosphere is informal and you will find people wearing anything from business casual attire to jeans.

Shiloh Street Worship
At 9:45 each week, this service is led by a band offering the style of music we call “guitar driven.” The music has a rock and even blues feel creating a relaxed atmosphere for worship.  Most people dress very relaxed for this service and you’ll see most people wearing jeans and a few shorts.

Classic Worship
This 11:00 service follows a more traditional pattern than our other worship experiences. Most music is led from the organ or piano along with a Celebration Choir and orchestra. We try to capture a balance between high church and our church’s informal culture. You will find people wearing anything from business casual attire to suits and dresses.

Crossroads Worship
Beginning at 9:45 this service is designed for and often led by our Youth. It takes place in the Youth Wherehouse and features great current music and a message specifically geared for 6-12th graders.

Downtown Campus has a guest parking lot directly across from the sanctuary entrance on Johnson Ave.

Our Connect Center is located just inside the Atrium entrance on Johnson Avenue. This is a great place for new families and guests to stop by for information about First Church or to ask one of our volunteers about any questions you might have.

Have young children? Check out our Children’s Ministry before your visit.
