Ministry Programs


First CRC is a growing center of ministry to the North Seattle region.  We have been blessed with a great group of committed disciples who are learning how to follow Jesus and who will help others walk the same path.  We are so much more than just Sunday worship.  If you want to grow deeper in grace we have a place and a ministry that can help.  Plan to join us!

What does this mean?

We are growing and developing ministries for all ages.  We wish that everyone, from newborn to someone 121 years old, can find a place to plug in and grow.  First is a place where new ministry ideas are birthed each month.  Come and join us.  Let's grow in grace together.

What types of ministry are offered at First?

Our primary ministry objective is to grow people deeper through discipleship so we can grow outward through gospel- and grace-centered outreach.  Dr. Greg's passion is gospel-centered discipleship and living.  He offers a 16 week discipleship course from World Harvest Mission called Sonship.  The purpose of this course is to understand and apply the transforming power of the gospel to every area of life.  A new class is starting soon, so join us at First and get involved.  If you are interested in knowing more contact Dr. Greg at  

We also offer men's and women's bible studies  and other adult ministries that occur throughout the week.  These groups are great opportunities to grow in your understanding of the scriptures and to grow into our community through fellowship with others.  A new study is starting soon, so contact Erica at the church office for more details

If you haven't noticed, new ministries are starting all the time!  From college and career ministries, to new discipleship opportunties, to finding financial planning assistance, to ____ (you fill in the blank), new ministries are starting.  Come and join us because there is a place for you here at First!


What about Children's Ministries?

 At First we are committed to helping all ages grow in grace.  We have excellent and expanding ministries for our children.

For the youngest children we offer a children's church that teaches the truth of grace in age appropriate ways during the church hour.

For grades 3-6 we offer two exciting ministries that meet on Wednesday evenings.  Gems is a ministry for girls and Cadets is a ministries for boys.  Contact Erica Bauman for information about Gems and Ron Alberda for information about Cadets.

For grades 7-8 we have MAC which meets on Wednesday evenings.  This time of discipleship and fun brings the gospel to life for those in the difficult middle school years.  Contact Chris and Briana van Elderen for information about this ministry

For High School Students we have EPIC, which meets on Sunday evenings.  This great group of young and growing adults meets for discipleship, fun together, and worship.  Click on the link to the right to see their philosophy of ministry and their updates on facebook.  Contact Kellie Holly or Gregg Boer for details.
