The move to Port Warwick is part of First Church’s long-held commitment to being involved in the community, maintaining relevance, and serving the people of Newport News and the Virginia peninsula. First Church is a place where people can come as they are. We believe that everyone is welcome, no one is perfect, and anything is possible when God is involved. We want to be a community that: Loves God with all of its heart, mind, and soul. Loves all people regardless of their past or present and with great hope for their future. We would love for you to come visit us Sunday mornings at 10:30am. You will find the atmosphere to be relaxed, upbeat, and friendly.
