Coronavirus Response:

 As of 04/02/20


Hello First City Family,

We have missed all of you over the past few weeks and are praying that we get to come together as a church family again soon. Since we are not able to meet together; we have few things we would like to update each of you on:

If you haven’t heard already, the State of Florida has issued a Stay-At-Home order for the whole state until April 30. 2020. Due to this, we have decided to cancel all church activities until Sunday, May 3, 2020. There will be no Sunday services, small groups, or SERVE Day events until May 3.  We will continue to host our online service each Sunday on Facebook and YouTube at 10:00am. You can find the links below to our Facebook and YouTube pages:




Even though we can’t be together this Easter, we still want to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection in the best way we can. This year we are participating in Holy Week, which is the week between Palm Sunday and Easter. Starting Monday, we are going to post a short video each day on our Facebook and Instagram to explain what Jesus experienced on that particular day. We hope that this gives each of us the opportunity to walk in His shoes and learn about what he experienced his last few days on Earth. Please join us on our Facebook and Instagram pages for our Holy Week experience April 6 – April 12.
Our FC Kids leaders want to encourage all our parents to participate in Resurrection Eggs with their kids. In the FC Kids Service Dropbox, they have given you two ways to set up your Resurrection Eggs. One option is a Do-It-Yourself Kit where you get to make all the symbols for each egg with your kids. The other options is to use the free printable to fill each egg.  Remember, you can open one egg a day leading up to Easter or do an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter and then sit down and do all the eggs at once. Both options are great. We want to encourage you to be creative and have fun. In the FC Kids Dropbox you can also find all the materials for this Sunday’s service. There are videos, activity pages and stories for you read with your children for this Sunday’s lesson. If you have any questions regarding FC Kids, please email



We know this time can be stress-inducing so we have started a video series that we’re calling “Families of First City.” We want each of these videos to be encouraging and full of laughter. Stay up to date on all our social media accounts so you can catch the next Families of First City video this week.
If you have a need, or know of anyone who has a need, please contact the church office at (850)433-0210. We want to do our part to try and meet the needs of our community. We miss you and we are praying everyone stays safe and remains healthy during this time. If you have any questions, please email us at

Stay safe,
