dream teams



A Dream Team is a group of incredible people that have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them. From creating a comfortable environment by serving in First Impressions, to leading the next generation to Jesus by serving in Student Ministries, or crafting a dynamic experience with the A/V Team – we are a group that forcefully advances the Kingdom of God.
To find out more about our Dream Teams here at First City Church and how to serve, join us for one of our quarterly First City Family Nights.
