First Pres Church is committed to nurturing people in all walks of life by building and supporting life-transforming communities that worship, send and serve. The goal of small communities is that, through life-on-life relationships, we would become more like Jesus. In the context of these groups, people are prepared to impact lives for Christ - to join God in his mission of changing our neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, the city of Colorado Springs and the broader world. Check out the many opportunities to get connected in a small community!
