About Family First

Family First exists to build up families as we share life together. We sponsor family events that strengthen both fellowship among families walking in multiple stages of life, as well as knowledge of what a Christ-filled home looks like. From marriage conferences to weekly Sunday school classes, Family First desires to pour into you. Whether you are recently married without children, or seasoned parents experiencing an empty nest, we are here for you. We invite you to come join the fun, and be part of our family!

Connection Groups

In order to stay connected with the many different family-types that make up First Assembly, we offer a generational approach to our fellowship activities through four specific connection groups: Young, Married, No Kids (early 20s), Young, Married, With Kids (20s-30s), Mid-Life Families (30s-40s), and Empty Nest Couples (55 and over). Leadership couples in each connection group host events every month where folks can get to know one another and share advice. We invite you and your family to come be part of the fellowship and encounter Jesus in a relaxed yet intentional environment. Groups also stay connected through social media and email. Click here to get connected on Facebook (navigate to the “Groups” tab in the left column) or visit one of the Connection Groups on Facebook below. If you do not have a Facebook account, you may email Jeweli Mallory, at jmallory@famfm.com to be added to the Connection Group email list instead! Just include your name, your spouse’s name, and your children’s names (and their ages), along with what group you desire to be a part of.
