When you arrive at Columbia First, we will welcome you

with happy faces. We are glad that you choose to be with us.

Our goal is to make sure that you feel welcomed into our home

and know your way around our campus. If you have children,

we will make sure that you know they are safe and learning to love Jesus.

We want you to encounter God in any of our worship experiences

through music, singing, communion and biblically-based messages.
