Erie First Assembly of God
Insideout
Children's ministries

InsideOut introduces children to Jesus; mentors them so they become more like Jesus; provides an atmosphere where they can worship Jesus; accepts them for whom God has created them to be; connects with other Christians their age; and trains them to serve one another.

Our children aren't just the future of the church; they're an active part of the church today!

    MISSIONS

    The ministry of missions is dedicated to the fulfillment of the Great Commission: "Go therefore into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Almost 60% of the world's population do not have an adequate witness of Jesus Christ. The task is enormous and must be met, "not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts."

     
           

    WOMEN'S MINISTRY

    We desire to develop the lives of women through the use of Biblical studies,community gatherings, small groups, mentoring relationships, prayer and serving others. One woman says, “Bible study is a highlight of my week. It gives me opportunity to meet and talk with other women and be encouraged and accountable in my faith.”

    MEN'S MINISTRY

    Our lives are a journey, an uphill climb, and our faith in God does not mean our path will always be smooth. When men connect with each other in life-changing ways, a powerful ripple effect touches families, workplaces, and the church. Men need to know there are others who share their struggles -- guys who can guide them through treacherous times, help them when they've fallen, and cheer for their successes.

     
           
    CHI ALPHA COLLEGE MINISTRY

    The transition between high school and college is a challenging one. Research reports that 88% of all students who were involved in their youth groups in high school fall away from God in their college years.  Chi Alpha attempts to bridge that gap and is determined to change that statistic.

     
           
    MEDIA PRODUCTIONS

    Erie First Assembly has long tradition of media and production excellence. The Media Production Department implements all the technical requirements surrounding set design, stage lighting, worship performance, sermon presentation and special events at Erie First.

      SMALL GROUPS

    Erie First's Small Groups are a primary avenue for connecting people and journeying together. We gather with our friends and neighbors to share our lives together and encounter the gospel in ways we can’t on our own. Here we study the truths of the Bible so we can love Jesus, love people, and love community. Whether you are new to Erie First, a regular attender or there is a Small Group waiting to get connected with you.
