Reaching the Next Generation

From the youngest child in the nursery to the oldest member of the church, the ministries of First Alliance Church exist to change the world around us. We believe that children are vitally important to God and that teenagers are the church of tomorrow even now.

The BeaconBeacon WH

We call our youth ministry, "The Beacon." We believe that teens can hear God's call and follow him as fully devoted followers of Jesus. Jesus himself said, "I am the light of the world," and he calls his followers to reflect this light to others.  Read Complete Article


Helping People ... Know God, Love Life and Serve Others

This is what we believe that we are called to do. Each of the ministries below address one aspect of our vision.

Alpha WHThe Alpha Course

Alpha gives everyone the opportunity to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed, friendly setting. The Alpha course meets once a week for 6 weeks, and includes a one-day or weekend getaway.  Sessions begin with a meal, followed by a short talk and time to discuss what's been taught. During the discussion, everyone is welcome to contribute their opinions and  no question is considered  hostile or too simple.  Questions might include—Is there a God? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? Read Complete Article

Holy Spirit WHHoly Spirit Retreat

Since Jesus ascended to heaven and left his disciples behind, the work of the Holy Spirit has been vital to the mission of the church and to the vibrancy of each and every Christian. Loving life is not simply a matter of having all of our circumstances line up, but in having the joy of the Lord regardless of our circumstances. This is only possible through the presence and power of God's Spirit, so we take time to emphasize this with a day of solid teaching, prayer and hungering together after all that God wants to give us. Read Complete Article

Rice Bowl WHThe Rice Bowl

What began as a simple outreach idea at First Alliance Church, has turned into an exciting opportunity for our community to come together and help feed others in need. Working through a local food pantry called M.U.M. (Mid-County United Ministries) we have collected several thousand pounds of rice. This is now an annual event. Read Complete Article

Discipleship WHAdult Discipleship

The adult discipleship ministry of First Alliance Church is all about becoming better followers of Jesus Christ. More than just trying harder and even resting on wishful thinking, our discipleship ministry focuses on intentional learning in the context of loving relationships. Together, we want to grow in our knowledge of God and become more and more like Jesus. Read Complete Article

Church Planting WHChurch Planting

In addition to our own local community, the needs that we want to address extend throughout the Mid-Atlantic District (Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia and Delaware). One of the best ways to do this is to support the work of planting new churches, helping new congregations to rise up and make a difference among others. At any one time, there are several projects going on that we pray for and support in tangible ways. You can help us help them.   Read Complete Article

Worship WHWorship Ministry

Next to entering into a saving relationship with God, worshiping God is the most important thing that we can do. It is the absolute recognition that he is God and we are not. When we gather together in worship, we certainly get a blessing, but first we come to give glory and honor to God. He is the "audience of one" and we are all the performers. Read the Complete Article.

World Missions WHWorld Missions

A group of people that have been serving others faithfully for more than 125 years are Alliance missionaries. Since 1887, Alliance people have sought to reach the lost with the whole gospel—in their own communities and around the world. Today, the urgent need remains for devoted Jesus followers to take His light to the last missions frontiers—some of most spiritually dark places on earth and we are committed to help them serve others. Opportunities to establish and/or strengthen Christ’s Church around the world include service through traditional missions, vocational work, market place ministries, compassionate aid and short-term experiences.   Read Complete Article
