ADULTS at First Melissa

We're here to serve you, with ministries designed to help strengthen your faith, enrich your journey, and encourage you as you grow in Christ.  

These ministries can also be a great place of service - an opportunity to "put feet to your faith." If you would like information on serving in one of these areas, please email .  We would love to help you connect!

Adult Small Groups

Small groups are the heart of connection. It’s where we get to know and care for one another, and it’s where all of our vision expressions come together: Connecting Authentically as we Equip Continuously to Reach Intentionally to introduce others to Jesus as we Live Passionately for His glory. Small groups are where big things happen! For information on specific small groups, CLICK HERE.

Wednesday Evenings

Wednesday evenings are also a great way to connect, with something for everyone as we continue the journey of connecting authentically, equipping continuously, reaching intentionally, and living passionately - all for HIS glory. Activities generally change seasonally, and at various times include classes, worship services, and/or fellowship activities. For information on our Wednesday evening activities, CLICK HERE.


“Connect Authentically” is one of First Melissa's expressions of our vision as a church. We want to be a church where people genuinely know and care for one another. Our Connections ministry team can help you connect with people and places of service that can be a part of your journey as you Equip Continuously, Reach Intentionally, and Live Passionately. 

Men's Ministry

Our vision is to see a biblical awakening among men, and to empower leaders to fulfill Jesus’ commission of disciples making disciples who make disciples. Our mission is to create an environment for men to be challenged in their relationship with Jesus Christ, helping to glorify Him in the home, workplace, and elsewhere, and to provide an opportunity for men to fellowship, worship, share and encourage each other.

Women's Ministry

First Melissa’s Women’s Ministry is devoted to connecting women to Jesus Christ. Our mission is to connect with one another, grow, belong, and be transformed through the Word of God and life-giving relationships. For information on specific Women's Ministry happenings, CLICK HERE.  


At First Melissa, prayer is not something we do, it is part of who we are. We know that prayer changes lives and we are grateful for the opportunity to unite with you in prayer, asking God for guidance, hope, and healing. 

S.A.L.T. (Senior Adults Living Triumphantly)

The mission of S.A.L.T., for adults age 65 and over, is to ensure that seniors at First Melissa have what they need to feel vitally involved in the ministries of our church. Our ministry provides support in areas including spiritual guidance, compassion, care, and assistance when needed. 

Emergency Response Team

First Melissa's Emergency Response Team is a group of volunteers who, in cooperation with local law enforcement, are trained and equipped to provide safety and security for our congregation and staff. Our mission is to develop a strategic foundation of security and protection against known and unknown threats to our church so that the work of Jesus Christ can be done for His glory and in His name.

They Emergency Response Team has developed effective guidelines and procedures to secure our facilities so that all who attend First Melissa may do so in an environment that is warm, welcoming, and safe.

E-HOP Fitness

E-HOP (Energize!-Hour of Power) is a fitness fellowship group that encourages active and healthy lives so we may bring glory to God through serving others. We pray, work out to uplifting music, enjoy fellowship, and have lots of fun! We collect a small monthly fee, most of which goes to charities and needs in our community. You’ll get a great workout, make some new friends, and give back! 

Support Ministries


Battling cancer and other devastating diseases can be overwhelming… certainly for the patient, but for caregivers as well. Our Hope Cancer Support Ministry focuses on sharing the love and grace of Jesus with patients, family members and caregivers fighting cancer and other medical challenges.


Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered 12-step recovery program. The open meetings of CR will convene on a weekly basis, providing support for individuals seeking recovery from a wide range of challenges. These meetings are open to the community. Weekly Step Study meetings are also available. CLICK HERE for more information about CELEBRATE RECOVERY. 


Career Assistance Ministry serves those who are seeking new employment opportunities.  We provide professional advice and instruction as we walk alongside you through three main areas of career transition: resume writing, job searches and interview coaching. 

 THE MOMCO (formally MOPS)

The MOMCO believes in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms join together. That’s why we rally women to come together and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time. Whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seasoned mom, you are welcome here!
