The basis of all service is truly in serving GOD. When you give of your time, you are the church.

"For as in one body, we have many members. And all the members do not have the same function. So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of the other." (Romans 12:4-5 NRSV)

In becoming an integral part of the First Church community and culture on a deeper level as you engage working with our staff, congregants and community, please observe the following commitment to First Church UCC:

We ask that you: Support the mission, vision and values of the church.

Our First Church Mission statement is:

"We emulate Jesus by-
Expressing love radically,
Worshipping joyfully with purpose,
Exposing and fighting injustice
-as we grow spiritually together."

Our Core Values:

"Because we believe all people are beloved children of God, we welcome them into the full life, worship, ministry, fellowship and leadership of this congregation.
We do this without regard to age, race, ethnicity, or national origin; physical, mental, emotional ability or disability; gender, marital status, gender identity, or sexual orientation; socio-economic background or circumstance, political affiliation or immigration status."
This includes areas such as supporting leadership decisions without criticism and gossip in the spirit of ownership, teamwork and efficiency. Your lack of support in this area can harm the growth and spiritual path of other team members and our overall mission.

We ask that you: empower one another to express the Christ within. We encourage one another to walk our talk.

We ask that you: agree to honor your commitments and where commitments cannot or have not been met, renegotiate or make amends.

We ask that you: contact Jerry Heikens or the church at 602-258-6891 as quickly as possible in case of an emergency. Webster defines emergency as "an unexpected occurrence or situation demanding immediate action".

We ask that you: honor the confidentiality of your role as a Volunteer in this ministry. Confidential is defined as; "done or communicated in confidence, told in secret, entrusted with the confidence of another". There are things you may see or hear which are of a very confidential nature, please be respectful of each individual's right to privacy.

We ask that you: as a valued and appreciated volunteer representative, cooperate in support of the ministry by not expressing dissatisfaction to the staff, other congregants and board members. In the event a situation arises that is a cause for concern, please direct your questions and concerns to the Senior Outreach & Development Director. If this person is unavailable, the Senior Pastor is an appropriate staff person to listen to your concerns.

We ask that you: Hold the space for modeling the principles the way Christ did before us. We thank you for sharing your God given gifts and time with this ministry.
