First North College Ministry is a family of college-aged young adults who share their journey of faith together. We meet at various times of the week for Bible study, worship and just hanging out to build healthy relationships. We have a passion to see others around us come to know the freedom that we have in Christ, and our lives are committed to sharing that message to those we love, live with, work with, study with, play sports with anyone God places in our path. Bring your questions, your doubts, your skepticism. We've all been there and we welcome all who seek the truth. "If you seek me with all your heart," declares the Lord, "I will be found by you."
