Vancouver First Church has been a part of this community since 1948, when the church facility was originally built. Even though we are part of a global family as a Church of the Nazarene at our core is a desire to be a community church meeting the needs of people in our neighborhood. A number of the families who attend the church live in the area.
We are a family friendly church, we welcome people of all ages and enjoy providing special programs for children. We are also a church that welcomes people with disabilities, both physical and mental. VFCN is a welcoming congregation, informal, and relational. Our gatherings on Sundays and at other occasions are about people as much as they are about anything else. Sunday services are a balanced blend of both formal worship and informal community togetherness – coffee time happens after the service every week.
As a church community we recognize that many people are interested in spirituality but not necessarily in church. It is our goal to provide a place and space for people to safely explore what it means to be a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. We welcome those who are interested in embarking on a faith journey together.
