Every Tuesday at 9AM our Community Services are open to assist members of our Community.
No man is an island
entire of itself,
every man is a piece
of the Continent,
a part of the main.

We have partnered with Metropolitan Ministries to provide a free community meal every Tuesday night at our Community Service Center at 6pm.
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 1:2. It is God's desire that each of us may have an abundant life (John 10:10). The Greek word He used for life is "zoe", which means the absolute fullness of life, a life that is active, satisfying, and filled with joy. This abundance is reflected in all parts of our being: physical, mental, emotional, social, as well as spiritual. God has lovingly given us divine principles to follow, beginning at the Creation of this world, and we are called to receive the benefits of living these principles. We believe our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and we must care for it intelligently so we can fully experience God's presence and discern His will for our lives. By adopting the most healthful lifestyle, reduced to eight simple principles, we can begin to experience an abundant life today while also making a positive impact in the lives of those around us.
At Tampa First we endeavor to teach these principals through programs such as Creation Health and Best Weigh and our newest program the Full Plate Diet. We are seeking other health initiatives to help our community such as health screenings, participating with blood donations, and community health programs. May God's abundant life be yours today!
VBS is a wonderful way we reach out to the community. Keep checking back for this summer's VBS program info.
