The purpose of SERVE ministries is to provide opportunities to meet people at their point of need.

We use our God-given spiritual gifts and talents to transform our community and world

by making the realities of heaven the realities of earth.

Habitat gave 55 families a chance to own their own home last year and it is up to us to continue the tradition of providing deserving families with the opportunity to move into their own homes this year.  If we don’t do it, who will?  If you have any questions about our Habitat team, or you would like to join the team, please contact Neal Knapp

We have 2 teams going to Nicaragua in 2018! The first trip will be January 7-January 12. The second trip will be June 24-June 29.

These teams will minister to families in the village of Piedra Rajada (Broken Rock). Piedra Rajada is a village of 33 families that our

church has committed to sponsor. The majority of the community live in mud and straw homes, and were without running water and electricity. In 2017 our church raised funds and installed a well in the village so that families no longer have to walk 2 miles to fetch water.


Our church sponsorship also assists in funding a community school and health clinic, as well as a feeding

center for all the children in the community. Contact Adam Vernon for more details on Nicaragua.

At Cape Coral First we have discerned that our purpose is ‘To Make Disciples of Jesus for the Transformation of the World.’ To do that our Church Council, along with other church leaders, came together to put in place a vision plan for the next five years. This plan seeks to build from our strengths: worship, leadership, and small/study groups. It also seeks to transform our facilities so they are better equipped as venues for ministry as well as add new ways for our church to reach out into the community.
