First UMC uses the Church Community Builder (CCB) platform to help foster better communication and interaction with people interested in our church and within our faith family. We are calling the CCB platform myFirst and are excited to invite our members to join myFirst!

myFirst replaces the old system (AccessACS and the Church Life app) and we hope that this page will help you better understand and connect via CCB. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Larry Resch at or via the contact form below.
