For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Here are just some of the ways you can serve in the community with Pekin First

ROC Kids

We “Reach Our Community” through ROC Kids by building relationships with the children at Pekin Housing.  We enjoy playing games, doing crafts, teaching lessons, field trips and a variety of activities each week.


Pekin First’s Accessible Transportation Ministry provides rides to church events and more!  We offer a fully assessable 15 passenger bus to transport people of all ages.  If transporting people interests you, consider becoming a driver for those in need!

Media Tech Team

The Media Tech Team are the people that work behind the scenes in the sound booth. This team operates the sound board, sets up sound equipment, is in charge of the presentation computer, and works with the livestream during worship.  This team also volunteers during weddings, funerals, and a variety of church events.  If you enjoy technology and learning new things this could be a great area for you!

Snack Packs

Pekin First is passionate about feeding the children in our community through the Snack Pack program.  If you enjoy completing hands on tasks you should try this ministry.  Hundreds of bags of snacks are assembled for children that are handed out at schools for those in need.

Funeral Dinner Ministry

Do you like to help people? Do you like to cook or bake?  Then don’t miss this opportunity to help a grieving family with the funeral dinner meal program.  We also need volunteers to help with setting up, serving, and clean up after the meal.

ROC House Ministry

(ROC= Reaching Our Community)
The ROC House ministry provides spiritual guidance and life changing care for a family in need.  If you are good with tools and projects join the ROC House team.

Welcome Team

More than a smiling face!  Greeters are the first impression of Pekin First.  If you are good at hospitality, enjoy meeting new people, and helping them find their way throughout the building this is the place for you!
