Thanks for visiting our website!  Tifton First is a fantastic church, full of great people.  We’d love to have you join us for worship or any of the many opportunities for discipleship, fellowship, service, or missions.  Look around the site and get a small glimpse of what we have going on.  If you’d like to join us personally, we’d love to have you.  With our three worship services, we are still one church, and we have a place that you can fit in and grow.  In the coming months, we hope to be live streaming our worship services, but for now, you can check them out here, or on our Facebook page, if you can’t join us in person.  If there’s anything we can do to help you get connected, don’t hesitate to contact me, by clicking on the link below.

Chip Grantham, Senior Pastor
