Military Ministry

Central to Colorado Springs’ many military installations, First Pres brings Light and Life to our entire military community of active duty and retired personnel, veterans and their families. With a lead pastor, Tim McConnell, who served as an Army Chaplain and many members who have served and are currently serving, our church is fully engaged with the military life and its challenges.

Vets Talk

Thursday, September 23 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month, to share your questions and stories with our Military Ministry team. We're inviting all First Pres active-duty military, veterans, spouses and family members to swing by Samaritan Coffee at 225 to share a free cup of coffee and conversation at 225 N. Weber St.
