Welcome to
Rapid City First
We are a church that welcomes all, as family, to grow and serve in Christ.
No matter where you are in life, you’re welcome here! 
Located in downtown Rapid City, South Dakota, our church has roots that stretch to 1877 when Reverend Hugh M. Jones, a pioneer preacher, brought community members together to lift up the needs of God’s people. Today, we seek to meet people right where they are, with compassion, just as Jesus did.


9:00 Contemporary Worship
Contemporary worship music, a children’s sermon and a congregation that sings is sure to fill your bucket.
11:00 Traditional Worship
A traditional worship service featuring hymns with pipe organ and a choir.
