This place has been where I've grown to know and love God more than any other place. It is my church. It's how I am part of the Church. It's where God parts the clouds and shines on his people. The staff is very dedicated to serving the people of Kenmore. The volunteers are so selfless in their care. It's changed my life.
The thing that makes FG so great is the wonderful volunteers that give so much of themselves to help the students.
I was a student when it first opened and now volunteer when available. The organization has impacted my life and has shaped me into the person I am today. The organization has dedicated volunteers who take time to invest in various programs that is offered at the center.
I was a student at First Glance before I became a leader. I have been involved with First Glance since 2002. It's been a blessing working with First Glance. The leaders and student leaders that I work with work so hard to make great things happen. Will everyone that is involved with FG does amazing job! Thanks to GOD for his work. When I went to Costa Rica mission trip this summer I preached to people that are pregant at teenage and teens that do drugs, and I think to myself I wish they had a First Glance there ro help them with the struggles they go through, to lead them into Christ. :) I'm pleased what God is doing in this organization.
I am a volunteer at First Glance! Love First Glance that is changing teen/young adult lives & the community for the better & for Christ! I have volunteered for a lot of places in my life but non as loving, caring & compassionate as this group...staff & volunteers that give back in so many ways...& even opening up their homes!
First Glance is a group of enthusiatic, passionate & awesome individuals who give of their time (leaders & the volunteers) reaching out with their hearts and God's love, in a committment to the youth of Kenmore. The youth can come and be accepted with unconditional love & where they are in a safe non-threatening environment. Everything the leaders & volunteers do is a positive impact in training these youth to want to be better citizens, and helping them to grow to bring up their children to make a better community in Kenmore. They are making a difference in the lives of teenagers, and in the Kenmore community being changed for God's Glory. They are giving them hope & direction thru caring for each teen that comes thru the doors. The staff of volunteers are also giving them a chance to get off the streets, and also teaching them how to make better choices in their lives & the opportunities to set goals in their lives. Karen Freeman & Nicole Beck have so much contagious enthusiam and are really passionate for this ministry of changing lives for Christ!
I am a volunteer at First Glance in the Young Adult program. As a volunteer, I love the relationships that I have built with the young people and other volunteers who are a part of our program. First Glance offers young people a safe haven. Just a week or so ago, one of the Young Adults mentioned that we are his family. At First Glance we are family. We accept one another for who we are and support each other through the good and bad times. I love this organization and wish every community had a First Glance.
First Glance does a great job of reaching out to the youth of the community by providing a place of refuge and fun for those that need a place where they can trust in people who lead them in the direction of knowing Christ.
First Glance is a place where all are accepted and loved. Lasting friendships and relationships are built. As a volunteer, I feel very much a part of the family. There is geunine love and care between voluteers and students.
I love first glance. It's such a great place filled with fun compassionate individuals
I have been volunteering with First Glance for over 7 years now. In that time I have seen great things come from them. Everything from individual lives being transformed to the entire community as a whole. I'm thankful to be a part of such a great organization and am excited for the future.
I've been a staff volunteer for a little under a month but before this I was a student leader and spent a lot of my free time here at first glance. The leaders are all amazing I've connected and became very close with a few of them. The programs its self helps a lot of teens that walk through the doors! Love this place!
