a family with a rich heritage
Cape First Church began in 1920, when four people got together to pray in a home on Main Street in Cape Girardeau. The powerful prayer meetings created growth—so much so that the church moved to four different locations in the first nine years. In 1941, construction on the main sanctuary on South Sprigg Street was completed.
Never shying away from hard work, and doing whatever had to be done to save the lost, the church continued to grow and another move was made to the then newly developed area of North Mount Auburn Road.
Today we have our main location on Silver Springs Road in Cape Girardeau, and extensions in Marble Hill, Sikeston, and a House of Hope location in south Cape Girardeau. Cape First Church is a family with a rich heritage. Everything we enjoy now is due to our God, and the faithfulness of pioneers who’ve paid and paved a way for us to continue to fulfill the great commission…to go into all the world and preach the gospel.
