FIRST CHURCH PROFILE
Please read our First Church Profile! The Profile was developed by the First Church Pastoral Search Committee with input from our entire congregation through surveys and discussions. Thank you! The Profile’s purpose is to introduce First Church to Pastoral Candidates.
FOOD FOR FELLOWSHIP
Please consider making a contribution of some tasty treats for Fellowship Hour. Choose a convenient Sunday and sign up to treat us all! You can drop your contributions off in the Parish House kitchen before worship, and the deacons will spread the table for Fellowship
Worship begins at 10 a.m. in the sanctuary and is live-streamed via Zoom. The service also is posted to the church’s Facebook page, usually within 24 hours. Windows are open and air purifiers are in use. Masks are optional.
A typical service includes prayers, hymns, choral and/or instrumental anthems, reading from scripture, and a sermon.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. All are welcome to participate.
BIBLE STUDY WITH PASTOR JILL
The Wednesday Bible study gathers weekly at the Parish House at 1:00 p.m. for about 90 minutes. It’s fine to participate whenever you can. Please let Pastor Jill know in advance if you want to use Zoom so we are logged in for you.
At the beginning of each month, First Church publishes a newsletter called First Church Connection. Click the links below to read the more current ones.
