First Church enjoys offering several all-church meals throughout the year.
Dine Around Town: Three or four times a year, First Church folks gather at one (or more) restaurants and enjoy a meal together. This not only provides great dining and fellowship, it also supports community businesses!
Dinners for Nine: Everyone gathers in the Parish House for appetizers, and then they are split up into smaller groups (about nine people) to have dinner and dessert in host homes. Host homes offer the main course, and guests supply the rest of the meal.
Rally Sunday Picnic: Is offered after church on Rally Sunday at either Beech Hill Farm or Gould Hill Farm (alternates annually between the two locations). Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share.
End-of-Year Barbecue: Is offered after church on Youth Sunday. The Senior High Youth Group grills hamburgers and hotdogs for a small donation toward their summer mission trip.
Waffle Church is held the first Sunday each month. All are invited! Youth group members cook waffles for families at 8:30 am, children and adults eat together, and the youth director shares a story, a grace, and a song with the children. Come join the fun and fellowship!
The Know Your Neighbor Project invites you to First Church’s First ever Valentine’s Day Brunch and Dance on February 12 during Fellowship hour! All are welcome to participate in one or both activities.
Please bring a brunch item to share, and shoes other than boots. Best are street shoes with a slight heel and no rubber soles. Please consider participating even if you don’t bring a dance partner!
You will get an entry level dance lesson for the Viennese Waltz, which is one of the most uplifting and easiest to learn ballroom dances. And then it is all about having fun, dancing and turning to a combination of live music as well as some of the most famous Waltzes of Richard Strauss and other composers.
Please join us and spread the word!
