Welcome, We are in full summer swing here at First Church! Our First Testament Women sermon series is challenging us to look at our scriptures and recognize the effects of Biblical interpretation on our current world situations. Sarah & Hagar, Tamar, Susanna & the Elders, Deborah & Jael, Jeptha's daughter, the woman with oil & the Shunamite woman, Rahab and Vasti, and Delilah and Jezebel all offer us insights that define our ways of being in the daily encounters of our culture. It's a fascinating look at how God moved in the lives of these women, some considered "bad girls of the Bible", and how that movement resounds in our own lives today. God moves us ever onward to new ways of seeing and being in our world. Please join us.
First Church is a progressive congregation, active in social justice issues, and officially an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. Please visit for conversation during office hours, or join us for worship at 11:00 AM (10 AM beginning June 16th). Office hours are Tuesday from 9 to 12--but the pastor is available at your convenience if you contact her.
Our adult faith formation classes are on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM (until June 16th) at the church. Currently we are using Brian McLaren's We Make the Road by Walking. This text takes us through Jesus's life and connects the First and Second Testaments to our lives today. We are having lively discussions!
Our worship service is casual and we serve communion on the first Sunday of the month. Come as you are--all are welcome at the table. We serve gluten-free bread and grape juice and wine by intinction or occasionally in the pews. Children are always welcome and although we do not have a formal Sunday School program, there are always activities that connect our younger worshipers to our faith.
No matter who you are, or where you are on this journey called life and faith, you are welcome here.
