Welcome, Epiphany--what is it? An epiphany is more than just an "aha" moment. It is, from the Greek epi meaning upon and phaneros which means visible apparent or manifest It is something that is revealed to you. Something where light shines and makes something clear and understood. It is a moment when you realize something that you haven't understood before. The season of Epiphany continues for seven weeks--until Lent begins on March 6th. 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. Office hours are Monday from 3 to 6 PM and Tuesday from 9 to 12.
Our adult faith formation classes are on Sunday morning at 9:30 AM 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!
We also offer a Friday Night Faith formation meeting twice a month for conversation and discussion of the on-line resources--with snacks and beverages! We are using The Bible Project and Overview Bible videos for reading through the Bible--we have lots of questions and discussion.
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. No matter who you are, or where you are on this journey called life and faith, you are welcome here.
