While our in-person worship is canceled for at least the next eight weeks, we are sending our worship bulletins and sermons via email. They will be posted on the Home page of this website. We are also "zooming" worship and offering a link to the service via your web browser. Our Lenten series is entitled: Entering the Passion of Jesus: Picturing Ourselves in the Story The events of Christ's Passion, which take place during the last week of Jesus' life, are important to our faith journey as well as our identity as followers of Jesus. Throughout the six weeks of Lent we will "freeze-frame" moments in Holy Week, putting ourselves in the picture and thus "Entering" the Passion of Jesus. This series, created by Marcia McFee, PhD Professor of Worship and Curator of Worship Design Studio, is based on the book of the same name by Amy-Jill Levine, PhD,Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies, Vanderbilt. The video series for this book is being offered free of charge at http://my.amplifymedia.com/ Please check it out.
First Church is a progressive congregation and officially an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. Please visit for conversation during office hours (Tuesday 9-12), or join us for worship at 11:00 AM. The pastor is available at your convenience if you contact her at email@example.com
Our worship service is casual and comfortable. 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 along with 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.
