Worship at First Church
We have a single worship service every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. (during July and August, service is at 9:00 a.m.). Children and youth of all ages are always welcome to worship with us. September through June, children are welcome to leave worship early to gather downstairs for their own classes, if they wish. On the first Sunday of every month, children stay upstairs for the entire service, and the congregation worships and celebrates communion as a joy-filled, lively, intergenerational community: one whole Body of Christ. Our First-Sunday worship is followed by a festive pot-luck brunch, often including all-church conversations on topics of importance to the congregation, crafts for kids, and seasonal activities for all.
Our Senior Choir sings most Sundays of the year; our Junior and Youth Choirs offer musical selections on special occasions and holidays.
At First Church, we understand that music, visual art, poetry and sacred silence can speak to our souls in ways that words sometimes can’t reach. Musicians, poets, readers, and visual artists are invited to work with the pastor and music staff to bring their unique gifts to worship.
In addition to Sunday morning worship, we offer a variety of special services throughout the year, including services for holy days such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve.
