Worship at First Church
We worship every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m, and all are always welcome! During the Covid 19 Pandemic, we monitor local case rates to determine whether we gather both in person and online, or whether we are strictly online as we try to lower community spread and keep our neighbors and loved ones healthy. Information on whether our sanctuary is open is available on our worship page: Please click here to see whether our sanctuary is open at this time.
At First Church we love our children and youth, and we have an active children’s ministry; children are included in all aspects of church life, and are important members of our church family! September through June, when we’re worshipping in person, 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.
