No preregistration is required! Arrive any time. Please bring a pair of gloves to pick up trash, and check in at the registration table.

New Member Sunday(s)
In late April, we will be receiving new members into the First Church community! Becoming a member means entering into a covenant, a mutual promise, to love and support one another in our life of faith. Membership is a commitment to be an active part of First Church, and to offer your gifts of time, talent, and financial support. Membership is also a commitment the church makes to care for you. We will receive new members during worship on either (or both) Sundays April 22 or 29. Please let Jane know if you are interested in membership, or have questions.
First Church Gallery: Art work in plein air
First Gallery has a unique show (although all our shows are unique!). Kay Raabe is exhibiting her work at First Church Gallery for the first time. She often paints plein air (outdoors) in the St. Croix River valley, North Shore of Minnesota, and locations in the Rocky Mountains, with her close friend, Susan Horn. Susan has previously exhibited landscapes and abstracts at First Gallery. Their friendship has influenced each other’s work over time. Both artists studied art at the University of Minnesota and have extended their studies in separate but complementary ways.
