Living Stones – Sunday, Oct. 22

October is kickoff month for the capital campaign, “Living Stones.” We’ll be asking for commitments on October 22.


The ovens will be on for the celebration potluck on October 22 right after worship. Any and all are welcome! Let us know on the sign-up sheet (or email the office) what you will be bringing.

Plant Sale and More

Ease outdoor gardening withdrawal by picking up an indoor plant to nourish and enjoy during the cold weather months that are fast approaching. On Oct. 22 before and after worship there will be plants, fall garden decor (including gourds, Chinese lanterns and broom grass) and various treats available for purchase through a donation to Community Emergency Service. Among the offerings  will be beautiful violets in vintage pots, a lovely jade plant, a large scheflera and various ivies and smaller plants, all easy to grow! Green plants can enhance your work space and also make great hostess or birthday gifts. Food items will include Halloween sugar cookie cutouts and caramel apples. All funds raised will support the Home Delivery Program at St. Paul’s Home, a monthly food shelf outreach involving First Church volunteers.

2nd Hour October 29: Visiting Israel/Palestine

Three of our church members, Bill Lindberg, Daniel Romero and Kris Felbeck, will be presenting a 2nd Hour on Oct. 29 in the library, immediately after worship. The topic will be their respective trips to Israel in 2016 and 2017, as seen through a Palestinian lens. They are planning on allocating more time for questions and conversation than on the formal presentation. Please plan to come to hear and talk about the current Israeli Palestinian situation as Bill, Daniel and Kris have experienced it.

Art in Pilgrim Hall


The lovely photographs hanging in Pilgrim Hall are the work of Steve Zwicky, a longtime friend of the FCC community. Steve’s pictures will be on display in the First Church Gallery through November.
