Gather. Listen. Speak. Act.
First Church is a progressive Christian community that gathers to listen, speak and then act, with a spirit of compassion, justice and stewardship.
At First Church, we care about each other and the world. We look for God in the scriptures and everyday life. We think and pray and break bread together. We ask questions that don’t have easy answers. We serve our neighbors. We raise our voices about the justice issues of our day. We proudly belong to the United Church of Christ. We think diversity is a beautiful gift from God and we do our best to truly welcome everyone. Worship is at the core of our life together. Join us at 10 a.m. each Sunday.
