Did you know that if you can’t make your preferred Sunday morning service, you can come Thursday Night for a brief but meaningful service and stay for a delicious dinner?
At First Church you can!
It's called Dinner Church and you are welcome to join us every week to connect with God through worship and with our community through food and conversation!

Thank you, Dave Wright!
The Staff-Parish Relations Committee, on behalf of the congregation, expresses it’s gratitude for the years of service that Dave Wright has given First Church as our Weekend Custodian. Dave’s continuing training as a mortician requires extra time in an internship position which necessitates his resignation. We pray God’s blessings on Dave in this new phase of his career.
From Deanna Nolder:
We are so grateful to this congregation for all the support you have given us during these last 4 months since Don’s stroke. Your prayers have uplifted us and brought healing and hope , your cards and visits have brightened so many days, and your offers of help have been amazing. We are deeply touched! Don will come HOME on March 31. Praise God!
