Ways to get Involved

There are many ways to become involved at First Church. As you become more familiar with our church, some of the opportunities to choose from are shown below.

If you haven’t already done so, you can sign up for the monthly email publication of The Church Window, which is a good way to see all that’s going on at First Church.

Or you can also sign up for Rev. Kevin’s weekly message, In the Spirit, formerly News and Notes from the Pastor’s Desk.

Fellowship

There are numerous groups, large and small, who gather to experience social time together, build connections, and strengthen friendships. Anyone is always welcome and their activities are varied.

Education

First Church offers Sunday School for our children, Confirmation Classes for our youth, and Book Club discussions at the Pastor’s Class with Rev. Kevin.

Music

First Church has a wonderful music program that is an integral part of our worship service. The Adult Chancel Choir and the Sabbath Bells adult hand bell choir rehearse on Wednesday evenings. The Cherub and Carol choirs for children practice on Sundays after worship and sing occasionally in our worship service.

Please contact Adam Peithmann to discuss your interest in any of the choir groups.

Mission and Service

We work together to serve and support numerous local and global mission projects throughout the year. First Church hosts classes for the English for New Americans program and frequently interacts with the students in evening conversations, occasional pot luck suppers, and joint projects.

Membership

As you become more comfortable in worshiping with us, you may want to explore becoming a member of First Church. New Member Orientation events are held twice per year and hosted by the Membership Team.

If you are interested, please contact Rev. Kevin to learn about the next event.

ONA Team thanks everyone for responding to the Survey!

We had an overwhelming response to the ONA Survey to gauge where we are in the ONA process.  The ONA Team will be meeting over the next few weeks to analyze the results and report to the First Church Congregation.

Relax and Reflect in the Memory Garden

A vision only a year ago, our First Church's Memory Garden is blooming!  Please stop by to relax and reflect on loved ones who have passed before us.  It is located outside the Chapel entrance.  

Many thanks for everyone's contributions and to the volunteers who had the vision to make this happen.
