    Communion Distribution Pickup

    Sunday, Aug. 30  |  3:30 - 5:30 PM  |  Mission Valley Campus  |  P2 parking lot

    September 6 is Communion Sunday at First Church. Since the shut-down, we have offered safe, prepared communion elements for pick-up in our parking lot. You will be able to pick up communion elements on August 30 from 3:30-5:30 PM. Please enter the west driveway and turn into parking lot P2 where a pastor will offer you a blessing from a safe distance. You'll then be invited to pull forward to pick up the number of elements you will need for your household from a table all while remaining in your vehicle.

    "Shoes that Fit" Change Drive

    Sunday, Aug. 30 | 3:30 - 5:30 PM |  P2 Parking Lot


    Now more than ever, many families are under financial stress and unfortunately, children's feet have not stopped growing. We are once again asking you to bring your change or bills to donate to the "Shoes that Fit" annual change drive. This year your donation will provide new shoes to disadvantaged elementary school students at Cherokee Point Elementary. You may make a contribution online with a credit card or drop off change placed in a sealed ziplock bag on Sunday, August 30, between 3:30 and 5:30 PM when we will be distributing communion elements. This is a good charity for your children as well - any amount is appreciated.
