We are a community of people from different walks of life who gather in Christian love to celebrate the workings of God in our lives and in our communities.

Gather with friends in the middle of the day!

First Church continues its Wednesday Midday Gathering program in-person and some via Zoom.
If you can't make it to our event in-person we hope that you make plans to join via Zoom video conferencing and enjoy the company of friends while hearing from a variety of speakers we've line up for this season. Most of our programs will begin at 12:15 PM.
