Welcome Visitors                                   


WELCOME to First Church. Worship is the starting point for our ministries and missions. It is where we are encouraged, inspired, and moved to live lives that reflect God’s love. There are many opportunities for worship and service at First Church and we hope you find your place here with us.

The Sunday Early Service held at 8:30 a.m. is in West Vestry. This is a small, intimate, traditional communion service with piano and cantors and is shorter than the later 10:45 a.m. service. The minister preaches the same sermon at both Sunday morning services. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is served every week. Once a month this service is in the Sanctuary with our Chamber Chorale.

The Sunday late service held at 10:45 a.m. is in the Sanctuary. Communion is served on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month. A liturgical-based service, our Convergent or Blended-Traditional worship has high church and contemporary elements with music from our newly renovated pipe organ, instrumentalists, choirs and once a month our praise team musicians and brass groups.

Members of the church will be at each door to greet you and provide directions to the nursery for your children, or to direct you into the West Vestry for the 8:30 service or the Sanctuary for the 10:45 service.

Ushers will provide you an Order of Worship bulletin and show you to a seat or you may seat yourself where you feel comfortable. During the late service we have a special “Children’s Time” when all of the children are invited to come forward to join the pastor in the Nave at the front of the Sanctuary to hear a special message just for them. You are also invited to Coffee Hour between services at 9:30 in West Vestry.
