Lots of people these days are looking for peace and a sense of spiritual well being.  We very much welcome people wherever they are on their life and faith journey to First Church.  We offer great music, thoughtful sermons in worship, great programs for children (including a popular preschool), character-building opportunities for youth and a true engagement with the community in which we live.  Many of our people come from diverse church backgrounds or no church background at all.  Yet all find a home here, listening for the voice of the still-speaking God.  This is an inclusive, open and affirming Christian church worth your time.
