Food Pantry – Open Wednesday April 24 – 2:30 to 4:30

This Lenten season, instead of giving up something, why not GIVE something. Our Food Pantry is in need of support. Click here for more information and decide if this mission is one you could support.

Each month, we will be suggesting two items that are most needed for our families seeking assistance. April items: Catsup & Dish Detergent. If you are able to provide any of these items, we would be very grateful. ANY non-perishable food, personal care item, or monetary gift that is donated is greatly appreciated and will help us to continue this great mission of First Church. Place items in the Mission Corner located in the Narthex.

“If you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry, and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.” – Isaiah 58:10


Adult Christian Education Committee Announces New Class

The Adult Christian Education Committee (ACE) wants to make sure you are aware of the wonderful opportunity we have to study with Pastor Ron on Sunday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 for 6 weeks, beginning the week after Easter, April 7 through May 12. The book he will be leading is called “The Third Day- Living the Resurrection” by Tom Berlin and covers the Resurrection experiences of Mary Magdalene, Thomas, Peter, and the men on the road to Emmaus, Paul, and Jesus. We hope many people in our congregation will take advantage of this chance to grow in faith and find a way to keep the joyful experience of Easter alive. The class will also be offered on Tuesday evenings on Zoom from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. Books are available for sale in the office, but one could just come to the class to listen and learn from the discussion and the sharing of fellow Christians. Click here for more information on this new offering.
