Are you new here?
We know that attending a new church for the first time can be intimidating. Our hope is that this page will give you a glimpse of what to expect and that you will feel welcomed to come and join us in worship.
As a church, we are committed to worshiping God with reverence and exuberance. Each service is meaningfully prepared to invite the congregation into a dialog with God and his Word that informs our living throughout the rest of the week. In the service, we recognize our brokenness, celebrate God's goodness and dig into what it means to live as the body of Christ in the world. A mix of both historical and contemporary worship practices throughout the service help us to connect the stories of our lives to the larger picture of
God's story and his mission in the world.
Street parking is available on any of the streets surrounding the church.

Families with children
At First Church, we value worshiping together as an inter-generational body. For this reason, children older than Kindergarten age remain in the sanctuary for the worship service.
Children ages 3-Kindergarten are invited to attend a special worship service called Children In Worship which is designed for their comprehension and participation. Each Sunday before the sermon, they exchange a blessing with the congregation and then are dismissed to their worship center downstairs. The children will return accompanied by their teacher to the main service before the closing songs. For children ages 0-3, nursery is available downstairs.
The safety of your children matters to us. Those who work with children are screened and trained to ensure safety. Parents are welcome to join their children in the nursery or Children in Worship.
After the worship service, we invite you to stick around for coffee and conversation in the back of the sanctuary. Sunday School classes for children pre-K through 12th grade are offered from 11-11:45 a.m., along with adult education. The first Sunday of each month (Sept - May) we have inter-generational activities instead of Sunday School; check the bulletin on first Sundays for more info.
During the week
There are many ways to be involved beyond the Sunday Service, including a number of groups that meet throughout the week. If you are looking for adult groups, ministries for children and youth or ways to serve, you can click on the connect or serve tabs for more information. For specific details, contact Director of Faith Formation, Bret Lamsma at email@example.com. You can also fill out a Connect Card, found in the pews, during the service to help us get in touch with you.
