Counters are urgently needed: The church is in need of counters. Counters take the weekly receipts, organize and count them, and have them deposited in the bank according to a standardized procedure. Training is provided. This is an ideal volunteer position for someone who has limited time during the week, and is also extremely dependable. Please contact the church office or Finance Chair Ken Carbonetti to volunteer or find out more about this important ministry.
Grace Gathering September 13: Celebrate the beginning of the program year: As summer comes to a close, we look forward to our annual Grace Gathering celebration. Grace Gathering is on Sunday, September 13, and marks the beginning of First Church’s program year. It is a congenial fellowship time when we reconnect with one another, share summer experiences, and learn about upcoming church classes and events. This event has information for all First Church members and friends. A fellowship breakfast in Wesley Hall from 9:15-10:15am opens the event. Information and signups about church groups and activities will be available.
On Grace Gathering day, the worship schedule returns to its standard times: 8:10am and 10:25am. Childcare will be offered throughout the morning in the nursery for infants and toddlers. Rainbow Room child care for older children is available after the Children’s Word during the second worship service.
Sanctuary Flower openings: The flower signup sheet on the south wall of Wesley Hall has many open Sundays. If you would like to commemorate a special date or beautify our worship time, please sign up.
