First Church is excited to host its annual Carillon Concert Series on Thursdays this July at 6 pm! Bring a lawn chair, bring a blanket, bring a picnic, bring some friends and grab a spot on the rock wall or the labyrinth and enjoy a free concert from our Stearns Carillon. Light refreshments will be provided. Our carillon concerts happen rain or shine – if the weather doesn’t cooperate, patrons can enjoy the carillon music from the comfort of our Meeting House pews. A cancellation will only happen in the event of a thunderstorm.
