About our Church

Pastor’s Welcome

Welcome to our website! We are glad you are visiting with us. Whether you are visiting for the first time or if you are a longstanding member, we invite you to seek a spiritual home here and get involved. This website contains a wealth of resources and information about our ministries. What it doesn’t tell you, is how the spirit will continue to be moving here in the future… the story that hasn’t been written yet – the story we will write together.


As one of our region’s oldest churches, First Church has been calling people to worship in this community since 1713. Today we are in another season of transition. This is a great time to get involved and to get to know the congregation. We are asking important questions about our life and ministry together:


Who are we now?

Who is our neighbor?

Who is God calling us to become?


Timeless questions, you are invited to help us to answer. Join us for worship, join our community, join us in the journey!
