If you are interested in joining First Church or in exploring the possibility, we encourage you to come to Sunday morning worship and speak to a pastor. We offer a new member class twice a year —  once in March and again in November.


Membership can be undertaken through any of the following:

  • A confession or reaffirmation of faith.
  • A letter of transfer or certification from another Christian church.
  • Confirmation (for young people who learn more about Christianity and the church before joining).


In the United Church of Christ, we honor baptisms from other Christian churches. In instances when individuals have not been baptized this sacrament may be added to the new member service.

We celebrated and welcomed new members on Sunday June 5, 2022!
