New Ways to Share Church Fellowship

While the “old” phone number still works and allows you to listen to First Church’s weekly services, the new Zoom Meeting phone number allows you to not only listen to our Sunday 11 am service, but also to join either our Wednesday noon or Wednesday 7:30 service and share your inspiration with others. Please join us in our Zoom meetings. You may join them either by phone or by computer (or both).
