At First Church, we believe that the journey of faith is one of lifelong learning – questioning and probing our doubts and certainties so we might hear the God who still speaks to the world today.
Through the course of the year, we meet together in various settings to explore our faith through book groups, discussions, DVD-series and bible study.

Just as they have in the past, names continue to be of great importance, because they shape so much of our identity. As David S. Slawson once wrote, “names are an important key to what a society values.” If this is true, what kind of value can be given to an individual without a name, as is the case with so many female figures in the Bible? Facilitated by Antigone Lowery, Associate Minister.
Starting October 23, we being a new 6-week study of the Pursuit of Wisdom: Insights from Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.
It is commonly understood that the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes contain a number wise sayings, which bring awareness to many of life’s challenges. At their core, the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes remind us that we should never become complacent in our pursuit of wisdom, which serves to help us address all that we face in life, while seeking to grow closer to God and others.
