Traditional. Relevant. Inclusive.
Filled with powerful music and uplifting energy. Whether at 8:45 or 11:00, you will find a great worship experience here at FirstChurch.
Religion has been the catalyst for attempting to answer life’s BIG questions, such as ‘Why are we here?’ or ‘What does it all mean?’ Just because we live in the modern age does not mean that these questions are answered by science, or medicine or psychology. We turn to scripture, tradition, experience and reason to not just find the answers, but also to live with these questions differently. Join us as we explore Mindfulness & the Big Questions over the next few weeks.
