Worship

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.

Over the next several weeks in worship, we will be focusing our attention on the Eucharist, the Holy Meal of Christ, our celebration of Holy Communion. The Eucharist is the central theme in our theology as a Church; it is inviting, convicting and forgiving all in a mysterious unity. In the Eucharist, we can meet Christ and we can be transformed into life-changed disciples. We will be celebrating Holy Communion on June 24 (and the sacrament of Baptism on each of these Sundays as well).
