Welcome to First United Church
You’re invited to be part of a faith community that cares,  worships weekly  and is active during the week in strengthening community. Sunday worship is at 10:30 am in person and on-line anytime.  Doors open at 10:00 am and worship starts at 10:30 am. We also Live-stream to our Facebook page and You-Tube channel  each Sunday morning. Links for Memorial Services held at our site can be found on the “Memorials” page of this site.
The word “Lent” comes from an old English word for “lengthen,” and refers to the lengthening of those long-anticipated days of spring. With both the cross and the empty tomb approaching, communities of faith prepare themselves with forty days of fasting and reflection, all for the sake of more fully celebrating Easter’s song of spring when it comes. And so if Lent is about lengthening light, it’s also about broadening our hearts and preparing the way, making room for careful attention to what matters most. As the poet Mary Oliver puts it, living well involves attention, astonishment, and testimony
Jesus goes into the wilderness to find out more about who he is and what his work will be. We too are called to make space for God’s vision and presence in our lives and ministries. We begin with spiritual spring cleaning,
God of life, help us change our lives. Soften our hearts. Help us to repent, and to believe in your good
news of wild love and grace. Amen.
God calls us to create a community of faith where all are welcome and encouraged to participate fully. No matter where you are from, when you were born, how you self-identify, whom you love, or what you believe. We are a community that encourages free inquiry and searching. We are intentional about creating a safe space where diversity (such as age, sexual orientation, gender identity, health, ability, race, socio-economic status or belief) is valued, even when it challenges us. We do this by living God’s welcome, seeking to love as Jesus Christ loves and laughing with the Spirit along the way.
