As a smaller and diverse Christian community, relationships are important. One can see the importance of relationships in the worship service when Godâ€™s peace is passed between members.
Conversations continue in the time of community-building after the worship service and are extended in shared mission activities. This past year, the congregation also shared a picnic with members of the community gardens who plant, till, and harvest their produce on one of two church properties.
Also, a festive congregational meal occurred in the Advent/Christmas season. Relationships are important to the people of First Church. And there is always room for making new friends.
