It Takes A Village

Event Date: 
May 3, 2011 - 1:11pm

 
For those who grew up in the Church, it wouldn’t take much effort to conjure up the memory of a Sunday School teacher or Youth Leader who made an impact on their life. First Congregational Church is blessed to have a valuable crew of volunteers who bring alive the stories of the Bible, share Jesus’ message of love, model Christ-like behavior, and build bonds of relationships.

May is Sustainable Travel to Worship Month

Event Date: 
April 26, 2011 - 10:15am

 
As we have for the past six years, our church will highlight and celebrate sustainable, car-limited travel to worship during the month of May. Our goal is that a high proportion of all trips to worship use car-limited transportation modes such as carpooling, biking, walking, skating, riding the bus, sharing a taxi with others – anything other than driving alone or only with other family members. Throughout the month we’ll encourage each other in taking the next steps toward year-round sustainable travel to worship and in finding other ways that we can improve our stewardship of God’s creation.
