First Church is a progressive Protestant church. Although we encourage people to think for themselves, we share common values and goals such as protecting the environment, promoting interfaith understanding, peace, social justice, and ministering with compassion to a hurting world. First Church is a proud Open and Affirming (LGBT-affirming) congregation, with a special focus on children’s, youth, family, and music ministries. We are all about REACHING IN and REACHING OUT with God’s agape love to every person.
