Pastoral and Caring Ministries


Care is a hallmark of the First Church community.  From the Alpha Club to Community and World Concerns, to the Deaconessess and Visitors, to Welcoming and Inclusion, we offer hospitality, meals, prayer, and cards.  Our concern is expressed through the Prayer Shawl ministry, regular visits, and support during times of crisis, sorrow, and life transitions.

One of our newer ministries is a gathering of those widowed.  They meet monthly to share a meal and a knowing look.  In sharing food from the community garden, and extending the table of welcome, we cherish the opportunity to be a community of faith.
