Newcomers Lunches

We are blessed with many visitors and newcomers to our church community. For our newcomers we offer special monthly gatherings in the Hastings Room. Fill a plate with lunch from the social hour held in Margaret Jewett Hall after Sunday morning service and meet us in the Hastings Room. These gatherings allow newcomers to get to know one another, to learn more about First Church, and to enter into dialogue around topics ranging from our faith journeys to basic tenets of Christian faith. Childcare is provided. 

Please check the calendar for the next Newcomers Lunch. We hope to see you there.
