Would you like to help us think more intentionally about how to welcome all into our midst?

Please join us for a mini-retreat to check in about how our Welcoming Ministry is going at First Church. Help us consider how we can have fresh eyes to see and open hearts to carry Jesus’ radical welcome to every body – that’s people of every race, class, sexual orientation, gender, age, ability and political affiliation- every body!  As we say in worship, we believe God blesses everyone with dignity and gifts to share with the world, and this is a place where everyone can feel a sense of belonging and encouragement to flourish.

Our world needs spaces like these that cherish and welcome all, now more than ever. How do we continue to live out this commitment in community? What does this have to do with our own spiritual journeys and inner work? Expect the use of verbal reflection and embodied spiritual practice. If you would like to join the conversation, please RSVP to Lexi Boudreaux.
