Annual Meeting
Sunday, January 30 at 12:00 p.m., via Zoom

Each year on the final Sunday of January, we gather as a church community for our Annual Meeting. The meeting consists of the standard components of any corporation, like approving the annual reports of officers, committee chairs, and staff, as well as minutes of previous congregational meetings over the past year.

But First Church’s Annual Meeting is much more than mundane business! We celebrate our leaders moving on from their terms of service, and we welcome new folks onto committees and into positions of leadership throughout our community. We discuss important ideas and initiatives bubbling up from within First Church, often in response to where God is calling us now.

This year, we will take-up consideration of our Land Acknowledgment, as presented at our Fall Congregational Meeting. We will hear about plans for our Frobenius organ’s 50th anniversary celebration and refurbishment. We will also hear an update on our efforts towards being an antiracist church and our Reparations fund.

Please join us as we celebrate and learn about our ministries and discern together where God is leading us next!
