NEWCOMERS LUNCHEONS

Sundays, September 15 and November 17,  12:30 p.m., Harter Room
Sunday, October 20,  12:30 p.m.,  Library

 If you’re new (or feeling new) to First Church, looking for ways to get involved, seeking information about our church or our denomination (the United Church of Christ), interested in meeting others who are new to the church, or in connecting with some folks who already know their way around, this luncheon is for you! On the third Sunday of most months we host a Newcomers Luncheon, where you can meet our ministers and members, learn about our history, explore membership, learn about opportunities for service and action in the community, and hear about our faith formation and educational programs. At these special gatherings in September, October, and November, members of our community will be on hand to welcome you and provide a connection with our many ministries and committees. A light lunch will be served and childcare is provided. Questions? Contact cstewart@hds.harvard.edu. Please save one of these forthcoming dates, if you are feeling ready to consider membership in First Church.
