Unfortunately, we can’t meet together in person right now
Phase 2 of our COVID-19 pandemic plan is here!
PARKING LOT CHURCH (have a better idea for a name? let us know!!)
We will be having in person (in car) service on Sunday mornings at 10:15. You come in your car and the parking lot crew (again, name TBD) will give you a prepackaged bag with the contents for the day which have been packaged up at least 4 days before the service (bulletin, announcements, communion, etc.) and will have pew bags for the kids too (car seat bags now??) and will park you so that everyone can see. ** Get there early for a spot up front!
There is still the option to access our weekly services (and daily devotions) on youtube!
** If you would prefer, you may access the weekly bulletin below and bring your own communion bread and juice
What to expect on Sunday morning
As soon as you enter The Gallery, a mixture of natural light and bright, smiling faces will greet you in a heartfelt way.
Service starts at 10:15 AM on Sunday mornings but, with Sunday School starting at 9AM, you will see people hanging around in lots of different spaces of the church early. Then, after the service, there’s ALWAYS plenty of snacks and conversation in The Gallery.
“Let the little children come to me…”
Children of all ages are encouraged to be themselves here at First United.
The following programs aren’t available in our current worship format. They will be back soon!
SUNDAY MORNING BEFORE WORSHIP
Every Sunday at 9 AM, we have a unique learning experience for our children that varies from week-to-week including singing, creative activities, STEM activities and interactive lessons. Each lesson is taught by a volunteer who loves to share Jesus with our children.
After the Children’s Message during our worship, the children in the church are invited to come to Children’s Church where they participate in their own worship together.
Note: There is no Children’s Church on the first Sunday of the month and on holidays.
During worship, our nursery is staffed with two adults that lead the children in a time of play, crafts and lessons. Children from 6 weeks until Kindergarten are welcome to come and play!
KID’S CLUB ON TUESDAY’S
Kid’s Club is our K-5 weekly enrichment where kids get a chance to further develop their understanding of the Bible and
During 1UP on Tuesday’s, Kid’s Club meets in the Orange Room after dinner.
We begin our small groups by sharing a meal together. Members sign up to provide meal for everyone.
Middle and high schoolers break off after dinner and spend the evening in the youth room discussing life and Jesus. We also play a variety of games.
Kids preschool aged through 5th grade play games, sing songs and enjoy interactive bible curriculum.
Adult Small Group
The adults gather near the fireplace and work through various texts (novels, books and books of the bible).
6th-12th grade student ministry
265West is our youth ministry that strives to create solid, positive connections between young people while bringing them closer to Jesus.
265West meets every Tuesday night (and every other night in the summer) during 1UP from 6-7:30 for dinner and a bible study.
We also gather together about twice a month during the school year and hang out, play games and just enjoy each other’s company.
