Although we cannot physically gather this Holy Week, First Church invites and encourages you to join us for the following events and worship services from the safety of home.
Passion Play – This event was cancelled for the safety of our community, but we invite you to experience its powerful message through the new Passion Play Home Edition posted on our website here (“Resources, Fun and Faith” tab). The Passion Play re-enacts the events of Holy Week, beginning with Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and concluding with his crucifixion and resurrection.
