The pastors of First Church will explore this topic through “From Here to Eternity,” a four-week sermon series in June. We will look carefully at the timeless truths about eternity – not as portrayed in movies or popular culture, but as explained in Scripture – and its implications for our lives now!
All are invited and encouraged to attend! You do not have to be a member of First Church or of any church to worship with us.
The sermons will be presented at the 8:15 and 11:00 Sunday morning worship services. First Church is now offering in-person worship, following all COVID-19 safety protocols. Those who wish to attend are asked to pre-register here through our website by the Thursday preceding the worship services. Our 8:15 a.m. service also can be viewed via livestream, or on our website at any time. Find the Daily Bible Reading which corresponds to this sermon series here.
