Groups Directory

This is a directory of all First Church groups (list in progress 7/4/18, to be completed by 7/10), from social and spiritually nurturing groups to teams that conduct the business of the church, with current contact information.

Whether engaging with Social Justice initiatives, serving on a church committee, volunteering at Sunday Services, or socializing with fellow members, there’s a group for just about every level of interest.
