Christmas Eve Offering Recipients:

We give away our entire Christmas Eve offering every year. This year, you can support one or both of these worthy organizations.  Interchange Food Pantry, a food pantry that First Church founded in 1971 along with a group of neighboring churches, is committed to helping provide healthy food to low-income residents of Milwaukee in a compassionate and supportive environment.  MacCanon Brown Homeless Sanctuary is a daytime sanctuary and multi-resource center for homeless and at-risk individuals. It is a place to be and belong that offers hope to those who struggle for resources in Milwaukee’s overwhelmed safety net.
Make your contribution when we pass the plate, or contribute using the form at this link.


Receptions after each service:  Join us in the Leenhouts Common Room for coffee, treats, friendly conversation and more candlelight after each service.
