Connect - Build Relationships


24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25


God doesn't want us to be hermits living in seclusion. He wants a relationship with us, and He wants us to build loving, supportive relationships with fellow Christians. Make new friends! Enjoy nature! We invite you to join any of our nurturing groups or even start new ones here at First Church to form new and lasting friendships in Christian spirit!

Contact the church office if you have any questions or need further information.
