Join us this Sunday, August 13th as we welcome back the Reverend Dr. William Grice to our pulpit.
It’s been some time time since Rev. Grice has been with us and his morning reflection is always so inspiring and helps us with our every day lives.
This Sunday’s sermon title “Trouble Waters, Troubled Times”, will truly intrigue you.
As part of morning praises, we will be enjoying the special handbell music of Linda Lunt and Mary Grattani with Lisa Krueger on piano.
It is our hope that First Congregational will be one of your stops on Sunday as you refuel your spirit.
