Special Announcement: Worship Suspended for First Church

After several phone calls from the congregation and others, Worship for March 15 and March 22 is suspended; We may suspend for March 29 as well. Guidance from public health officials will be followed closely while we decide. Please watch for updates.


We will be offering a streaming worship service next Sunday, March 22. Pastor Daniel and other pastors in the area will join together to offer this to our congregations next Sunday.


Pastor Daniel will be publishing a daily #MorningsOnTheFrontPorch devotion every day, starting on Sunday, March 15, through this crisis and using his podcast of the same name for some of the ministry and programs we had planned. Further details will be published tomorrow. You can always visit his webpage, www.thecuriouspastor.net, to read the posts and listen to the podcasts. You may follow the hashtag devotional, #MorningsOnTheFrontPorch, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vero, and Linked-in. The podcasts may be found on RadioPublic, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and many other podcast platforms.

Tomorrow, March 15: Please remain at home. Pastor Daniel will be at the building in the morning to greet anyone who does not get this message. Please share this information with other members of the congregation.


Thank you for understanding this extraordinary measure we are taking in order to help slow or halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus.


Finally, please pray for:

  • those who are suffering because of this disease

  • those who are working tirelessly in hospitals and clinics

  • the public health officials developing strategies and plans to slow the spread

  • for ourselves that we would not let fear overwhelm being faithful and just with our neighbors, each other, and our selves.
