Ready to sign the First Church Membership Book?

The warmest of welcomes to all of you who are relatively new to First Church and might be wondering about the benefits of membership and to our long-time friends who have not yet taken that step!

You might want to know that our by-laws require you to be a member for at least 7 days before voting at any Congregational meeting, and our Annual Congregational Meeting is coming on June 2. This is where members vote on our annual budget and elect members to the Parish Board, the Finance and Nominating Committees, and the Committee on Ministry, as well as on any other matters that require a formal vote. 

For this year's annual meeting, the 7-day deadline requires that you sign the membership book (and that's all it takes!) by Sunday, May 26. We will have the membership book open after services on May 5 and May 12; however, if these dates are not convenient and you want to be sure to make the deadline, please feel free to contact Lillian Anderson at or Rev. Chris at, and we’ll arrange for a time to make that happen.

All new members will be formally recognized and welcomed at the service on June 2. Either way, we are glad you are here!
