First Covenant Church

The mission of First Covenant Church is to unify, nurture and equip the generations to love God and one another and to carry Christ's message into the world.

Ministries of Congregational Life

 

The purpose of Congregational Life is to create opportunities to bring members and non-members of our church and community together in ways beyond the traditional Sunday Service. This is a ministry that uses the gifts and talents of our church body to care for people by means of celebration, support, encouragement, planning events and fostering relationships with one another 

1 Peter 4:8-11 

    “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

Coffee Talk

This is our weekly event after church service where we collectively come together, catch up, snack and drink coffee. Volunteers are scheduled with a partner once a quarter.

Arranging Meals

When an individual or family in our church needs a helping hand we can do this by providing meals for a short or extended period of time. The most common example of this is when a family brings home a baby. We also do this when someone in the church has surgery or a medical condition. 

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

This is a newly resurrected event the church used to do many years ago. Upon sign up, a team arranges dinner at a church member’s home. This is an opportunity for us to connect with many generations of the church. This event usually takes place in February. Be on the lookout for the sign-up sheet with more information.

Special Events

Connecting with each other for fun, outreach and business.  

Celebration of Ministry 

In June we take the time to celebrate the different ministries in the church and how they’ve grown and changed throughout the year. 

Fall Kick-off

This is when we come together and celebrate the transition from summer to fall. There are a number of changes that happen at this time including a new church service time, adult ministry curriculum, and the start up of care groups. 

Wreath Making

This is a wonderful holiday tradition within our church. In addition to making a beautiful wreath for your front door, we have also used this as an opportunity to reach out to the community as well as others in our church family. We encourage members to invite friends and family to attend this great get-together.

Congregational Meetings

Throughout the year we have a few meetings to cover general business information.
