"Who are the people who have been there in your everyday life and on whose shoulders you stand? Take a moment to picture them. Envision your parents’ faces, the faces of your best friends and of your closest colleagues. Not one of us got where we are on our own. Our lives have been full of people who shaped our faith, our hopes, our work, our families."

About Us & Registration Forms
The flowers and other plantings around the church are beautiful. They were planted by volunteers and coordinated by our Buildings and Grounds committee. We can do our part all summer long to keep our grounds looking neat by volunteering for the Weed a Week effort. A one-time commitment will take only 45 minutes, and you can do your weeding with a friend or family to share the labor. Sign up in the church Lounge, or talk to Charlie Morris for more information.
Welcome to our new members: Our confirmation class
On June 2, First United welcomed 10 new members who completed a year-long study in Quest, the church's confirmation process. It's a year of learning, questioning, challenging, service projects, and field trips. Lifelong faith is a journey, as these 10 young people are finding out. Thanks goes to Quest teachers Alicia Reese, Pastoral Associate for Youth and Congregational Care, and Art Spooner for leading the class all year.
