The past year or so has been difficult - hasn't it?  Perhaps you are feeling crispy?  Burned out, overwhelmed, scared, anxious, adrift, or all alone?  Yeah, same.  But, I am here to tell you, you aren't all alone.  We know what you've been through this year, and we're here for you.  This year, we're focusing on compassion, community, and covenant.  One day, I know, we'll be together again.




Third Friday Tad Talks

Like a Ted Talk, but a tad different... Our church, and indeed our city, is filled with experts. Join us for this monthly program, brought to you by Adult Faith Development, to hear one of these experts share their wisdom a la Ted Talks. With roughly 15 minutes allocated to presentation, and 15 minutes allocated to moderated discussion, this is a quick and easy way for adults and youth to live into our third principle: "We're free to learn together!" Please note, unless otherwise stated, all sessions will be recorded and posted on First Church's YouTube channel for later viewing.

School and public libraries are facing a rise in requests for books and other library material to be removed or banned.  Why is this happening now, and what are libraries and librarians doing to deal with this?  Join veteran librarians, Sallie Barringer and Barbara Bonney, over zoom for their Tad Talk, What Happens When the Book Police Show Up? Friday, May 20, 2022 from 7 to 8 PM.
