Thank you Tri Cities.  Our 6th Annual Electronic & Metal Recycle
Event on May 1 & 2 was a GREAT SUCCESS

recycle-logoWe responsibly recycled tens of thousands of pounds of metal and electronics; they did not go in a landfill.  While we could not accept TVs or CRT monitors this year at our event, we shared with hundreds of people where and how they can be recycled.  You may call us for that information.  In the near future we will have totals for what was recycled.  Stay tuned!

Don’t forget, we recycle metal and electronics all year long.  We have FREE drop off and FREE pick up.  So stock up on your unwanted metal and  electronics and give us a call.   Unsure on what can be recycled?

Worship at First Church

 Watch for our new series of worship services – focused on Discipleship – to be published soon.

Adult Education

Our regular season of Adult Education programs will come to an end on Sunday, May 17 with a special presentation, focused on “how  we are caring for orphans and foster kids?  James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:  to look after orphans and widows in their distress…”.  We can all do something.  Our church family has several families who have adopted; our charge as Christians is to care for orphans and support families who are caring for orphans.  Please join us on Sunday, May 17, after morning worship to hear more about foster care or adoption or supporting families who are caring for children through foster care or adoption.  April Kiekintveld from Bethany Christian Services is our presenter.

Adult Education is held most Sunday mornings after morning worship in the sanctuary during the regular season. Our Adult Education sessions are designed to inform and inspire us about many topics.  Join us next fall for Learning with a Purpose!
