Easter at First United is a week of events where we celebrate the ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. No matter how you define yourself, we believe Jesus' life and teachings have the power to bring you hope where there's been discouragement, love where there's been indifference, and healing where there's been pain. 

No matter where your journey has taken you, you've arrived at this moment, and we welcome you.

No one belongs here more than you.

PARENTS: Each Sunday, we offer children’s ministry for birth through 5th graders at The Schoolhouse (next door to the church). Children sit with their parents for the first portion of the service and then walk with their teachers over to the classrooms during the “Passing of the Peace.” If you prefer, you are welcome to have your children stay with you throughout the entire service.
