A Welcome From Our Minister
Our monthly theme for September is "Covenant"
Each month, we focus on a particular theme in an approach called Theme-Based Ministry. With weekly services, a shared collection of readings and resources, and Journey Groups, we live for several weeks with a series of questions on each topic.
Journey Groups are small reflection circles that enable us to go deeper into our monthly theme by sharing our thoughts with a small gathering of people. Groups meet for a couple of hours each month at First or in people’s homes.

Indigenous Art & Culture
On June 18 Rev. Shawn Newton led a dedication of two paintings hung on the wall beside the steps to the Narthex, created by the indigenous artist Leland Bell, and donated by two members of our congregation.
At our June 25 service, Kairos Canada led us through their Blanket Exercise, an interactive learning experience covering 500 years of Canadian history from the perspective of Indigenous Peoples.
