Odd Tuesday Fellowship

Join your First Church friends for fellowship on odd-numbered Tuesdays between 6 and 6:30. There's no agenda - no requirement that you arrive on time or stay to the end. Pets are welcome - as are entries and exits for food, beverage, and other things, just like we do in Fellowship Hall. Come when you can, leave when you must. We'll finish in time for people to join the 6:30PM Adult Education series on Parables -- in fact, we'll have a chance to greet them as they arrive.

Use the Zoom link in the Adult Education section below.
