This year’s Harvest Home kicks off on Sunday, November 4th. During the month of November, we will ask for different items each week to be brought to the church.

  • For the week of November 4th, we will collect: canned peas, corn, carrots, potatoes (canned or boxed), sweet and regular variety. Bring your donations to the table in the Sanctuary. 
  • For the week of 11/11 – Cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy
  • For the week of 11/18 – Desserts: Brownie mix, cake mix, pie fillings, pie crusts, pudding, jello
  • For the week of 11/26 – Paper towels, plates, cups, coffee, tea


Over the next several weeks, we will get a  “jump start” on a cold winter by collecting donated, new caps, scarves, gloves, and mittens. The items will be donated to F.I.S.H. and to where we see a need.

“Share the Sanctuary!”

We are excited that our beautiful Sanctuary is going to be used for all services at First Church. You can be part of growing First Church by donating to this “Share the Sanctuary” campaign in memory of or in honor of a loved one or a special occasion…We have provided space for our First Service worshipers to move to the main Sanctuary and we will be upgrading the Sound System and Space.

To donate, write “Share the Sanctuary” in the memo line of your check or on the outside of your donation envelope on Sunday mornings.
