First Church Ministry Tour

by | Nov 9, 2023

Whether you are a new visitor or someone who has been worshipping here for over a year, we invite you to further explore First Church.  This ministry tour is a great way to learn more about this faith community – -and is also the first step in the membership process.  

First Church Ministry Tour 

Sunday, Nov. 19, 9:15-10:15am  OR  Dec. 4, 9:15-10:15am. 

Meet in Glenna Hall.

Please RSVP here.  (If you are interested but can’t make it, please use the RSVP form to indicate your availability for an alternate time.) 

This tour is an opportunity for First Church visitors to explore who we are as a congregation and what we do in addition to 10:30 worship on Sundays. On the tour participants will: 

  • Learn about our primary ministries:  Mission and Outreach programs such as Soup Kitchen, Sack Lunch Ministry, and our Overnight Shelter; Children’s and Youth Ministries, Adult classes, Bible studies, and groups; Music Ministry; Fellowship groups and opportunities; Congregational Care. 
  • Consider some key facts around First Church history, our identity as a Reconciling Congregation and member of Interfaith Action of Evanston; and our membership. 
  • Visit rooms on multiple floors where, as Pastor Grace says, “the magic happens!” — and learn where the bathrooms are! (Note that walking is involved, and access to other floors via the elevator is an option to stairs.) 

Before and after the tour, information about membership and the upcoming Inquirers Class (January/February 2024) will be available.  Questions are always welcome. 

Mary Taylor-Johnson, Director of Communications and Membership
