We Are the Ones MainGraphic

Standing on the Side of Love

The world looks different today than it did even a few months ago. We see intolerance and hatred in communities at home and abroad. We know the times require steady moral leadership but find it lacking in many instances. It’s unsettling until we realize that together, as First Church,

We are the ones we have been waiting for.


For more than 150 years, First Church has stood as a stalwart presence in a frequently stormy world, never afraid to “push off into the middle.”Implications of last year’s political upheaval churns issues of social and economic justice around us and we ask ourselves, what can be done? And who will do it? We will do it.

 

We are the ones we have been waiting for.


This year’s Canvass celebrates First Church’s ongoing commitment to standing on the side of love – being a voice for the voiceless, strengthening the fainthearted, supporting the weak, helping the suffering, and honoring all beings. While the river may be rough, we know that “the river has its destination” and we are ready to go where it takes us.

 

We are the ones we have been waiting for.
