In our 187 year history we have benefited from the service of many talented and wonderful ministers. None of these beloved leaders, however, were more colorful, controversial or loved than Moncure Daniel Conway, who served our church from 1856 to 1862. Learn more about how this Radical Abolitionist and anti-racist warrior changed our church in ways that still reverberate today. This is the first of a two-part sermon series. The second sermon is titled “Skin in the Game II: Peter Humphries Clark and First Church,” which will examine the complex relationship between Cincinnati, our church and America’s first Black Socialist, Peter Clark, who was a member of our church from 1857 to 1887.



Join us for our next Sunday service:
